Is Valheim Coming To PS5 Or Switch?
Will the massively popular Valheim eventually come to more consoles?
Valheim has already been a breakout success on PC, and the survival-action game is also now available on Xbox consoles. However, the game isn't currently available on PlayStation platforms or Nintendo Switch. Will it stay that way, or could Valheim come to PS4, PS5, and Switch eventually? Here's what we know right now.
Valheim released for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S--including via Game Pass--on March 14, 2023. These versions of the game support cross-play with the PC version, and the games will continue to receive the same updates to ensure compatibility between versions.
If you're hungry to play Valheim but don't own a PC or Xbox, it looks like you'll have to continue to wait. Despite the game being available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S now, versions fo PlayStation and Nintendo platforms have not been announced.
