Iron Gate Studio and Coffee Stain Publishing confirmed that the Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One versions of Valheim will finally launch on March 14. The early access Xbox Game Preview title will be included as part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription when it releases on consoles, as it is already available via the PC version of the service.
The announcement came as part of IGN’s 2023 Fan Fest event. In addition to a release date announcement, we also saw a gameplay trailer showing it running on Xbox Series X, which seemed on par with how the game runs on higher-end PCs. We also learned that Valheim will support full crossplay between PC and Xbox consoles when it finally launches. This release marks the first time Valheim will be available on console since the fantasy survival game rose to popularity in early 2021. For the time being, this also means that Valheim is an Xbox console exclusive.
The Xbox versions of Valheim were first announced during Microsoft’s Xbox Game Showcase Extended livestream in June 2022. Following that announcement, the game’s PC version was added to Xbox Game Pass in September 2022. Now, we know when exactly we can expect to start playing Valheim on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, with these ports being part of Xbox Game Pass from day one.
Valheim is available now on PC and will be released for Xbox One and Xbox Series X on March 14. It will also be available across all versions of Xbox Game Pass from that same date.
