Valheim celebrates anniversary by teasing the Mountain update

You'll be heading into the mountains with the next update.

Iron Gate is celebrating the first anniversary of Valheim with a couple of teaser images for the Mountain update, which is slated for release in early 2022.

Today, February 2, marks an entire year since Valheim first launched, and as part of the celebration, the game has been discounted through the Steam Lunar Sale. Instead of the usual $19.99, it's on sale for 25% off at $14.99 now and through the weekend.

The studio also announced it is bringing the game to Steam Deck and is working on ensuring it will run as smoothly as possible on the handheld system.

Along with the Mountain update, the team has also ramped up work on Mistlands. According to Iron Game, the phase of nailing down the core concept is finished and it knows what kind of inhabitants will be present in the biome. Currently, the team is working on new build pieces and enemies, as well as defining more of the new mechanics that will be introduced.

As the development of the caves in the Mountain update is gradually progressing, that means more and more energy can be focused on the Mistlands update. There’s a lot to be done in order to bring players the biome, but the team is really liking what it has so far. It's also said that Mistlands will focus more on adventure and exploration than on building.

If you are having some issues or are just jumping in, you may not be aware that Valheim has a command console where you can enter codes. You can use these to remove your beard, spawn items, and almost anything you can imagine. These range from little quality-of-life improvements to full-on invulnerable god mode.

Trying to get Root Armor? Taking on the Abomination boss is the only way to get Root Armor, and this is a powerful foe that you'll need to fight plenty of times. Root Armor may take plenty of Roots to craft, but it has some handy bonuses that make it worth your while.
