The developers of the popular game Valheim have announced new features that will be added to the game. Among them are customizable difficulty modifiers and a creative mode. The difficulty modifiers will allow players to adjust various aspects of the game, such as enemy health, damage, and AI behavior, to create a personalized challenge. This will enable players to tailor the game to their preferred level of difficulty, making it more accessible for beginners or more challenging for veterans. The creative mode will allow players to build structures without the constraints of resource gathering or survival mechanics.

They have stated they want to continue adding new content to the game to keep players engaged and interested. Additionally, they are looking into adding more multiplayer options to the game to make it easier for players to connect and play together.
