The well-liked Viking survival multiplayer recreation called Valheim is not going to be coming (for now) to PlayStation consoles.
Developed by Iron Gate Studio, Valheim first launched on PC Steam in 2021 as an Early Access title. However, it achieved an sudden degree of success during its first month on sale, promoting over 5 million copies on Steam.
To this day, based on SteamDB, it stays one of the most played video games on the platform with an all-time participant peak of 502,387. At the time of writing, it has a 24-hour peak of 35,024 with 24,071 players playing right now.
“Valheim takes place in a world the place slain Vikings go to show themselves match for the halls of Valhalla,” the game’s synopsis reads. “As such, the participant begins with nothing and soon discovers that so as to attain the Norse afterlife, they need to defeat the evils that hang-out Valheim. Guided solely by his instincts and the occasional hints of a raven, the participant must prepare to fight in opposition to the sworn enemies of Odin himself.
This week, Valheim finally arrived on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. According to a Pure Xbox article, the oldsters in control of Xbox played a pivotal position in bringing the game to the eco-friendly model. During an interview on the XEP Podcast, Jonathan Smårs of Iron Gate Studios defined: “At some point, I think (Xbox) reached out and was interested in seeing this on Microsoft platforms. I don’t actually know the major points about that.”
When requested if Valheim is coming to PlayStation, Smårs replied: “We are at present only looking at Xbox. But you by no means know.” We’re sure that’s not the information many PlayStation followers needed to hear, but as they say, never say never.
