It also supports self-hosted or independent servers, as well as unlimited world creation. So, if you enjoy this genre of game and want to put your creativity into practice, invest in Valheim.



Valheim Gameplay: how is the game?

One of the reasons for the success of Valheim is in its theme, as it is set in Viking mythology. In this game you will be a warrior killed in battle who will have his soul taken by the Valkyries, who are demigoddesses chosen by Odin, the father of all gods.

They will transport you to Valheim, the tenth Norse world, where you will be the new guardian of primordial purgatory and responsible for slaying Odin's ancient enemies, as well as bringing order to Valheim.

Throughout the game, you will have to survive the challenges of environments and enemies, forge your weapons, create your house or castle, build ships to conquer the seas. Not to mention that you will need to grow and produce your food to maintain health throughout your journeys.

In addition, you can explore mountains, valleys and forests of all kinds. But don't forget that you'll also have to fight and fight mystical beasts and wild animals, which is made easier with the possibility of collaboration between players (that's why it's a multiplayer game) and also if you don't want to die, again, alone.

In addition to the theme, another factor that made Valheim a worldwide success is its cost-effectiveness. For only R$ 37,99, you have early access to a game of good quality, great gameplay and few bugs, although it is still under development.


For those who don't know, an early access game, also known by the English term "early access", is still in the early development process. But to raise funds for the purpose of improving it, its creators put it up for sale at a lower price.


That way, the gaming community can help creators fix bugs, suggest improvements, and give feedback about a game. It's like crowdfunding and whoever buys it later receives access to all versions and also the complete work, when officially released.

When asked how long Valheim will have early access, one of the developers at Iron Gate said: "For at least a year, but depending on player feedback and the amount of content we choose to put in the final game, it could take longer."

It is worth emphasizing that this is a promotional value and, according to the game's developer company, the price is likely to increase as new versions are released.
