Valheim has sold more than 10m copies to date

Early Access survival title Valheim has shifted over ten million copies.

The game has reached this milestone just over one year after its release back in February 2021. Developer Iron Gate and publisher Coffee Stain also revealed that Valheim hit a peak of 502k concurrent players on Steam, though SteamDB info points to this record being hit 14 months ago, back when the game was first released.

“We never imagined Valheim would become so big, not even in our wildest dreams, and the past year flew by faster than we anticipated,” Iron Gate boss Richard Svensson said.

“Our team has doubled since launch and knowing Valheim is enjoyed by millions of players around the world honours and humbles us at the same time. Our ambitions for the game have never been stronger and the development of Mistlands is well underway - we can’t wait to bring this new mysterious biome to the game.”

Coffee Stain's VP of publishing Albert Säfström added: “Seeing Valheim’s journey through its first year of Early Access and being by Iron Gate’s side has been an immense privilege. The team is pouring all their development knowledge and love for the craft into the game, and it’s humbling to see the fruit of their work bring joy to millions around the world.”

Following its release, Valheim racked up sales pretty fast, hitting five million copies by the end of its first month.
