With the Hearth & Home update now behind them, Iron Gate are focusing on the next major biome update for Valheim with the Mistlands and some smaller updates too.

Hearth & Home took quite some time to be released since they're still quite a small team, although it was received positively once it was out as it added plenty to build and the combat was nicely overhauled to be a lot more dynamic.

In a fresh development post they teased a shot of the Mistlands, noting that it's "not a final version, and that the landscape will likely change quite a bit before we figure out just exactly what the Mistlands will look like" and that it's not clear how the biome update will affect existing worlds just yet.

Here's the teaser shot:

Not exactly much to go by but it's nice to know progress is continuing. Additionally though, it seems some smaller updates will be coming that focus on the Mountains. The focus there is to have something a bit more interesting to explore and while there's no final version they did share some concept artwork:

Buy Valheim on the Humble Store or Steam.

I wandered into "Mistlands" the other day and had no idea what it was, I'd never heard it mentioned before. I actually didn't wander far in though, the massive cobwebs put me off - until I looked it up! If it's as brutal as the Plains I'll be very cautious exploring, those damn Deathsquitos are a pain when there are multiple of them at once.

I had to take the boat to find Bonemass' summoning skull altar thing and the island it's on has a very thin slice of Black Forest between the Swamp and a Plains Fuling base with four Berserkers and a herd of Lox - oh the fun of leading Trolls in there or running round the swamp until I'm followed by a small army of skeletons and Draugrs and leading those in for a punch up

Looking forward to more content, to an already fantastic game.

Overall I was satisfied with the Hearth and Home update, I hope next update it would be as big as that one.

One of our latest sessions involved attacking a Fuling village, and while we were being rushed by about 8 of them (got a little too close while popping up on a rock to plan our attack), we got the 'You are being hunted...' event, so we ran back into the village with an army of wolves chasing us. Still not sure how the three of us managed to not be slain!

Edit: This village was also a quick jog away from a Draugr Village. It was an insane few hours of running around!
