About the game
Slain in battle, you have been carried to the tenth world. Here, in Valheim, you must conquer the realm and slay the monsters which Odin banished here long ago. Explore deep forest and freezing mountains, and build new settlements on the other side of vast seas – and gain the Allfather’s favour to become worthy of Valhalla!
A beautiful, procedurally generated world awaits you, shrouded in mystery. Venture into deep dark forests, climb snow-peaked mountains and discover what’s left of those who came before you. Take to the seas on a mighty longship, but be wary of sailing too far…

Time for another patch, and it’s a chunky one! This patch should fix a lot of various bugs and issues, and we hope there’s something in here for everyone. For example, the ballista now has two modes: one where it will still shoot at anything in its range, but also a new mode where you set a specific target by presenting it with a trophy of your choice.

We opted out of writing these regular development blogs for the last part of 2022, figuring there wasn’t much more we could tell you that wasn’t about announcing the Mistlands update itself! But now we have passed that particular milestone, and it’s time to look towards the future.
