And we immediately wanted to give players even more power to express themselves. Create the homestead of their dreams” said Henrik Törnqvist, co-founder of Iron Gate Studio. “Though it’s coming a little later than expected. The player base has been fantastic – understanding that we wanted to get Hearth and Home spot on. And in turn we’ve listened to our amazing community to keep building Valheim with them.”
