One month has passed since the vampire-themed, open-world survival title V Rising entered Early Access on Steam. Since its launch, V Rising has passed 1 million copies sold on the PC gaming platform, indicating the community’s warm reception of the title. Now, developer and publisher Stunlock Studios has released a patch that brings in new features, fixes, and game-balancing changes in the latest V Rising update.
Since its Early Access release, the development team of V Rising has been steadfast in updating the game, ensuring the best experience for the player base. Notable improvements include fixing game crashes, server issues, and adding the game feature of being able to play V Rising offline. With a steady, almost weekly, stream of patch notes and updates from Stunlock Studios, the community likely feels reassured that the devs have no intention of leaving the title unattended for too long.
According to Stunlock Studios, the game’s official patch 0.5.42050 adds a few new features to V Rising’s build mode. The patch notes indicate that players can now dismantle floors and borders without having to remove connected castle walls or pillars, as long as the walls or pillars still remain connected to a floor or border. This feature should be quite convenient for players who enjoy spending a lot of time fixing up or moving things around in their castle in V Rising.
In terms of fixes, most of the issues addressed involve game crashes, save file errors, and server connection issues. As for game-balancing changes, tweaks have been introduced for the different vampire skills that players can acquire in the game. The new patch also tweaked cooldowns and other statistics of the different weapons in V Rising.
V Rising’s patch 0.5.42050 also introduces new languages, adding Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, and Turkish localization to the game. The other languages already available in V Rising – Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish – have also been updated to be more accurate.
Stunlock Studios seems to take feedback and critique from the community very seriously. The patch notes indicate a link where players can report any issues they encounter while they are playing the game. Given that V Rising is still in Early Access with no official full launch date announced yet, there are bound to be some issues. Listening to actual players while developing the title is likely a good way to ensure a loyal fanbase and community for the open-world survival game.
V Rising is available in Early Access on PC.
