Valheim the very excellent Viking survival game that’s out on Early Access Steam. Even though the game is still in development there’s still a lot for you to see and do.

Valheim is a wonderful Norse place with an abundance of resources for you to live your best Viking life. And it would be perfect if you didn’t have all those dangerous creatures wandering around. So before you leave your encampment be sure to bring your best weapons.

There are several types of weapons you can craft in Valheim. With everything from daggers, axes, bows to sledgehammers. Each of these weapons you’ll find will be effective against different types of enemies. For example, blunt weapons, such as clubs, are great against skeletons.
