About this game

Developer: Iron Gate AB


A battle-slain warrior, the Valkyries have ferried your soul to Valheim, the tenth Norse world. Besieged by creatures of chaos and ancient enemies of the gods, you are the newest custodian of the primordial purgatory, tasked with slaying Odin’s ancient rivals and bringing order to Valheim. Your trials begin at the disarmingly peaceful centre of Valheim, but the gods reward the brave and glory awaits. Venture forth through imposing forests and snow-capped mountains, explore and harvest more valuable materials to craft deadlier weapons, sturdier armor, viking strongholds and outposts. Build a mighty longship and sail the great oceans in search of exotic lands … but be wary of sailing too far...

Valheim is what survival games should be.

For a long time, I've always wanted to enjoy survival games. I tried several titles but they end up becoming a chore after a few hours. Valheim, an early access game, is successfully getting rid of the chore aspect of survival games. Yes, you still have to hunt, mine, build to survive the harsh world but it's goes beyond just those tasks. You also get to hunt bosses, increasingly craft powerful weapons, and more. It's a roleplaying game disguised as survival.

It's far from perfect. It still lacks diversity in monsters, weapons, armors, building materials, etc. And the visuals has a lot of room to grow.

I recommend that you try it now. It's not that expensive and the growing community is a good sign.

In its current state, it's an incredibly engrossing experience and perhaps the first survival game of its kind to match Minecraft in pure fun factor. And if it's already this impressive in early access, one can only imagine how good it will be when it has its full release.

Si vous n'êtes pas hostile au principe d'accès anticipé, vendu à petit prix, en l'occurrence, sachez que Valheim offre déjà une expérience très stable et complète, qui s'étoffera au fil du temps et que vous pourrez traverser aussi bien seul qu'avec une généreuse poignée d'amis. À surveiller sur la durée, donc.
