Game News Valheim, soon in the Game Pass!
After seducing everyone on PC, Valheim, the survival game that puts players in the shoes of Vikings, will make a small trip to Xbox to conquer more players.
A new stopover for the Vikings
While Valheim is still in the early access phase on Steam, the survival game still intends to conquer new horizons… In any case, that’s what we understood when Iron Gate Studios, the game’s developer, revealed during the Xbox Games Showcase Extended 2022 that the software will land on new media.
Indeed, as you can see by watching the trailer available above, Valheim will land on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S in a year, starting in the spring of 2023. Better, as soon as it is launched on these new machines, the game will also be available on Game Pass consoles and Game Pass PC in order to reach a wider audience.
A real success
Since its launch, Valheim has been able to seduce a huge audience thanks to its astonishing artistic direction and its game mechanics mixing many different video game genres. It is for this reason that in less than a month the title has sold more than 4 million copies worldwide. Today, while the title has been available for just over a year now, more than 10 million players have tried the experience. This result, achieved a little over a month ago, had surprised Richard Svensson, CEO of Iron Gate Studios.
We never imagined Valheim would grow so big, not even in our wildest dreams, and the past year has passed faster than expected. Our team has doubled since launch and knowing that Valheim is loved by millions of players around the world honors and humbles us at the same time. Our ambitions for the game have never been stronger. Richard Svensson, CEO of Iron Gate Studios
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
How to follow the Summer Game Fest 2022?
On JV, we will react live to announcements from the LeStream channel alongside Maxildan and Aymeric Lallée in particular. The program will also be directly visible as a teaser on JV’s homepage. And for those who prefer reading, you will of course find our news throughout the conference. A written summary will also be available
What is the program for Summer Game Fest 2022?
Among the games not to miss, there is in particular the heir to Dead Space, The Callisto Protocol, which shows us its first gameplay images. For its part Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 presents us with its first level. Also on the program: Gotham Knights, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, the first game from Aaryn Flynn’s studio (ex-Bioware) Nightingale, the JRPG One Piece Odyssey, the free-to-play Warframe or even Planet of Lana. Geoff Keighley further announced: “We have a few new game announcements for this show and hopefully a few surprises if all holds together. But it’s definitely a show that mostly focuses on things that are foretold.”
