Valheim, the survival game by Iron Gate AB, received unprecedented success a few days ago. The indie game received critical reception from fans and also sold over 2 million copies on Steam. That’s a very impressive sales number for a game that is made by only five people.

As you would expect from a recently released game nowadays, an early access game nonetheless, Valheim also has its fair share of issues, nothing game-breaking though.

The patch released today updated the Unity engine and completely disabled Google Analytics. The Forest crypt issue has been fixed while the save system is heavily tweaked. The game will now auto-save every 20 minutes instead of the previous 30. If the player is added to the admin list, then they can use the “save” function in the Console.

CPU usage is improved as well and several localization fixes are made. The sync issue with pickables, like carrots and stones, is addressed, and credits have been updated. Check out the complete changelog below:

  • Disable Google analytics
  • Updated Unity engine
  • Forest crypt fixes
  • Credits updated
  • Save system returned to old-new
  • Pickables sync fix (stones, carrots, etc)
  • Dedicated server CPU usage fix (framerate limiter)
  • Hearth smoke building fix
  • Save system tweaks
  • Console "save" function can be used remotely if the player is added to the admin list
  • Autosave every 20 minutes (instead of 30 minutes)
  • Manual join IP function (dedicated servers only)
  • Extra tombstone checks (to prevent them from disappearing)
  • Better broken world handling (crash/exit instead of loading an empty world)
  • Localization fixes

The complete patch notes are mentioned on the official site as well.

An indie game receiving this much success and popularity is not a rare occurrence. Several other games like Among Us and Phasmophobia have also reached the same achievement. However, their hype usually dies down in a month or two. Let’s hope that’s not the case for Valheim.

Anyway, you can purchase Valheim on Steam for $20. Keep in mind that the game is in Early Access, so you might encounter a bug or two.
