Xbox Version of Valheim Targeting March 2023 Release Date
According to Embracer Group, Valheim’s long-awaited Xbox version will be released in March 2023 and it will be on Xbox Game Pass on day one.
The news comes by Embracer Group’s Q3 FY 22/23 earnings report, in which it says, “Valheim, developed by Iron Gate and published by Coffee Stain, is planned for release on Xbox Game Pass in March.”
While we don’t have an exact date, fans won’t have too long to wait until they can jump into the Norse mythology survival game on a new platform. Oh, and it will feature full cross-play with the Microsoft Store and Steam versions of Valheim.
Valheim was announced to be coming to Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Xbox Game Pass during June 2022’s Xbox Showcase Extended presentation, where it was also confirmed to be arriving on PC Game Pass.
In our Valheim Early Access review back in February 2021, we said it “is already a paragon of the survival crafting genre, with excellent art and music highlighting a world that generates endless exciting stories from only a few simple ingredients.”
