Early Access hit Valheim smashes 2 million sales in 2 weeks (UPDATE: 3 million now)

UPDATE

Valheim has now managed to move another million copies in four days, which takes their sales numbers to 3 million in 16 days.

The Early Access survival game has hit a few more personal milestones in that time, with over 22 million total hours of Valheim gameplay being viewed on Twitch and a concurrent players record of 390,000 on Steam.

It is safe to say Valheim is a massive hit and, ahead of a planned DLC road map for the remainder of 2021, as our review stated, "the future is very bright for this game."

ORIGINAL STORY

Valheim is the latest PC gaming sensation to come out of Steam's Early Access as the Viking survival game from Swedish developer Iron Gate crosses the 2m sales mark in less than two weeks.

Valheim is a crafting-based survival game set in a procedurally generated purgatory, based on Viking culture, with 1-10 players being able to share a single world.

The game was hit out of the gate, hitting a peak of 160,000 concurrent players on Steam within its first week of release and crossing 1 million sales in 8 days. Now, nearly a fortnight after release, the game has crossed the 2 million sales mark and hit a peak of 367,000 concurrent players.

If you decide to join the 2 million enjoying Valheim already, be sure to back-up your data to avoid a world-destroyer bug.
