Valheim Hits Five Million Vikings

The milestones just keep coming for Valheim, as a post on Steam announces the Viking survival game has now sold more than five million copies since its release a month ago (thanks Jaysen). Here's what developer Iron Gate says about the achievement:
You’ve done it again! As you are reading this, the Valkyries have ferried more than FIVE MILLION souls to Valheim to uncover ancient treasures, sail savage seas and secure the tenth norse world.

During the little time you’ve spent in Valheim, all five million of you managed to:

  • Spend more than 15,000 years playing Valheim
  • Watch more than 35 million hours of gameplay Twitch
  • Pushed us to number 39 in the best user reviewed games on Steam of all time
  • Made our five-person strong team excited to come to work (virtually) each and every single day (that’s one person per million sales, by the way!)

We watch with pride and excitement, and struggle to find the right words to express our gratitude to you, the community. Exciting new milestones lie ahead, and we for one cannot wait to show you more of the game as we journey through our 2021 Roadmap.

May Frey bless you with a plentiful harvest, and may Heimdall watch over your settlement. Oh, and if you see an oversized mosquito, run.

It's well deserved. Valheim is a great little game. It brings me back to my days in Ultima Online of all things, with a super open-world layout and game play focused on discovery (both of new lands and of new ways to create things).

Ultima Online was actually the first thing it reminded me of once I started playing too. I'm not sure what it is that gives it that feeling, maybe the way you chop trees, or it could be the skill system, or cooking. Either way, I like it, and hope they continue to build on that feeling!
