Like Animal Crossing in 2020, Valheim has been this year’s runaway success – at least in terms of the first three months.

Today, March 19, the developers shared an update on Steam, including new info on the Hearth and Home update and a sneak peek screenshot. Here is what we know about the release date so far.

So far, we’ve received no official release date on Hearth and Home, however, in today’s Steam development update, Iron Gate confirmed that they are moving forwards with work on the new content. The message they shared with players is below.

“A lot of you have reached out and asked about the road map. How’s “Hearth and Home” coming along? Much of our focus has been on play testing and bug fixing, but as things are calming down since launch, we can spend more time working on our first big update!”

They also added an image of the team in a video conference, discussing details on the Hearth and Home update and shared a brand new, unseen screenshot. Based on this info, however, it still seems Hearth and Home is a way off.
