Gripping survival game Valheim is finally coming to consoles and players looking something new to play will find an addictive experience with Iron Gate’s procedurally generated purgatory – this game throws players into the realm before Valhalla, the ultimate resting place in Norse mythology. If you’re looking forward to playing Valheim, you’re going to want to know if Valheim is coming to PS5 and PS4 – and we have the answer for you, right here.

In Valheim, up to 10 players can explore a world with multiple biomes, multiple monsters, and more than enough crafting to go around. It may be developed by a small team, but its’ stunning visuals have won over fans and its’ gameplay is more than addictive.

The announcement that Valheim was getting a console launch was made during Microsoft’s Extended Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase on June 14.

It was revealed that the game would be coming to PC Game Pass in “Fall 2022” and Xbox Game Pass in “early spring 2023”, but what about PlayStation players?
