Valheim Steam Sales Top 2 Million With Over 360,000 Concurrent Players
One of the breakout games of 2021 so far has been Iron Gate Studio’s open world survival Viking adventure Valheim. Released less than two weeks ago, the Early Access title has garnered the attention of several people with its visuals, gameplay, and more, but now it has been revealed that over 2 million players have purchased the game.
Iron Gate Studio recently released a post on the game’s Steam page to inform everyone that Valheim has surpassed 2 million sales on the digital platform. In addition to this, it was also noted that the title reached over 360,000 concurrent players over the weekend. 364,629 players, to be exact, according to Steam Charts. Needless to say, this is a wonderful achievement for the studio as the game seemingly came out of nowhere with little to no marketing.

“Forget longboats, we have now blown a 700+ year old record by boasting the largest Viking population in all of human history,” reads the Steam post. “For reference, the previous peak in Viking numbers was set in 1300 AD and was approximately 500,000.
“Everyone at Iron Gate has really been appreciating all the messages, love, questions and thoughts from all of you, so please keep them coming! And again, a big thank you to all of you for helping us reach this ridiculous milestone in under two weeks of sailing onto Early Access.”
Valheim is currently available in Early Access on PC via Steam. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
