Valheim System Requirements

The sandbox viking 'em-up on Steam is pretty popular right now. But how is your PC going to handle a few Nordic raids?

Last Updated on

Valheim came from nowhere back in February 2021 but with thousands of overwhelmingly popular reviews on Steam it seems only right that we should give you a little PC Guidance on whether your current PC is good enough to get into the action.

The new Valheim expansion, Hearth and Home, is also now with us and while it doesn’t;t up the system requirements it does bring a whole host of exciting new features and improvements, so if you have drifted away from Valheim in the last few months, it is definitely worth checking it out once more.

So? Can you run Valheim?
