Let us have a look at the game engine used to develop the highest-selling survival game of all time on Steam, Valheim. This should come as a huge surprise for players who are curious about how this game was made!
Game Engine Used To Make Valheim
Yes, you read that right! The game engine used to create Valheim is Unity! The Viking survival epic was created using none other than the “free to start” and easy-to-use Unity. Isn’t that a surprise?
Well, because in the past, creators have used this engine to make some really awful, goofy-looking games. But for an engine that is free, the game Valheim looks really well done.
This is majorly owed to the fact that the quality of a game usually has more to do with the developers than the engine.
However, Unity’s graphics rendering pipelines have come a long way. You can make really nice-looking games in Unity nowadays (see HDRP).
People need to know that Unity is and always was a good engine, but it’s free to begin with, and easy to use, so people started using it to make unpolished games, and its reputation went down.
The UE4 engine is free to use, too but quite hard to learn, so more beginners go towards Unity. Unity uses C# rather than C++, which is many times more user-friendly at the expense of processing speed.
Another genuinely good-looking game that is made by Unity is Rust.
Valheim Gameplay Guide
The game Valheim is an open-world survival game. As fallen Vikings, players must fight enemies and build shelters. Valheim uses low-resolution stylized 3D graphics and has a combat system inspired by action games.
Players create their own Viking characters after starting by selecting a character class, such as warriors, rangers, or shamans. They can then create a world that is procedurally generated from a map seed.
Each world is split into several biomes, such as meadows, the Black Forest, swamps, mountains, plains, oceans, the Mistlands, the Deep North, and the Ashlands.
Each biome has its own unique enemy creatures, items, and bosses that change how difficult it is to survive there. Valheim operates on an in-game day and night cycle.
