Viking survival title shifted 1 million units in 5 days

That’s according to designer Iron Gate Studio and publisher Coffee Stain, who also called out the Viking Early Access title has hitting a peak concurrent user figure of 500,000 individuals on Steam.

In truth, it’s obviously one of just a handful of games to reach this turning point, sitting together with hits like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and Cyberpunk 2077.

” I do not believe I have actually had time to consider it,” Iron Gate CEO Richard Svensson said.

” I understand that gamers like the video game a lot, however at the exact same time I believe that I can make something even much better in the future. I’m anticipating including more content to the video game, especially working on the staying biomes. Our current roadmap only reaches the next biome and we hope to have it done by the end of the year, but it might very well take longer depending on how smooth the advancement will be. I truly do not wish to worry the development, that never ever ends well.”

Coffee Stain Publishing boss Albert Säfstrom added: “I was describing Valheim to a friend over a year ago as a game that made me feel how I felt when I fell in love in video games for the very first time. Up until 3 weeks ago I believed this was an unique connection I alone had with Valheim. Seeing the amazing reception from gamers in these previous weeks has actually made me understand that Valheim is something truly special, not only for me, however for more players than I could have thought of.”

Striking 4 million copies offered is just the most recent industrial milestone for Valheim. Within a week of launch, the Viking-themed title had actually sold more 1 million copies, before smashing 2 million in less than a fortnight. By its 16th day on the market, the video game had offered 3 million units.
