We see once again why Steam is such a valuable platform for independent developers. Released earlier this month, Valheim game managed to sell 2 million copies in just 12 days.
Survival game Valheim, which debuted earlier this month, has managed to sell well above expectations. The game was an enormous success, selling more than 2 million copies in less than two weeks. It also managed to break instant player records on Steam.
Reached 367 thousand instant players
Valheim, an independent production, reached 367,000 instant players at the weekend, becoming the third most played game on Steam (ranked 10th for all dates). Among the games that Valheim left behind were giant productions such as PUBG, Rainbow Six Siege, Team Fortress 2 and GTA 5.
Valheim also managed to become one of the fastest rising games in Steam history, reaching 367,000 players in just 12 days. For example, PUBG game was able to reach 350 thousand instant players in three months. Valheim has finally been the fastest-rising game of its kind (survival).
It can also be said that Valheim’s rise on Steam was completely organic. For example, recent phenomena games such as Among Us and Rust have made a sudden rise thanks to Twitch. Valheim, on the other hand, continued to grow rapidly on Steam, although he did not have huge views on Twitch.
In Valheim, a Scandinavian-themed survival game, players are left in the middle of a large map with only their clothes on. Here, on the one hand, you are trying to establish your own settlement, on the other hand, you are trying to protect your area against enemies, monsters and much more.
