Valheim, the game that took the world by storm becoming a fan favorite in a matter of weeks, is getting its first update in Q3 2021. Along with this bit of news, Coffee Stain Publishing and Iron Gate studios announced a rework to their roadmap in the same Steam post yesterday. They will work to have a new roadmap posted soon, as they regretted not meeting the four update quota they set for themselves in the previous one. Stability issues abounded as an unexpected influx of players flooded the game, so rather than let them persist as they worked on new content; the developers opted to work on ensuring the base experience was in a good place.
The first update to the game is called Hearth & Home, and it seeks to add new pieces to build with, a new food system, new cooking station extensions, new foods, and plantable onions with onion flowers. Rather than detailing all of this myself, how about you see what they have to say about it themselves:
- New build pieces – Darkwood roofs and window hatches
- New food system – food will be split into specific boosting categories of health and stamina, making food choices more important based on your playstyle
- New cooking station extensions – spice rack, butcher table, pots & pans
- New foods to take advantage of the new system and cooking station – more than 10 new recipes including Eyescream, Shocklate smoothie, various wolf meats, and more
- Plantable onions with pretty onion flowers
For the more visually inclined, here are the screenshots they shared on their post:
After Hearth & Home is shipped out, Iron Gate plans for a “big Mistlands update” to follow it. I am sure fans will be happy to hear that new content is on the way, as I myself cannot wait to see what is coming in the bigger content drops they have planned.
