‘Valhalla Hills’ updated with tons of fresh content


Daedalic Entertainment has announced a new update for their Viking city building game Valhalla Hills, which is currently in Steam Early Access. The game brings such roles as the toolmaker and the weaponsmith.

Basically, the toolmaker crafts tools for Viking workers. However, players must commission the tools, as the toolmaker won’t take any sort of initiative. In addition, The same goes for the weaponsmith, another new profession who created various weapons for the Vikings, including axes and swords.

Three new buildings have also been established, split from one catchall building that had been doing the combined work before the update. The new buildings include the Sawmill, the Quarry, and the Forester. Lumberjacks will focus on chopping trees and processing them, while masons will harvest stones.

Other updates include the ability to assign additional workers to construction sites while bakers need tools to bake food. A new, larger storage building as been added. Finally, military camps no longer consume leather.

Other notable updates include:

Toolmaker

Your Vikings grew tired of taking care of their own tools and weapons all the time. So there’s a new face around town: the toolmaker. He fulfills all your Vikings’ tool needs, but only commissioned pieces (this means you have to personally order tools). 
Since many jobs need proper tools, it’s very important for your settlement to hire a toolmaker. Get one as fast as you can! 

Weapon Smith

automatically. As soon as the portal is successfully activated, the match
