Introduction to Valheim

Valheim is a sandbox survival game developed by the Swedish studio Iron Gate Studio. It was published in early access for Windows and Linux on Steam on February 2, 2021, by Coffee Stain Studios.

Valheim is set in a universe where slain Vikings must show their worth in order to enter Valhalla's halls. As such, the player starts with nothing and quickly learns that the only way to reach the Norse afterlife is to vanquish the horrors that hound Valheim. The player must prepare to face Odin's sworn enemies, guided only by their intuition and occasional suggestions from a raven.

Fun fact:


The term "Valheim" refers to a hypothetical tenth world inside Norse mythology's Yggdrasil world tree.


To live, players must create tools, establish shelters, and combat foes like fallen Vikings. The game has low-resolution stylized 3D graphics, a third-person perspective, and an action-game-inspired combat system. Cooperative gameplay with up to 10 individuals is possible, as well as optional PVP gameplay.

Meadows, Black Forest, Swamp, Mountains, Plains, Ocean, Mist lands, Deep North, and Ash lands are among the procedurally produced biomes. Each biome features a unique difficulty level, complete with unique opponents, bosses, and items. Because of the game's unique food system, in-game hunting, foraging, and farming are essential for progression: the quantity of health and stamina available to a player is determined by the variety and quality of the food consumed.

A skill-level system is also used in the game, which goes from blocking to running. Each talent has varied effects on the game mechanics and can be levelled up to 100. The spear's skill, for example, determines how much damage the player can deal with spears, while the running skill determines how much energy is depleted when sprinting.

The main goal of the game is to defeat the five bosses that are scattered throughout the game's biomes. Each boss must be summoned with a specific offering. A trophy will be dropped once the boss has been defeated; this trophy must be put at the God's Altar to obtain a special power up.

One- and two-handed weapons, shields, bows, and spears are all used in combat. Players can travel between biomes on foot or on specially crafted boats, which range from rafts to various sorts of Viking longships.
