It was only last week that Steam started the early access phase of the multiplayer survival game Valheim. A short time later, a great success had been indicated, which can be seen, among other things, in the current Steam charts. In the meantime, the game has even reached a major milestone.

As the responsible developer team at Iron Gate Studio announced, Valheim has sold more than a million copies after just a week. Many other games fail to reach this mark even after many months, but it only took the survival game a few days to do so. The developers are also more than satisfied with the number of users: the peak is currently around 160,000 simultaneously active players on Steam. Valheim is even very popular on the Twitch streaming platform, where it has a peak of just over 127,000 simultaneously active viewers.

According to Iron Gate Studio, however, this is only the beginning of a long and above all successful journey:

"We're really excited to continue working together throughout 2021. We're bringing you tons of cool new content, improvements, and … ways to die – both via Early Access and beyond."

Accordingly, the fans can expect a lot in the next few months. What content and features do you wish for Valheim in the future? Let us know in the comments!
