In mid-2022 it was announced that the survival game Valheim would also be released for the Xbox consoles. So far, only spring has been in the room, but now there is more concrete release information. And they’re pretty gratifying.
Because like the current Embracer Group quarterly report – the video game and media holding company behind the game – the release of the Xbox implementation is imminent. At least that’s what the report says in concrete terms.
“Valheim, developed by Iron Gate and published by Coffee Stain, is expected to release via Xbox Game Pass in March.”
Although no specific day is known, it obviously won’t be long before we can dive into Norse mythology on the Xbox and fight for survival there. Everyone with Game Pass can also be twice as happy, because the title opens directly in Microsoft’s game service when it is released, so it is not necessary to buy the game if you have a subscription.
Also confirmed for a long time: Thanks to crossplay, you can also gamble with owners of the PC version.

What exactly is Valheim?
Valheim is a survival game set in a randomly generated world set in Norse mythology, more specifically the eponymous tenth world of the world tree. Mechanically, the title offers the usual fare of the genre, so you have to farm resources, for example, and then use them to produce various things, erect smaller buildings and, of course, provide enough food.

The special thing about Valheim is not only the unusual setting, but also the co-op focus of the game. Although you can also jump into the fight for survival alone, you can also do this with up to 10 people and together the fun increases to even greater heights.
At least that was the case in the Early Access version that was previously only available on the PC. Shortly after its launch, Valheim generated a huge hype that has leveled off a bit, but the game is still popular. And maybe it will soon be on the Xbox too.
