Valheim 0.148.6 update patch notes

The Valheim 0.148.6 update patch notes have been released, with developer Iron Gate AB revealing what has been included in the brand new update. The PC survival game has had a number of tweaks and gameplay fixes implemented in its new patch, which provides unsubstantial but necessary changes.

The update includes various changes such as an increased chest inventory space, boss drops being able to float in water, and the drop rate for certain enemies being increased. It doesn’t include any major additions to the game, but rather tweaks the title as it continues to increase its player base on Steam.

Valheim has been a breakout success for Iron Gate AB, with many hailing it as one of the best survival games in modern times. While players are undoubtedly waiting for larger features to be added to the game, this is a nice stopgap that at least fixes some common player complaints.
