after multiple valheim teases showing new Mistlands content over time, developer Iron Gate Studio has finally brought Mistlands to the game’s test servers for players to try out. Iron Gate announced this week the addition of Mistlands content in an update aimed at resolving necessary balance changes and bug fixes by allowing players to preview content before its official release. Along with that update came two different sets of patch notes: one for those who just want the highlights, and one for those who want to know everything there is to know about the update and aren’t afraid of spoilers.
Like those who have been around valheim and your test servers will know, things may not always work as expected there, but even if something breaks, this is at least a chance to test Mistlands. Iron Gate also warned players that in some cases it may be easier to start over if you want to try out Mistlands rather than continue in a world where you’ve already done a lot. As is the case with previous previews, modifications are also not recommended as this is unsupported new content.
“One important thing to note is that the Mistlands biome will only spawn in areas you haven’t discovered yet,” Iron Gate said of the Mistlands content. “So, if you’ve explored much of your world, you’d better start a new one so you can travel to the Mistlands. As usual, mods will most likely also cause the game to fail to start, as they are only compatible with the Live version of the game. If you have mods, you will need to remove them or wait for the mod to update before you can play.”
The abbreviated patch notes can be found below to protect people from spoilers. If you want to see the complete summary, you have I have that here.
