Is Valheim coming to console? The sleeper hit Viking survival game Valheim just hit early access, and has been taking the world by storm.

Is Valheim Coming to Console? Everything We Know

According to developer Iron Gate Studio, there are no plans for Valheim on consoles. It will release for Windows and Linux on Steam, but Iron Gate Studio said there may be a Mac version if there is demand. Likewise, they said to not rule out console versions in the future.

The game is in early access, so there wouldn't be a console version for such an early build of the game anyway.

Luckily, the game shouldn't be difficult to run even if you have an older machine. According to the game's Steam listing, you only need a dual core processor at 2.6 Ghz, 4GB of RAM and a GTX500 or similar GPU. The specs are pretty low, so whatever you have kicking around should be more than capable to run the game.

Valheim does support the Xbox 360 and Xbox One gamepad, so you can at least pretend you're playing on a console.
