Valheim Hearth and Home Trailer
The Valheim Hearth and Home update is the first major expansion to Valheim. The new expansion contains major updates to the ‘hearth and home’, adding more role-playing decorations for your houses. While that is the expansion’s focus, we know we are getting major updates to shields, food recipes, and the health and stamina system. Iron Gate Studios has more announcements to come, with their YouTube channel releasing one-minute snippets every other day. Below you’ll find the most recent video on the Valheim Hearth and Home update about the tower shields.
The post-launch content plan of Valheim was supposed to release the Hearth and Home update not too long after launch. However, when Valheim sold several million copies with the first few months of the game’s launch, Coffee Stain and Iron Gate delayed the content to focus on improving the game’s overall health. Now that the bug fixes are out of the way, we can expect major updates.
Valheim Hearth and Home Release Date
Valheim’s first expansion with the Hearth and Home update is the first expansion to launch for the game’s post-launch content plan. But rest assures this is one of many. Next on the post-launch content update is the Cult of the Wolf’ and ‘Ships and the Sea’. We do not yet know what exactly these content updates will feature. If they are anything like the Valheim Hearth and Home update, we will get regular image teases with one-minute videos as we have seen with the Hearth and Home updates.
Valheim was one of the most popular games we never knew we needed. Valheim picked up steam in February 2021 out of nowhere, with its quirky PS2 graphics and interesting blend of RPG and survival mechanics. It is good to see the game that captured our hearts and minds getting so much love when the Valheim Hearth and Home release date comes on September 16.
