That’s good enough for the # 5 of all time.


Strange as it may sound Valheim It has only been available to play in Early Access for about three weeks. In that short time, the survival game for PC has scored more than 3 million aspiring Vikings on her handmade leather belt. That latest milestone came last Friday and was celebrated by the relatively small development team at Iron Gate. But a title favorite draugr-gallardo has set another record on the Steam charts, one that places it in the Top 5 games of all time.

In just the last two weeks, Valheim it has exploded in popularity, selling first 1 million, then 2 million copies in no time. The development team, of course, keeps up with updates as players flood the swamp (and other procedurally generated biomes), with your last patch arrived a few days ago. Something good too. Valheim just happened Terraria for a record number of simultaneous players of all time, moving it beyond the somewhat similar sandbox style game by a few thousand players.


Concurrent users on Steam in general peaked a couple of weeks ago at more than 26 million, while Valheim now ranked # 5 with over 500,000 concurrent players; who is behind heavyweights like Cyberpunk 2077, dota 2, Counter Strike Global Offensive, Y PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS. The Viking-themed survival game may still rise through those ranks, currently number 3 among concurrent players for the past 48 hours, though it will have to double its player base to win the CD Projekt Red title. Who knows, maybe the Brave indie title will outlive the beleaguered sci-fi RPG in due time.
