The developers of Valheim have shared details about their exploration and survival game’s next updates. Two areas are being worked on. A biome called the Mistlands will be the larger of the forthcoming updates. The mountains area is also receiving terrain and texture improvements. Early concept art has been released for each. In keeping with the season, a new decorative crafting feature called Jack-O-Turnips is also being rolled out.

Those of you who follow Richard on Twitter might have noticed that he’s experimenting with the terrain and textures for the Mistlands, which will be our next big biome update! However, please keep in mind that this is not a final version and that the landscape will likely change quite a bit before we figure out just exactly what the Mistlands will look like. It’s also still too early to say what the implementation of the Mistlands will mean for your existing worlds, but we will keep you updated once we know more.

While the groundwork for the Mistlands is being done, some of us are having a look at smaller updates. A biome update takes quite a while to develop, and like we’ve mentioned before we also want to offer you some smaller updates before that. Currently, our dungeon master Erik is teaming up with the art department to work on something to make the Mountains a bit more interesting, especially for those of you who love to explore new places. There is no final version of what this will look like yet either, but we thought we’d show you some concept art to convey the general feeling.

We hope you haven’t missed that you’re now able to craft Jack-o-turnips in the game! The vikings didn’t exactly celebrate halloween, but it’s still nice to have something to brighten up the homestead when the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting darker… At least in our part of the world
