Valheim’s Latest Patch Brings Seasonal Joy and Enhanced Xbox Controls

The popular survival game Valheim has received its latest patch, version 0.217.38. This update, released today, introduces a range of improvements and new features, including a revamped settings menu and the new keyboard and mouse support for Xbox players.

As the holiday season is upon us, players can now enjoy the Yuletide items, automatically toggled based on the current date. This festive addition will surely add an extra layer of immersion and seasonal cheer to the Valheim experience. You can find the patch notes below.


Aside from some regular fixes and tweaks, this patch features two special things that we really hope you will appreciate! Firstly we have changed the seasonal items to be set to activate depending on the date. Since we’re in December, that means the yuletide items will be available right now! And the second highly requested feature is that we have added keyboard/mouse support for Xbox, so that you can play the game however you prefer!

Happy holidays!

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
