Some great games came out in 2020. It was a great year, and many of us were introduced to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, COD Warzone, Doom Eternal, Half-Life Alyx, Genshin Impact, and many more.
Of course, who can forget the infamous Cyberpunk 2077. Even though Cyberpunk did not surprise as much as everyone would have hoped, 2021 is an excellent year for gaming.
At the moment, the hottest commodity is, no doubt, Valhalla. It was developed by a small indie developer team and has broken Steam records left and right.
Valheim’s Steam Sales Past Five Million Players
Ever since its release, this game has done nothing but surprise everyone. No one could have expected that a game developed by only five people would be the most realistic Viking survival game out there.
After the first week, Valheim passed a whopping one million sold, which is undoubtedly a great achievement.
But because this game is unbelievably good, it has only gained more players, and it does not seem to be stopping in growth. Now, Valheim has broken the five million sold mark.
The developers appear very humbled and ecstatic.
Iron Gate’s Statement
Iron Gate, Valheim’s developers, are very determined to make this game even better than it is. One indication is the plan for 2021’s updates, which include four major ones.
Nevertheless, here is what they wanted to say about the game’s recent success: “We watch with pride and excitement, and struggle to find the words to express our gratitude to you, the community.” they humbly stated.
They also went on to talk about the next milestones planned for 2021 and that they can not wait to show players what they have in store.
Overall, they seem like a great team of developers, which is no surprise when looking at Valheim.
Nowadays, Valheim is ranked at the third spot in the Steam library for the most players at one time. Even though it has a lot of roads to get to the most played game on Steam, the game does not seem to stop in growth!
