Valheim gameplay trailer released, beta sign ups now open

Iron Gate Studios and Coffee Stain have released a new gameplay trailer for the Viking based title Valheim. The trailer shows different elements of the gameplay including building up an outpost, sailing the seas, and fighting monsters. Valheim has a procedurally generated world so each playthrough will change meaning your tactics may have to change each time. Check out the brand new trailer below.


Valheim’s description reads:

Are you worthy of entering Valhalla? You have been sent to Valheim, the 10th Norse world. Only by defeating the mighty beasts of these lands will you win the favor of the gods. This quest will take you to the far reaches of this world, from the deepest forest to the highest mountain peak. You will craft powerful weapons, build unyielding castles and sail longships towards the horizon.
The key features include:

  • Huge procedural world – explore and inhabit mystical lands, from imposing forests to vast snow topped mountain ranges and stunning meadows, complete with their own creatures of legend and wildlife to hunt and battle
  • Flexible house and base building system – raise mead halls, farms, settlements outposts, castles and more.
  • Intuitive item crafting – forge weapons and armour and craft food and mead worthy of skaldic verse
  • Dodge & block based combat system with a wide range of weapons
  • Build & sail ships – from Knarrs to imposing warships, build legendary vessels to traverse the seas and discover new lands
  • Multiplayer (with focus on cooperation) – Valheim supports independent, player-hosted servers and unlimited world creation.
  • Defeat bosses & collect trophies to progress and craft new powerful items
Players can sign up to take part in the Valheim beta, and invites are sent out semi-regularly about once every other month. Players will be able to travel across the world, craft different items, and survive the world full of dangers. A release date for Valheim is yet to be confirmed but it will be released on PC.
