Valheim new Mountain update adds mystery to the game on Linux and Windows PC. Thanks to ongoing efforts from developer Iron Gate AB. Which is available on both Steam and Humble Store. Still holding 92% Very Positive reviews.
The Mountain update expands Valheim’s snowy biome and adds brand new instanced dungeons called Frost Caves. They are also similar to the Burial Chambers found in the Black Forest and Sunken Crypts in the Swamps. The Frost Caves also offer three new enemies, with new resources to gather. Likewise, expect new materials required to craft a new armor and weapon set. All playable via Linux and Windows PC.
Only the bravest Vikings can venture into the quiet shadows of Valheim. Ready to face what lurks in the caves and to discover the ancient evil that creeps at night and pillage its treasures.
“We wanted to flesh out the Mountain biome a lot more,” said Henrik Törnqvist, co-founder of Iron Gate Studio. “The goal was to give Mountains a similar challenge in close quarters to what Valheim players can find in the Swamps and the Black Forest. As well as a chance to square off against new feral enemies. You might have noticed a couple fenrings stalking the peaks at night. But did you ever think about where they go when the dawn comes?”

Mistlands, the sixth biome that is next on the developers’ plan. Due to offer Vikings new enemies to tackle, new resources to acquire, and end boss to face. While the world of Valheim continues to grow through Early Access.
“Valheim at its core is a game in which every resource, decision and item you find can be used for something, and fits in the bigger picture,” Albert Säfström, CEO of Coffee Stain Publishing added. “Hearth & Home and the Mountain update have expanded those options and experiences that players can encounter and interact with. We’re excited to see what players will find in the depths of the Mountains.”
