“Valheim” is coming to PC Game Pass later this month

viking survival game Valheim is coming to PC Game Pass in September, ahead of its launch on Xbox consoles next year.

“We’re not trolling when we say that Valheim is coming to PC Game Pass on September 29, but there will be Trolls,” the subscription service manager shared Twitter Account.

Xbox announced that Valheim was coming to the game in June, but hadn’t shared an exact date until now. The Early Access PC game was a huge hit in 2021 and hit 6 million players in just over a month.

For anyone who has yet to play the popular survival game, Valheim is “a brutal exploration and survival game for 1-10 players set in a procedurally generated world inspired by Norse mythology”, as described by the game steam page. “Craft powerful weapons, build longhouses, and slay mighty enemies to prove yourself to Odin!”

Developer Iron Gate Studio is currently working to bring Valheim on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles, where it is expected to launch in Spring 2023.

Since announcing the port, Iron Gate Studio has confirmed that the Xbox and PC versions of the game will include full cross-play support, meaning players from all platforms will be able to play together. However, Iron Gate shared that it’s “a little fuzzy” on whether Xbox and PC progress can be synced.

“Since its launch, we have wanted to make Valheim so accessible to as many people as possible – no matter what platform they’re playing on – and it’s so satisfying to see everyone’s hard work come to fruition with these Microsoft and Xbox announcements,” shared Albert Säfström, VP publishing at Coffee Tache – Valheimthe editor.

Earlier in the year, Valheim received a major Mountains update, which added a new dungeon, more enemies, and additional loot for players to find.

In other gaming news, a release date for vampire survivors version 1.0 has been announced.
