Darkness Sweeps Steam Early Access With V Rising Launch

Build, hunt, and rise as vampires descend upon Vardora

The time to rise from the crypts and descend onto Vardoran is now, as Stunlock Studios’ V Rising has officially launched on Steam Early Access.

The studio’s most ambitious project to date, players are invited to a gothic fantasy survival action experience that illustrates the struggles of being a vampire in an unforgiving world. Awakened as a weakened vampire after centuries of slumber, the need to hunt for blood, rebuild an empire, and rise up as a force to be reckoned with will drive players forward on this unholy quest.

A Gothic Open-World

Explore a vast world teeming with mythical horrors and danger. Travel through lush forests, open countryside, and dark caverns to discover valuable resources, meeting friends and foes alike along the way. Traverse the world with vampire comrades or hunt solo, with opportunities to pillage villages, raid bandits, and delve into the domains of supernatural beasts.

Fear the Light – Rule the Night

Stick to the shadows during the daytime, or the burning sunlight will turn any vampire to ashes. Roam the night and prey on unwitting victims in the darkness. As a vampire, there is an unquestionable need to quench the thirst for blood while planning strategies around the day and nighttime.

Raise Your Castle

Gather resources and discover ancient techniques to gain dark powers, and utilize newly acquired knowledge to build a castle where loot can be stored and an army of darkness can be raised. Personalize the domain, exhibit a unique vampiric style and make sure to craft coffins for servants and friends. The stronger the castle, the better it is at defending the riches within.

Compete or Cooperate

Travel alone or explore the world with friends, fighting side by side with other vampires will provide an advantage for those trying to conquer the greatest threats of Vardoran. Raid other players’ castles or play the diplomat in the game of blood, power, and betrayal.

Master the Vampire

Learn and master an arsenal of deadly weapons and unholy abilities. In V Rising, players can aim skill-shots and dodge projectiles using​ precise​​ ​WASD controls ​and cursor-based​ ​aiming – no click to move. Tailor the character to fit any play style by combining weapons with a variety of spells earned through vanquishing powerful foes. Master the skills and unleash wicked powers to be the last one standing.

V Rising is now available on Steam Early Access.
