Valheim has managed to bolster over 367,000 concurrent players, which is a confirmation in itself of how good the game is. The developer has recently praised the game’s success by stating that the game reached 2 million sales in total.
We wanted to start by sharing a giant troll-sized thank you! In just 13 days Valheim has been purchased by over two million Vikings, and this weekend we reached a new peak concurrent player milestone of 360,000!
Forget longboats, we have now blown a 700+ year old record by boasting the largest Viking population in all of human history. For reference, the previous peak in Viking numbers was set in 1300 AD and was approximately 500,000.
Everyone at Iron Gate has really been appreciating all the messages, love, questions and thoughts from all of you, so please keep them coming! And again, a big thank you to all of you for helping us reach this ridiculous milestone in under two weeks of sailing onto Early Access.

Valheim seems to be the best game on steam, which phenomenon has gone viral so fast. In less than two weeks since launch, Valheim’s player count and player ascension, in general, shrank other popular video games to a bare minimum.
If the player population continues to rise at the same pace, we might quickly put Valheim on the podium with other most viral games on Steam. What’s exciting is that Twitch streamers don’t seem to influence the game’s popularity, unlike in other games.
Valheim’s reach and popularity have been detailed by SteamDB, which discovers the game’s gradual growth. Keep in mind that Valheim is still in Early Access and the game doesn’t represent the final product. It may grow into something bigger over the coming period.
