Patch notes


⚠️ Note: This update is for the Public Test branch of Valheim only, and may therefore be unstable!

Prior to launching this update to the Default version of the game, we want to have a chance to discover bugs and fine-tune the balancing to ensure the best game experience.

[list][*]ACCESS: Right-click Valheim in your Steam library, then select ‘Properties’. In the new window, select ‘Betas’ and type in the code “

”. The Public Test branch should now be available for you to select. The PTB FAQ can be found here.

[*]FEEDBACK: Please leave any feedback in the “#valheim-public-test” channel in our Discord or through the form on our website.

[/list]Please remember to be considerate towards players who are not participating in the Public Test, as some may prefer to avoid spoilers. As indicated by the access code, please ensure to create backups of your save files before playing.

Further tweaks and bug fixes are incoming! For this round we have made some adjustments to enemy spawning, such as giving the shield generator the same anti-spawning properties as a workbench. There are also some tweaks to the new Drakkar ship to make it easier to get back onto should you fall overboard, as well as some terrain changes to make it a bit easier to sail into the Ashlands.

In addition to the fixes, we have also added two new build pieces, and these you will be able to place directly in the lava if you so desire!

Abbreviated Patch Notes:

  • Balancing tweaks in Ashlands
