Happy Sunday and welcome back for a new instalment of the Weekly News Roundup! This has been an unexpectedly exciting week as far as gaming news has gone, so let’s jump right into covering all of it now!
Early Access Review
“Valheim’s story is short and sweet and leaves the rest up to you to forge your own story. The gameplay is much more akin to an RPG than it is a survival craft title, but it plays better that way. The graphics of the game are stylish and well made to fit the theme of the title.
The music and audio are masterfully crafted and everything fits into place. I would love to give this game a perfect score, but as an early access game it’s not perfect just yet, but it will be soon.” – Matt Scriver. Be sure to check out his full early access review of Valheim here!
