Valheim Sales Top 1 Million Units in 1 Week

Valheim Sales Top 1 Million Units in 1 Week - Sales

by William D'Angelo , posted on 11 February 2021 / 2,331 Views

Coffee Stain Publishing and developer Iron Gate AB announced the action-adventure RPG, Valheim, has sold over one million units in its first week available on Steam Early Access. 

The game has hit over 160,000 concurrent users and over 127,000 peak viewers on Twitch. 

"This week may go down as the fastest, most powerful and biggest ever Viking invasion witnessed in human history," reads the announcement post from the developer. "Why? Valheim has already surpassed one million sales in our first week on Steam Early Access. For measure, that is equivalent to roughly 8,333 Viking-crammed longboats heading to their next conquest!

"Not only have we surpassed our first huge milestone together, but the way you have all rallied your weapons and embraced Valheim has been incredible. In just over two years what our small yet formidable studio has been able to achieve is mind blowing.

"We really want to thank you for the incredible support you’ve already shown us, with 160,000 peak concurrent users and over 127,000 peak viewers on Twitch on our first week alone, and this is only the beginning!"

Here is an overview of the game:

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...

Key features:

  • Huge procedurally-generated world - explore and inhabit mystical lands, from mysteriousforests to imposing snow-topped mountain ranges and stunning meadows, complete with their own creatures of legend to battle and wildlife to hunt.
  • Co-op PvE (2-10 players) - - Whether you want to brave the lands alone or venture with trusted allies, Valheim supports independent, player-hosted servers and unlimited world creation. We recommend playing co-op with 3-5 players.
  • Punishing dodge & block based combat system with a wide range of weapons
  • Build & sail ships - from flimsy rafts to imposing warships, build legendary vessels to conquer the seas and discover new lands.
  • Summon and defeat vengeful primordial bosses of myth and legend, and collect trophies to progress and craft new powerful items
  • Flexible house and base building system - raise mead halls, farms, settlements outposts, castles and more.
  • Intuitive item crafting - forge the finest weapons and armour, and craft food and mead.
  • Dedicated server- for players who want to run a persistent server. If you prefer not to run a server on your PC, consider renting a server at G-Portal.

Watched a couple of streamers play this for an hour. Looked pretty bad even for Early Access standards. Fugly graphics, terrible enemy AI and horrible combat.

It is an amazing game. You have a bad take. It has a massive map, loads of content, building is insanely fun. It is probably one of the more polished early access games to hit the market. If all that needs refining is the AI and slight combat tweaks for an early access game that is actually impressive. It may not be your taste, but it is far better than pretty bad.
