There were some great games that came out in 2020. It was a great year, and many of us were introduced to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, COD Warzone, Doom Eternal, Half-Life Alyx, Genshin Impact, and many more.
Of course, who can forget the infamous Cyberpunk 2077. Even though Cyberpunk didn’t surprise as much as everyone would have hoped, it seems like 2021 is shaping up to be a great year for gaming.
At the moment, the hottest commodity is no doubt, Valhalla. It was developed by a small indie developer team, and has broken Steam records left and right.
Valheim’s Steam Sales Past Five Million Players
Ever since its release, this game has done nothing but surprise everyone. No one could have expected that a game developed by only five people would be the most realistic Viking survival game out there.
After the first week, Valheim managed to pass a whopping one million sold, which is an no doubt a great achievement.
But because this game is unbelievably good, it has only gained more players, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping in growth. Now, Valheim has broken the five million sold mark.
The developers appear very humbled and ecstatic.

Iron Gate, Valheim’s developers are very determined to make this game even better than it actually is. One indication is the plan for 2021’s updates, which include four major ones.
Nevertheless, here is what they wanted to say about the game’s recent success: “We watch with pride and excitement, and struggle to find the words to express our gratitude to you, the community.” they humbly stated.
They also went on to talk about the next milestones that are planned for 2021, and that they can’t wait to show players what they have in store.
Overall, they seem like a great team of developers, which is to no surprise when looking at Valheim.
Nowadays, Valheim is ranked at the third spot in the Steam library for the most players at one time. Even though it has a lot of road to get to the most played game on Steam, the game doesn’t seem to stop in growth!
