Valheim: World of Warcraft Stomwind Harbor recreated, incredible achievement


Valheim players are using this survival as a creative sandbox and are recreating famous locations from other games week after week. Now, we propose what the user ericxsg made and then shared on Reddit. We speak, as you can see below, of Stormwind Harbor, a well-known location of World of Warcraft. The result is truly incredible.

The user has shared four images of his version of Stormwind Harbor from World of Warcraft that allow us to see what was created in Valheim from multiple angles. There are the various docks, the harbor fortress that overlooks the area, the stairs and ramps all connected and even the ships waiting to set sail.

This was possible by taking advantage of the game's debug mode which allows you to work with infinite resources like the creative mode of Minecraft. This is a great way to get to work on works of this type in Valheim.

What we have done, we repeat, is remarkable and we are sure it required many hours of dedication and comparison with the original area to make sure everything was as similar as possible. The only limits are those imposed by the Valheim game engine: the creator explains that during creation the game traveled between 20 and 25 FPS, compared to the normal 90 FPS that it manages to reach when playing normally in the forests and other settings of the survival game.

This is also not the first time that a player from Valheim recreates a known place: we have already shown you, for example, Riverwood from Skyrim.


Steam sensation Valheim sold 5 million copies in one month

Breakout early access sensation Valheim, the Nordic-themed survival title taking the gaming world by storm, has sold more than 5 million copies since it launched on Steam on February 2nd, developer Iron Gate Studio announced on Wednesday. At a retail price of $19.99, that’s roughly $100 million in revenue before accounting for Valve’s cut and other expenses.


The Swedish studio developed the game with a team of just five people and released on Steam’s Early Access platform in February, battling its way to the top five most played games on Steam with more than 500,000 concurrent players at one point last month. (It’s currently sitting at No. 4 on the Steam charts, behind only Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.)

The closest analog to Valheim’s success is PUBG, which holds the record of highest concurrent player count on Steam at more than 3.2 million. Like PUBG, which arguably pushed the battle royale genre into the mainstream with its then-unprecedented 100-player take on competitive survival shooters, Valheim is combining the crafting and survival sim mechanics from popular games like Minecraft and Rust and giving them new life.

“Valheim continues to attract critical and player acclaim, with over 115,000 positive user reviews on Steam,” Iron Gate and its publisher, Coffee Stain Publishing, write in a press release. “It has also been climbing the ranks of the 250 top reviewed games of all time on the platform, now sitting at number 39. On Twitch, Valheim has maintained a steady stream of viewers, and fans have now spent more than 35M hours watching Valheim gameplay, and over 16,266 years playing.”
