Fans have been waiting a while to get their hands on it, but today the new Valheim Hearth and Home update becomes playable on Steam.

The patch makes some major changes to the game, which remains in early access and beta.

As the name implies, this week’s major update focuses on new mechanics, furniture, building pieces, food, weapons, optimizations and more that can be found in the residence.

This includes new building pieces and furniture added to the game, ranging from sturdy shingle roofs to a mighty stone throne.

Valheim fans will also find that they can now share map data with other Vikings in your world, find seeds to plant more types of trees, and eventually destroy unwanted items with the new destroyer.

The good news is that there are also plenty of bug fixes and minor background tweaks that fans will want to know more about.

And these can all be found in the recent Valheim patch notes for Steam, which can be found below:
