Valheim update brings new armour and something that “stirs in the swamps”


There’s something stirring in the swamps of Valheim. The crew at developer Iron Gate has teased a new presence that’s simply made its technique to the Viking game’s murky marshes as a part of its newest update – and there are another bits and items becoming a member of no matter this “something” is. Some potential (minor) spoilers about what’s new observe, of us.

“Something stirs in the swamps”, the 0.205.5 patch notes tease – and that’s nearly all we all know. The November dev weblog goes a weeny bit additional to elucidate the which means of this addition, noting: “We have heard something strange is stirring in the swamps, and brave Vikings who dare to investigate will be rewarded with materials to craft something brand-new.” Tucked away in the weblog as a spoiler is a shot of a powerful – and fairly intimidating – new armour set that you may trend, which we’ve included a picture of under.

Elsewhere in the patch are numerous helpful bug fixes, throughout gameplay, audio, and another areas of the game. Monsters will now get up if hit with ranged assaults, for instance (as you’d count on of a slumbering beastie pelted with an arrow), and there are some music fixes in the combine, too.

As for what’s on the method past this patch, the devs say they’ve bought their course set for the upcoming Mistlands update – something developing as a part of the Valheim updates roadmap. “Last time we showed you a first glimpse of what the terrain texture will look like, and quite a lot has happened since then,” Iron Gate says. “The landscape is starting to take shape and the mist itself has begun to roll in, but what hides there still remains unknown…”

There’s a peek under, however these are nonetheless in improvement – so may not seem similar to this after they hit the stay game – and aren’t developing simply but. But, they certain are something – have a look:
