If you have a unique seed you’d like to share, let us know in the comments down below and we’ll add it to the list. Being a survival game, resources are incredibly important in Valheim. Your seed can drastically alter your early game experience, so choose wisely if you’re planning on using one. Some of the seeds on the above list make the game much easier by starting you off in gentle biomes with plenty of wild animals and plants, while others start you off in harsher climates that will make surviving a bit more difficult.

Also, Valheim is currently in early access and will be regularly receiving updates in the coming months, so some of these seeds may no longer work once the game is updated to a later version. This is highly unlikely to happen unless significant changes are made to the way the game creates its procedurally generated worlds, but this is still something to keep in mind if you’re reading this list after Valheim has been out for a long time.

Valheim is available now on PC. The game is currently in Steam Early Access and will remain in early access for at least one year. For more Valheim seeds, visit the Valheim Wiki.
