Searching for particulars on Valheim Mistlands? Whereas the wait is not over fairly but, Iron Gate has began releasing just a few extra particulars on the long-awaited replace. It is onerous to imagine it has been greater than a yr since Iron Gate’s Viking survival sport launched on Steam early entry. It loved over 5 million gross sales (opens in new tab) within the first month, which got here as a little bit of a shock to the (then) five-person growth workforce.
Since then we have had the Fireplace and House replace (opens in new tab) and the addition of Frost Caves within the Mountains. And there is a whole lot of pleasure across the upcoming Mistlands replace which is able to introduce a complete new biome to discover. I say “introduce”, however yow will discover Mistlands within the sport proper now, although these areas are very a lot placeholders, with no constructions or creatures—hostile or in any other case—to carry it to life.
So if you happen to’re prepared to seek out out what to anticipate from the following massive patch, here is what we all know in regards to the Valheim Mistlands replace.
When can we anticipate to play Valheim Mistlands?
No official launch date has been introduced for the brand new Mistlands replace, although it’s anticipated to reach in 2022. The brand new biome was initially deliberate for late in 2021, however was pushed again in favour of fixing bugs and different minor points after the sport exploded in recognition.
It is also value noting that Patrik Jarlestam, the composer of the Valheim soundtrack not too long ago tweeted (opens in new tab) that he’d been engaged on “new music for Valheim, popping out quickly”.
I am going to replace this information after we get a particular launch date.
You will get to discover the brand new Valheim Mistlands biome
The Mistlands look, nicely, misty—at the very least, from the little we have seen up to now. It seems to be like a moist and wet area, scattered with sharp rocks, ruins, and cobwebs. Every biome in Valheim has its personal boss, so what this one will probably be, and what it’s going to drop, is anybody’s guess.
You’ll be able to presently discover the unique ideas of the Mistlands biome within the stay sport, although you will usually must discover in the direction of the outer edges of the map to seek out them. These areas appear to favour tall, historical timber, and it is unknown how a lot of the unique biome will probably be retained within the completed model.
Assuming Mistlands works the identical because the Fireplace and House replace from final yr, you will must begin a brand new world (opens in new tab) to see the adjustments within the new biome mirrored. That is nonetheless unconfirmed, nonetheless.
Valheim Mistlands creatures: Two have been teased
Iron Gate is conserving fairly quiet in regards to the sorts of creatures we’ll encounter within the Mistlands biome, nevertheless it has teased a few them over latest months. First there’s the idea artwork for some kind of bug. There is no telling whether or not this will probably be hostile or not, but when Deathsquitos are something to go by, you will not wish to run into considered one of these unintentionally.
Iron Gate revealed the Mistlands Hare extra not too long ago, which hopefully has a temperament to match its cuteness. The video above reveals the way it was created and the way it seems to be in-game.
No different creatures have been revealed but, although these spiderwebs discovered everywhere in the Mistlands are greater than a bit regarding for arachnophobes.
Weapons and equipment
We do not know a lot in regards to the weapons but
Iron Gate has mentioned that Mistlands will add many new weapons, however we solely learn about two of them up to now. Each of those are ranged weapons, so that you’re in good fingers if you happen to desire conserving your distance and enjoying it protected.
The primary is the Mistlands Bow—test it out within the video above. It seems to be prefer it’s been constructed from some form of backbone, which is greater than a bit disturbing. The way it will examine to the flashy Draugr Fang (opens in new tab) stays to be seen, however as Mistlands will presumably be more difficult than the Plains biome, some additional firepower is likely to be welcome.
The second weapon is a crossbow, teased initially on Twitter earlier than a latest replace revealed a greater picture.
It is unclear whether or not all the weapons deliberate will want Mistlands supplies to craft. The Mistlands Bow would make sense, because the title is sort of literal, nevertheless it’s doable that not all new weapons will relate on to the brand new biome.
You’ll craft an opulent cape
A latest weblog replace (opens in new tab) teased a brand new feathered cape, match for less than the perfect Viking adventurers. You’ll craft it utilizing feathers, and presumably another so-far-unannounced materials.
It is unclear what armor score this new cape will supply, however because it seems to be so majestic, do you even care?
Meals and assets
New assets: Black Marble and Black Core
Black Marble is likely one of the new assets that you can discover within the Mistlands biome. It is unclear how this will probably be used however photos have been teased that present you may construct constructions from it, so presumably it’s going to work in the same approach to stone.
Black Cores, alternatively look like a sort of particular useful resource, possibly much like Surtling Cores. Evidently these new cores will primarily be present in Mistlands dungeons, although what they will be used for is anybody’s guess.
Meals for thought
New meals can be arriving with the Mistlands, together with new recipes to make completely different meals. Once more, the main points aren’t recognized, although a picture was not too long ago posted displaying the doable dishes you would possibly put together within the upcoming replace.
Will the Mistlands be harmful?
Probably, sure. Although maybe nonetheless not as harmful because the timber (opens in new tab).
