Grab your axe and get ready for the Valheim release date on Xbox consoles as well as Game Pass!
Valheim Xbox Consoles and Game Pass Release Date
Back in February 2021, developer Iron Gate AB and publisher Coffee Stain Publishing unleashed Valheim into Steam Early Access but there has been no mention of a Valheim console or Game Pass release date. The game saw an incredible amount of players join in, pulling no punches as a brutal survival game purgatory inspired by Viking culture.

Now, the developers and Microsoft have announced the Valheim Xbox consoles release date window, and when it will release on Steam.

According to the announcement (view at the bottom of this article) Valheim will release on Game Pass for PC (via Microsoft Store) in Fall 2022.

Keep in mind that things might change during the development process, and this is just a release date window at the time of writing, with no exact date pinned down.

Console gamers, specifically those on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles will have to wait a little longer, with the Valheim release date window for Xbox Game Pass announced as "Early Spring 2023".

For those who don't know, Spring next year in the Northern Hemisphere begins on 20th March 2023 and ends on 20th June 2023.
