The long-awaited update to homestead options in Valheim is finally here, bringing with it a food rebalance, new building options, new items, and a bunch of other minor improvements and bugfixes. There have also been some significant changes to combat, including a new stagger bar and a general weapon rebalance that should make more weapons viable as primary weapons.

On top of all the cool new items and features, there’s something “something dark and mysterious that seems to spread across the plains” for players to discover in this update. You can read the full patch notes below, and if you find this dark and mysterious something, let us know in the comments! We’ll be hanging out in our new Viking hot tub in the meantime.
