Playing on a V Rising server, you find yourself playing a Vampire trying to survive in a hostile world full of dangers while building your castle and an army of loyal servants to create your own vampire empire.
The game presents its beautifully crafted world in an isometric way, giving a 3rd person view of your character, your enemies and the surroundings, with your character having to drink blood to gain strength, but also avoid sunlight and the many, many humans and monsters ready to kill you on sight.
It’s a vast, open-world that you can play completely solo or use a V Rising server where you can join forces with other vampire players, or fight it out to see who leads the ultimate vampire empire. Whatever playstyle you choose, a V Rising server game offers the smooth gameplay and robust connection that makes it so much fun to use.
A V Rising server game twists the narrative completely. Most adventure games put you in a world as a human fighting against the odds with all the monsters, but this time, you are the monster!
The game begins as you awake from centuries of slumber, weak and with all your resources long gone and forgotten.
You must hunt for blood to regain your strength, but at the same time, remember that sunlight will turn you to ashes, and holy warriors are always out to get you. You do play the monster, but the game manages to make you feel like the struggling victim in these first few play sessions.
It’s great fun and also hugely interesting to experience something completely different. Games don’t throw these kinds of curveballs that often these days.
After that initial beginning, struggling to survive as a weekend vampire, you must gradually build your strength by feeding on blood, exploring the lands to gather resources and discovering new skills to rebuild your castle that will become home to your empire.
The castle allows you to store loot, and is where you can assemble your army of vampires you turn along the way. This is where your personal style comes in too, with everything completely customizable, so you can create the vampire castle that matches your vampire’s playstyle too.
That really makes the character your own, gets you invested and makes the game really engaging, with everything from your castle and character’s look to how they fight, even how they approach the game itself all your choice.
Do you join V Rising Server to join with others and build a vast empire, or maybe you prefer to take power rather than share it. The choice is always yours.
Taking the fight to the world
When playing on a V Rising server or a solo game, combat is through precise WASD controls and cursor-based aiming. No click to move with this game, it's all about your skills on the keyboard. Whether it’s a perfectly aimed unholy spell or dodging an attack, the outcome is all you, every time.
That makes it fast-paced, exciting and a lot of fun when you finally take down some of the bigger enemies. It’s a real sense of achievement that point-and-click magic games never really give you.
Build your vampire
But perhaps the best bit about the combat is the flexibility. As you explore the world you will find new skills, spells and weapons along the way. You can combine these to create endless new ways to fight, and it is this flexibility that really brings the game to life.
Whatever fighting style you prefer, you can build your vampire to your liking. This wide variety of vampires makes playing on a V Rising server so much fun. You may be playing with or against other player vampires, but they won’t look or fight anything like your character.
Take on monsters, conquer villages and drink blood to grow stronger, building a vampire that fits how you want to play, so it really is your character.
Playing on a V Rising Server
While the game has so much to offer in single-player mode (and is a great way to learn the game and explore the options you have for fighting styles) the game really comes alive when you add other players on a V Rising server.
Once you join or host a multiplayer V Rising server, you will never look back. Whether joining with others or taking on everyone in a battle to the death, the game has a whole new dimension. With such a variety in how a vampire can play and look, characters shine through and the challenge is always there. After all, vampires can be your ally today, but your greatest enemy tomorrow.
