Valheim developer Iron Gate Studio has announced a slight delay to the game’s planned launch of new content, with the first Hearth and Home update now expected in Q3 2021.
In an update posted to the game’s Steam page, the studio said “We weren’t prepared for such a large influx of players, and this highlighted a thousand new problems and bugs that needed to be fixed urgently. Our priority has been to make the current experience as stable as possible and this has meant new content has taken a backseat. To put it clearly; we haven’t been able to focus all of our resources on Hearth & Home until May.”
To make up for the delay, the studio has revealed some of the contents of the forthcoming update to the Viking-themed survival game. There’ll be new build pieces including Darkwood roofs and window hatches, new cooking station extensions with an overhaul of the food system which will make food choices more important, depending on your playstyle.
Finally, the Iron Gate team will also be holding a Reddit AMA tomorrow at 1pm UK time on the game’s official subreddit to answer fans’ questions on the Hearth and Home update which is aiming to launch for Valheim on PC in Q3, 2021.
A lot of you have been asking about the status of the #Valheim Hearth & Home update. We thank you for being patient with us, and hopefully this will sate some of your curiosity! 🧡✨https://t.co/NZIswc9auH
