Valheim, an open-world viking survival game on Steam Early Access, is doing well. Really, really well. After launching on February 2, it hit a million sales in just eight days, before doubling that on Feb. 15. As of Feb. 25, Valheim has now sold more than 4 million copies, and it doesn’t look like letting up any time soon.

Hitting 4 million players in less than a month is pretty much unheard of. As PC Gamer explains, previous viral hits like Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds took months to hit these kinds of sales figures. Even Minecraft — once an obscure indie title and now a worldwide phenomenon — didn’t have this kind of initial sales velocity.
