Fixing Valheim incompatible version error

Valheim can be enjoyed solo or with friends and strangers through online multiplayer. One person hosts the world on their computer and becomes the host server, while other players can join that person.

Normally, Valheim’s multiplayer works pretty well with few hiccups, but occasionally you can encounter some errors, such as the “incompatible version” error.

The incompatible version error occurs if you try to join a Valheim server that is running a different version than your game. To fix this error, ensure that your copy of Valheim is updated and running the latest version of the game.

To check your Valheim version number, look in the bottom right corner of the main menu screen. Valheim should automatically update on its own as long as you are connected to the internet, as it’s handled by your platform of choice, like Steam.

You can force updates if there are any pending ones in the queue, if your platform is not automatically updating the game. In Steam, you can right-click Valheim in your library and set the update preferences to always update when possible.

You must also make sure that whoever is hosting the server is running the latest version of the game as well, whether it be your friend or a public server.

Additionally, if you are playing Valheim with mods installed, the server you are joining must have all the same exact mods updated. This is where most people encounter this error, as mods are always changing and must be maintained.
