Starts February 2nd. I have been in the beta since last August. Awesome game, I just love the artstyle and the world ambience. Definitely worth checking out.

    Yes and no, it is single player but can have 10 player co-op servers, there is no non consensual pvp, have to flag your self for pvp.

    Flagging for PvP nice :)

    Game is out in EA and is only $19.99, well worth it imho.

    Didn't they cover this a while back? 

    I remember buying some viking game that looked very similar to this because of the article.

    However, if this is a completely different game I'll check it out.

    They did a article giving website link to sign up for closed beta and a video article showing a new trailer.

    The closed beta was invite only and under nda. This just released into EA on feb 2nd. 

    You are probably thinking of Valnir Rock or Rune 2

    You got it, Valnir Rock.

    Not paying full price for something that isn’t fully complete
    For $20 its far more complete than any other EA game I bought.

    For $20 it's more complete than most fully released survival types at 3 times the price or more. Many survival types fully release bare bones and then add those pieces in later. ARK did that, but often for no extra fee (because its up front cost was already expensive as hell). Conan Exiles did that and charged "DLC" prices for it.

    Valheim still has some work to do but even if someone doesn't want to buy in EA, it's definitely worth keeping on the watch list. This team has some interesting ideas.

    After I watched a couple of streamers play the game, I was hooked. I broke my own rule of "never buy early access." I'm having a blast after a rocky start: I missed the message or some such that advised me to use my [tab] key to access my inventory and crafting :blush:

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    I'm tempted to try this game but I'm sure if I played it solo I would lose interest quickly.  I don't have any friends who want to play it.  If I understand correctly it's possible to join other peoples games but how does that work out?

    Have any of you tried that?

    I am starting to think we need to send remsleep to the Greyling Rehabilitation Institute.

    I played it solo since last august when I got in beta, it all depends on the individual I guess. There is alot to do even after killing the bosses if you enjoy terra forming and building. And at $20 it is well worth the experience IMHO.

    As far as the co-op goes they are all private dedicated servers, there are no official ones where anyone can join. The Valheim discord had a lfg channel where you could go and seek servers that will let people play on them though.

    That reddit thread is pure gold. Totally hilarious. There are so many good stories people tell with this game.

    I loved that thread too. I love all the ideas people come up with on the things about this game on Reddit.

    It is completely doing VERY little that's why.What do you call complete for a survival game,no mounts,no ship building,no crew,no tames other than in a pen,not much in way of water zones if at all.

    VERY little zaxis,pretty much 99% of combat is on the ground.The building mechanics are weak,the bed mechanics are just dumb.

    Creatures are ..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz boring and imo don't even look good,spawns and AI is weak.

    Terraforming is half  assed ,not nearly what i want from terraforming.

    What does it do good>>>nothing.Average crafting and everything else is sub par.It is not worth $20 because you could buy Atlas at one time for $11 and still the same price at 20 but you can do a hell of a lot more including running your own server with way more settings.
    This is just sub par on most every level of design.
