This is what people are saying about V Rising so far :
PC Gamer: “V Rising kept me playing all night … I’ve only played solo so far, but I’ve got a co-op date coming up and can’t wait to drain the world dry with a bud in tow.”
Rock Paper Shotgun: “V Rising really impressed, turning us from skeptics to obsessed in next to no time.”
Dexerto.com: “Combat is fluid and watching your influence (and castle) grow is incredibly satisfying.”
NME: “V Rising‘s toothy twist on Valheim brings enough fun to recommend in its own right.”
In V Rising, you need to survive as a newly awakened vampire in a world ruled by humans and rise to become the next Dracula. Feed on blood to gain new powers, hide from the scorching sun, and engage in real-time PvE and PvP combat set in a dark fantasy realm. Raise your castle and invite friends to join as you explore a vast open world, pillage villages, skirmish with bandits, and delve into the lairs of supernatural beasts. Attack other player’s castles, or become a diplomat in a game of blood, power, and betrayal.
