The latest Viking-inspired title, Valheim, has hit three million individual sales in only a few short weeks since it’s release.

The team took to Twitter to announce their achievement in a Tweet published on Feb. 19. In it, they thanked their audience and fans for the milestone victory—just over two weeks since its official Early Access launch on Feb. 2. Even more impressive is the exponential rate of their expansion, hitting 1 million within the first week and 2 million only six days ago.

Valheim Reaches 3 Million Sales

The reportedly five-man team posted a longer update on their Steam News tab detailing the event.

“This February has been truly wild!” They wrote, “Valheim has now been purchased by over three million brave Vikings looking to survive the 10th world of the Yggdrasil - or die trying - probably crushed by a falling tree.”

The post continues, “To keep up with the old norse references, this is now equivalent to 74,319 longhouses stuffed with Vikings singing songs and celebrating victory with some great tasting mead, so.. SKÅL!”

They also included a short list of other personal broken records, including:

  • Over 60,000 ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ reviews.
  • Officially entered the Steam’s Top 250 best reviewed games of all time at rank 78.
  • Currently 7th most streamed game on Twitch, effectively now more frequently viewed than CS:GO and Minecraft with 20 million hours watched in total.

The team concluded their letter with another dose of gratitude toward “everyone who has already joined us on this exciting journey of mythological proportions.”

Praise Odin! May the brave drengir trudging through the untamed wilds be blessed with the judgement of Tyr, strength of Thor, sense of Freyja, and cunning of Loki.

Valheim is available to play in Early Access on Windows and Linux machines via Steam for $19.99 USD.
