Swedish game developer Stunlock Studios has recently announced that its anticipated open-world fantasy vampire survival game, V Rising, has been released onto Steam Early Access for $19.99 / €19.99. Traverse the gothic world of Vardoran solo or co-op on official servers with up to 40 players, fight mythical monsters and brutish bandits, and build your magnificent castle as you hunt for fresh blood to survive.
The developer has released an Early Access Launch Trailer to commemorate the occasion.
“The day is finally here, our vampires have been revealed in the moonlight and it’s up to the players to discover their secrets,” said Johan Ilves, Marketing Director at Stunlock Studios.
“With a lot of blood, sweat, and tears (but mostly blood), we have created the foundations for a truly unique vampire gameplay experience. This Early Access campaign will allow us to fine-tune V Rising and take the final steps in creating a genre-defining gem.”
About V Rising
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. Rase 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 players’ castles, or become a diplomat in a game of blood, power, and betrayal.
Approximately how long will V Rising be in Early Access?
According to the developer, “Our focus is to ensure the best experience possible. It is difficult to say precisely how long it will take to process player feedback and further develop the game accordingly. That said, our goal is to finalize the game and leave Early Access within 12 months.”
