It’s easy to forget that Valheim is in Early Access given that it’s already so impressively polished. In a short amount of time since launch, the game has amassed an enormous, thriving community of players who adore its engaging survival mechanics and immense scale. The Valheim mods scene, too, is off to a great start. In this article, we’re going to go look at the best Valheim mods that have been released so far.
Thanks to the work of talented modders over at NexusMods, there are a whole bunch of excellent Valheim mods that help make the game even better. So, let’s jump in!
Do note that you’ll need to download and install a program called Vortex before mods will work. Don’t worry, it’s very simple! Check out the instructions here.
Finally, it’s worth keeping in mind that some of these mods may clash with each other and that Valheim is an Early Access game that may render some of these mods incompatible at some point in the future. Make sure you read the “Posts” section of each mod page to check their status.
