the surprise hit of the summer, Valheim
, has now surpassed 2 million copies sold. A milestone it surpassed in under two weeks.
As per this update from The Iron Gate Team
In just 13 days Valheim has been purchased by over two million Vikings, and this weekend we reached a new peak concurrent player milestone of 360,000!
Forget longboats, we have now blown a 700+ year old record by boasting the largest Viking population in all of human history. For reference, the previous peak in Viking numbers was set in 1300 AD and was approximately 500,000.
