Valheim is a procedurally generated world in which players slip into the skin of a Viking. Now it's time to prove your worth to the gods. In order to achieve this goal, bases and houses are built, weapons and armor are produced and food is collected. With the help of block and dodge functions, the dangers of powerful opponents of Norse mythology can be fended off. The many different options and tasks ensure that there is always plenty to do. Players can also craft items. These include better weapons and even safer armor. Food and drinking mead make the Vikings even stronger and should be helpful in the numerous battles. In addition, the battles against ancient and vengeful boss opponents have to be fought, whereby there are trophies to be won by defeating the difficult opponents. This, in turn, can be used to build new and more powerful items, so that players gradually become stronger and stronger, so that they get back the favor of the gods.
