1 million downloads within the first week, less than 5 days later and they hit 2 million downloads and now just five weeks later that have 5 million downloads.

In today’s episode Damian Reed talks about Valheim, what makes it a great game and how private game servers have been an integral part of it’s growth.

100% of the servers meeting the player demands are private game servers. 

The beauty of deciding to solely go with private game servers means that the number of servers will always meet the player demands. The more players who want to play Valheim, the more servers will be rented and eventually when the play counts start to come down the number of servers rented by players will also decrease.

Valheim is still in its infancy and will continue to be developed and improved and powered by private game servers – Valheim is going to be around for a very long time.

The series can be followed here (of course) and on both our LinedIn page and YouTube channel.
