Valheim Passes 4 Million Players

A post on Steam announces the meteoric success of Iron Gate's Viking survival game continues, as Valheim has now surpassed four million players just 22 days following its launch. Here's word:
When Valheim first hit Steam Early Access just three weeks ago, we hoped that all the hard work our small team put into the game these past three years would get the attention it deserved.

Little did we know just how much Valheim would resonate with all four million of you.

That’s right! Three weeks into Early Access, and we’ve hit another milestone, four million brave souls embarking on the most dangerous feat in over a thousand years of Viking history - trying to make Odin proud.

Some of the latest:

  • This past weekend, we hit 500,000 concurrent players - this puts Valheim in the top 5 most played games in the history of Steam.
  • Valheim has already been played for a combined total of 10,000 years! That’s 3,649,980 more days than the 20 days it has been on Steam Early Access.
  • Still climbing the Steam’s Top 250 best reviewed games of all time, now sitting in 57th place!
  • 81,000+ Overwhelmingly Positive reviews

For the fourth (and surely not final) time - thank you!!! We couldn’t have wished for a more engaged, passionate and supportive community, and all of your amazing creations and ideas are keeping us motivated to deliver the Valheim you all deserve.

You can have sex in CP2077. You can't do that in Valheim. Therefore CP is better.

So is MP necessary to get anywhere worthwhile or can you tweak your own personal server like in Conan Exiles to speed up gathering and such to make it sane for soloing.

There's no need for cheats or "tweaks" in this game, even the solo experience is fairly well balanced. The gameplay just lends itself more to multiplayer. I wasn't a big fan of playing it in singleplayer but some are so /shrug

So far, you cant tweak anything in the server for that stuff, hoping that will change in time. but its not hat hard to get anything in the game. I'm running a dedicated server right now with 5 of us playing on it, room for a few more if you want in cutter, just pm me in steam.

Its a fun game, we love it. just got our base built and surrounded it with a fence to keep out the baddies. had a mass attack on our bask last night. that was fun. Found my first dungeon in the dark forest. lots of skeletons in there, got the cores you need to make a forge and smelter.

The game amazes me at all the small details this game has. Some really good stuff.

The only thing these two games have in common is that they are on Steam and have RPG elements.

Guess I don't get this game. Got about 10 hours in, seems like completely standard early access open-world fare.

It reveals itself a little piece at a time and playing with others really speeds up that progress. I almost gave up on it playing by myself but then my old WoW group all got together on Discord and we're loving it.

If you need a multiplayer home I'm running a dedicated server, I'm rarely around due to work but the others are always welcoming to newcomers, shoot me a PM if interested.

~33% total growth in a week? Those are impressive numbers, even with the hype wave that's driving it!

That's crazy. I bought it when a bunch of friends bought it, but Nioh 2 has taken all my time, so I haven't played it. Good for them!
