The new biome of Valheim is called Ashland - Here is all we know as of now
In the recently published Valheim developer blog, Iron Gate Studio, the developer behind the game revealed information about the upcoming biome of Valheim. This new biome is called Ashland, and according to the blog, it will be a volcanic land of the dead.
The blog states that the team at Iron Gate has begun pre-production of this new biome. And, as a part of this, they have created some concept art, and are now trying to work out the main feel they want this new biome to have. It will be much different, as Ashalnds will be a large chunk of land that is situated in the south part of the map.
Iron Gate Studio wants to do things very differently this time, so they will be a lot more open now. Previously, with Mistlands biome, the team was quite secretive as they wanted the players to discover the new biome for themselves when it was added to the game. However, that reduced the transparency significantly. That is why, this time they will be a lot more open with the development of the game, and show the fans and followers the progress and process that they will be following.
As a part of this new approach, the developer blog also revealed some of the concept art that the team has made so far.
When is Valheim Ashlands update coming out?
As of now, no dates, or anything along those lines have been officially unveiled by the developers. However, it will be a good chunk of time before we get to see it. It is in the very early stages of development now, and the team is still working on the concepts of this new biome.
On the bright side, there will be some new and fun content for the players to enjoy in this long gap. This includes the Xbox release, new difficulty settings, also a new something that they are referring to as “Hildir’s Quest”. Also, there will be some changes to the clothing of the characters.
Talking of Hildir’s Quest, the developer also added that there would be new fun things with it such as a new NPC, which is Hildir herself, and also a new way with which the players can re-style their existing character’s hair. This Hildir’s Quest would not be taking away any significant amount of time from the development of Ashlands.
After Mistlands, Iron Gate Studios has finally revealed details about the upcoming biome, which is going to be called Ashlands. And, they have also revealed some of the concept art for this new biome.
