For all would-be vampires chomping at the bit to get more information about Stunlock Studios’ V Rising, the end of October brings some good news. As part of the game’s Halloween celebrations, V Rising will be available to play for free starting from Oct. 28 to Nov. 1.
In addition, the spookiest month of the year will see a new content drop in the form of Halloween decorative items added to help players create the most haunted castle possible. The Haunted Nights Castle DLC pack contains a large assortment of items, from pumpkins to chandeliers, and is available to be claimed for free from Oct. 24 to Nov. 7.
For those seeking a more-challenging time in V Rising, the arrival of the new Mad Hunt server setting is exactly what the witch doctor ordered. Adding a new element of chaos to the traditional formula, the option will randomize key resources such as V Blood locations, spell unlocks, and technologies to add additional variety to the game experience.
As a counterbalance, specific technologies will still appear at certain points to prevent progression from getting frustrating. Beyond that, however, anything goes in this brand new way of enjoying V Rising this Halloween.
