Valheim’s long-awaited major update Hearth and Home is now available on PC. Along with adding new build pieces and furniture, new recipes, overhauled food mechanics and combat changes, it also seems to have a new threat. Check out the trailer below for a brief tease.
Hearth and Home features several features requested by fans including the ability to plant seeds for growing more trees, a new Obliterator that destroys unwanted items and sharing map data with other vikings using the Cartography Table. You can also name pets with the tamed Lox now having some purpose and there seems to be “something dark and mysterious that seems to spread across the plains…”
In terms of new items, there’s a Butcher Knife, Thunder Stone, Crystal Battleaxe, Silver Knife, Bone Tower Shield and Iron Buckler. The Oven is now used for baking pies and bread while some types of meat now require the Iron Cooking Station. Stay tuned for more details on subsequent patches and improvements to Hearth and Home in the coming weeks.
