Hearth and Home - Release Date
This article is based on preview information and is a work in progress.
Update From The Devs NEW!
The devs of Valheim have provided us an update - though there isn't much specific news of a release date. They're simply letting us know that their attention is now set on the upcoming update. They did, however, provide us with a cryptic screenshot of a crow perched on someone's hand. Whatever could this mean? Let us know in the comments if you have any ideas!Check Out The Dev's Post Here
First Major Update
Iron Gate have released a roadmap detailing info on the next major update, though we've had no news about when the exact release date will be so far. Given that the team of developers has their hands full with patching up bugs, it's likely that this first update won't arrive for a month or so. We're hoping to see this at some point in early April, but no official announcement has been made.Check Here for the Latest News and Info!
The Hearth and Home Update
The following contains speculation on upcoming updates.
Valheim’s first major update: The Hearth & Home, has a name which to us implies structure- and base-building changes might be on the horizon!
Possible additional items & materials
|1||New building materials|
Although we don't know for sure, it's likely that this new update will bring with new ways to further spice up our living quarters. Perhaps newer, sturdier building materials and new furniture are in order?
Upside Down Triangle Pieces?
One of the most widely desired changes when it comes to houses appears to be upside down triangle pieces! As you can see in the above image, the currently existing triangle piece's orientation doesn't allow you to fill certain holes in your structures, which is quite frustrating for some players.
More Food On The Menu?
A hearth is a fireplace, so we can perhaps expect to see some more additions to the types of food we can cook! Food is an absolutely essential part of the game, giving you the extra stamina and HP needed to overcome even greater threats. Maybe we can get some more end-game and early-game foods to play around with?Check Out The Best Food In The Game Here
Possible New Features
|2||New types of food|
|3||New plantable food|
New Seeds? An Expansion To The Cultivator?
Perhaps we'll see an expansion of the Cultivator's abilities, as well as the addition of new seeds to plant? At the moment, excluding trees, there are only two plantable crops: carrots and turnips. Turnips are obtainable in the Swamp, but after them all we have is Flax and Barley. We think the Plains Biome is next in line to get a new "proper" vegetable crop - perhaps Corn or something similar?Full Seed List
What Do You Think?
We'd like to hear your thoughts as well - do you think we'll be getting new food as well in the first major update? Do you have other speculation of your own?
