Iron Gate Studios took to the Valheim Steam News tab to tease their upcoming DLC, Hearth and Home.

Warriors have been looking forward to the new DLCs heading to Valheim, the Viking-themed survival title located within tenth world of the world tree, Yggdrasil. Since its launch in early February, Valheim has earned over 6 million individual sales on Steam—meaning the world is now teeming with over 6 million Vikings warriors ready to expand their base and visit the rest of what the team has in-store.

Iron Gate Teases Valheim 'Heart and Home' DLC Ahead of Release

In a "Development news" post in the Valheim Events tab, the Iron Gate team addressed the short time in which their game has grown. In six weeks, they have as many millions of players to show for it with little signs of slowing down.

"Our community is steadily growing bigger and stronger, which is absolutely fantastic!" They wrote.

Several changes have taken place with the small team behind Valheim, as well. While everyone is still working remotely from home, the team assures their audience that this has not slowed them down from making progress.

"We are very honored to have gotten the opportunity to take part in several interviews, from podcasts and gaming newslets to Swedish television! It has been a hectic time, but worry not! We are of course still working on the game," They wrote.

Additionally, they are still working on major bugs—including the infamous Deathsquito—and encourage players to reach out if they have any other glitches to report.

What update would this be, however, without touching on the highly anticipated upcoming content? While the developers are remaining tight-lipped on any real explanations for the DLC or what it's set to add, they did share a unique screencap from the lead artist. The team went on to promise that, with the calming down of events at the studio, the DLC is receiving more attention than ever.

They closed the update by wishing their player base a fantastic weekend and happy Ostara.
