With the buzz that is surrounding this new survival game, is it coming to console too?

Valheim is a new survival game, similar to games such as Rust, Conan Exiles, The Forest etc.

They are then tasked with figuring out how to survive and fend for themselves.

Despite lacking in the graphics department, the game just has something about it which is gripping and engaging.

From building a farm and raising livestock, to fighting giant trolls, this game has it all and is very deep with lots to explore and figure out as you play.

Is Valheim Coming To Console?

So far the game is only available on Steam and is compatible with Windows and Linux, although a Mac version may be released too.

At present, there are no plans to bring it to either the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

In a FAQ on the official website, the developers state:

"Valheim will be released on Windows and Linux via Steam. A Mac-version will be released if there is any significant demand for it. There are no plans to release on other platforms as of the time of writing but we won’t rule out console versions in the future."
