Valheim is everywhere right now. If you’ve been paying attention to gaming at all in the last few weeks, you’ve probably seen something about this unique Norse survival game. Valheim has been climbing the charts since its Early Access launch this month, and now developer Iron Gate Studio and publisher Coffee Stain have provided some impressive sales numbers to quantify the game’s success.
According to an official press release, Valheim has now surpassed 3 million copies sold within just 16 days of its initial release. That kind of reception comes not only from the fact that the game is being well-received by players, but also from Valheim’s popularity in the streaming realm. It is currently one of the most popular games on Twitch, with fans watching over 20 million total hours.
These kinds of success stories are always fun to see. Valheim essentially came out of nowhere; it is made by a small team Sweden, and didn’t receive a ton of mainstream coverage prior to its Early Access launch. And yet, the folks at Iron Gate Studio clearly found a setting and a formula that resonates with players and viewers alike, because the game is currently the 78th best-reviewed game of all time on Steam.
