Valheim is an engaging sandbox and survival video game developed by the renowned Iron Gate Studio and published by Coffee Stain Publishing. Its captivating gameplay is matched by composer Patrik Jarlestam’s musical prowess, and the Unity engine brings its immersive world to life. “Valheim” was released in Early Access via Steam for Linux and Windows on February 2, 2021, and expanded its horizons to the Xbox community on March 14, 2023, covering Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S platforms.

The game’s genesis can be traced back to the passion project of Richard Svensson, who, along with a dedicated team of five, transformed his spare time efforts into an exceptional gaming experience. Hall of Valor’s journey from Early Access to its current state has earned it critical acclaim, and is hailed as a shining example of polished Early Access gaming. After its initial release, the game quickly soared to astonishing heights, selling over 5 million copies within a month and becoming one of the most popular games on Steam.
