The Norse mythology game Valheim is coming to Xbox Game Pass–this much was confirmed back in 2022. But now, Embracer Group has confirmed it’ll arrive next month.
As part of Embracer’s latest earnings briefing, the company said developer Iron Gate’s popular fantasy game will come to Game Pass in March. During IGN’s Fan Fest 2023 event, Iron Gate confirmed that Valheim will launch on March 14 for Xbox Game Pass.
As announced previously, the Xbox and Microsoft Store versions of the game will have full cross-play compatibility with the Steam version.
Valheim made a splash when it first released in February 2021, reaching millions of players on PC. Iron Gate has not announced plans to bring Valheim to PlayStation 5 or Nintendo Switch, however.
Valheim is one of the hundreds of games from Embracer in the works. As of today, Embracer has 224 games in development. These include 31 AAA games, of which 19 will be launched before 2026.
Embracer also owns the rights to The Lord of the Rings and has confirmed it will launch five new Lord of the Rings games in the next two years. The company was also in the news recently after it took $1 billion from Saudi Arabia.
