Valheim’s Mountain Update Released With Pause And Controller Support In Single Player

Iron Gate has released the Mountains update for Valheim which introduces the cave into the game.

Now you can finally explore the frozen caves where the brothers of the fenrings reside. This update also comes with a new event involving one of the new creatures.

In this patch, the game has also been optimized for the Steam Deck. It also includes full controller support for PCs and a single-player pause feature.

The developers note that the update forces a new location of the game worlds, which will cause slightly longer load times the first time you open them – and it can move a bit bit of boss position. Frost Caves will also only appear in previously unexplored areas.

Iron Gate is also working on the Mistlands update and has posted some new concept art on the game’s Steam page.

You can check out the patch notes below.
