Valheim is getting siege weapons, fortresses and fearsome foes

By - | Views: 56,457

The upcoming major update to Valheim with The Ashlands is sounding increasingly exciting, as the developers have another spoiler-filled development blog post up. Naturally, you'll want to avert your eyes if you don't want anything spoiled.

While there's no expected release date yet for The Ashlands because they're still working out all the mechanics, this is an exciting glimpse into what to expect from it. However, we might see some public testing within the next couple of months.

It seems the land will be filled with fortresses and siege weapons, something that was teased on Twitter recently but now we have a clear shot of one:

These fortresses will come with some scary looking creatures too like the Fallen Valkyrie and the Charred:

Sure they look scary, but I would argue the scariest foes in Valheim are still those damn Deathsquitos, sneaky little things. Lost count of the amount of times I've been bested by them.

Oh and if that wasn't enough, there's going to be a Bonemaw Serpent ready to chomp sections of your ships away, or your arms and legs if you happen to fall into the water:

All this plus the upcoming customisation of the difficulty options (and a creative mode) really has me excited, the future of Valheim is sounding simply awesome.

Valheim is available to buy on Humble Store or Steam. It has Native Linux support and it is Steam Deck Verified.

I wonder how well siege will work in single-player.

My disappointment is immeasurable..... And my day is ruined......

Quoting: rcritI wonder how well siege will work in single-player.

I got the impression they'd be manned by nasties. Presumably the player can also use them when captured (or built?). Anyway, looks good. With the drip rate of new stuff it looks like I'll be playing this game for years to come

Be careful recommending Valheim to Steam Deck users. It has severe performance issues that really show themselves on the Steam Deck. It frequently dips below 15 FPS.

It is Steam Deck Verified but honestly it should at best be 'Playable'. There's 'Playable' games that play much better than Valheim on Steam Deck.
