The better half and I are playing an early access survival game - Valheim!
A brutal exploration and survival game for 1-10 players, set in a procedurally-generated purgatory inspired by viking culture. Battle, build, and conquer your way to a saga worthy of Odin’s patronage!
Huge procedurally-generated world – explore and inhabit mystical lands, from mysterious forests 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.
Despite being early access, we have not yet come across any bugs or glitches. Time just melts away. I wish I had holidays at the moment so I could play for a decent slab of time!
Building is addictive - I wanted to quickly add a mezzanine floor for storage to the base and somehow spent 4 glorious hours completely redesigning and building instead.
The food system is a little annoying, as you have to eat a variety of foods - your character will not eat the same thing within a certain time period.
