New Valheim Update is Amazing for Xbox Gamers
Valheim, the Viking-inspired sandbox survival game, took the gaming world by storm when it was released in 2021. Even though it was only in its Early Access phase and available exclusively on PC, it managed to sell millions of copies. Now, Valheim has expanded its player base by releasing a new update specifically for Xbox gamers.
Developed by Iron Gate Studio, Valheim is constantly adding features and performance improvements during its Early Access phase, which is expected to continue for a while before the 1.0 version is released. The latest patch for Xbox gamers focuses on enhancing the game’s stability and making it more similar to the PC version.
One of the most significant changes in the latest update is the improvement in save stability. Xbox players have been complaining about the lack of stability, fearing that their saves might be corrupted and that they will lose all their progress. The developers have addressed this issue by implementing several heightmap fixes and improving control input for the gamepad. As a result, players can now enjoy the game without having to worry about losing their progress.
However, this is not the first time that the Valheim team has tried to fix cloud-saving issues. The 0.215.2 Valheim update, which was released a few weeks ago, already had a big focus on minimizing the chances of saves being corrupted on Xbox, as well as resolving some other minor graphical glitches. While it is uncertain whether this issue will be fully resolved soon or if Xbox players will have to wait a little longer before the game is entirely on par with the PC version, the developers are actively working to enhance the Xbox gaming experience.
The update has been well-received by players, with many taking to social media to express their gratitude for the improvements. The Valheim community is excited about the future of the game and is looking forward to more updates and enhancements.
Valheim is currently available in Early Access for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. With its immersive world, engaging gameplay, and regular updates, Valheim is undoubtedly a game to keep an eye on.
