Latest - Valheim Hearth & Home Release Time Confirmed

Thankfully, the developers have confirmed exactly when the Valheim Hearth & Home update will be releasing.

Valheim Hearth & Home will release at 9 am ET/2 pm BST on September 16, as the devs revealed.

We'll let you know as soon as it is live, in case there are any delays.


Although it was hinted at for some time with screenshots, dev logs and general gossip - and we knew an update was on the way - We got a fully animated trailer, release date and some brand new details at August's Gamescom Opening Night Live.

As well as looking very pretty, this put emphasis on some of Hearth and Home's best features, the focus on the home. After showing the hardships Vikings go through, the trailer shows them returning home with food, light and friends. It's a genuinely rather heartwarming trailer.

New Features


The Valheim Hearth and Home update adds new ingredients, building blocks and rebalances for fighting and food. It may reshape the way you look at the game.

The devs recommend you start a new game with the update to truly get the most out of it, though you don't need to do this to play. Either way, just make sure to bring some friends and carve out some time.
