Valheim is quite arguably the biggest game of 2021. It has recently crossed its 6 million sales mark, and for an indie game developed by 15 people, that is a massive achievement. What is even more impressive is how the game launched as an early access title and will be in that state for at least a year. The game is ridiculously polished and provides players with a worthwhile experience despite being in early access. Given how this is a game in development, and player feedback is important, constant updates are coming out. If you want to enable the Valheim console after the update 0.148.6, here is how you can do that.

We can easily see the title pass the 10 million mark this year, and that’s just during the early access period.
