Valheim has continued to sell a metric viking-ton, and has now hit the 5 million player milestone in just over one month. This is along with over 120,000 reviews on Steam with a 96% Overwhelmingly Positive rating score, which means over 115,000 people have given Valheim a positive rating. Basically, everyone and their dog loves this game, and it appears that the sky's the limit for this co-op open-world survival title.

Iron Gate has also revealed some statistics from Valheim which are pretty interesting. Over the past month, players have spent over 15,000 years playing the viking title, which makes sense considering it's 212,961 player average of the last 30 days. It's even been challenging Dota 2 for the second most played game on Steam over the past week, with it's all-time peak at 498,478 players. More than 35 million hours of gameplay have also been watched on Twitch, and the game has been pushed to number 39 of the best user-reviewed games on Steam of all time. There's also the neat fact that considering there are 5 members on the Iron Gate development team, that's 1 million sales for each member.

Considering it's only been a month so far, there's still a lot to look forward to during the next 11 months of development time until Valheim is released out of Steam's Early Access. There's new milestones and more of the 2021 roadmap to look forward to, which shouldn't have a problem of being completely fulfilled due to the overwhelming support the game has received.
