On May 8th, Stunlock Studios will officially release V Rising from Steam Early Access for PC, with a PlayStation 5 version anticipated later in the year. Initially available in 2022 in an early access format, this survival action RPG has captivated players with its enthralling game mechanics and gothic settings. The latest gameplay trailer offers a glimpse into the enriched features and challenges awaiting players upon launch.

In the game, players assume the role of a vampire struggling to exist in a human-dominated medieval fantasy realm. Players must cleverly utilize shadows or wait for nightfall to evade the lethal sunlight. As you establish and fortify a castle to act as your sanctuary, it is inevitable before hunters and other mystical adversaries discover your hideout and challenge your reign.

The full version to be released will introduce a range of upgrades, such as cargo travelers and enhanced world design. New difficulty levels cater to different player skills, adding depth to the gameplay. Additionally, players can anticipate an advanced new game region, the Ruins of Mortium, which culminates in a dramatic confrontation with the legendary Dracula. V Rising will also feature an exciting partnership with Castlevania, including a challenging boss fight against Simon Belmont.

The integration of these new elements promises to enhance both the depth and the breadth of the gaming experience, ensuring both newcomers and seasoned players have plenty to explore and conquer in this dark, vampiric world.
