Valheim had a huge success in its Early Access launch back in February and sold more than 5 million copies of the game within its first month. Since then the game’s popularity has decreased, but now on the horizon is the game’s first major update: Hearth & Home.

Iron Gate has confirmed the release date for Valheims first major update: 16th September. They also released a trailer for the update at the same that you can watch down below.

What to expect from the update

This update will focus on a reworked food and stamina system, as well as house building. 

Confirmed in a Steam update, Iron Gate said that there will be new building pieces added: Darkwood roofs and window hatches. This will open more opportunities to build some wonderful creations. More than likely Iron Gate will have some hidden gems, as they tend to let the players themselves discover new things added.

There will also be new cooking station extensions. Iron Gate mentions a butcher table, a spice rack as well as pots and pans. In addition to this they have also reworked the food system regarding health and stamina. Food choices will have more importance in regards to your playstyle. If you have a more aggressive playstyle you would lean towards stamina food, and if you like to play more defensively you would choose health food. 

And finally there will also be a lot of new food recipes available. Iron Gates have confirmed that recipes such as Eyescream, Schocklate smoothie and various wolf meats will be added, along with other undisclosed recipes. Additionally it will also be possible to plant onions.

Iron Gates has stressed the fact that this is far from a complete list of all the content that will be released. To find out everything about the update you would need to wait and see for yourself.

The update will be released for free to everyone that owns the game.
