Today, May 8th, marks the long-awaited launch of V Rising, the popular Vampire Action RPG Survival game from Stunlock Studios. Step into the shoes of a newly awakened vampire, construct your own castle, and explore a gothic open world teeming with danger. Hunt for blood alone or unite with a clan, battling alongside fellow vampires online. Returning players can sink their fangs into a wealth of new content, while newcomers can dive straight into the complete adventure with seven regions to explore and 57 bosses to best. The 1.0 update introduces the Ruins of Mortium, a new wintry area once thriving with vampire civilization, now haunted by the remnants of Dracula’s followers. Face the ancient tyrant Dracula himself in a showdown of epic proportions as you delve into the depths of Mortium and rule the night.

Prepare to challenge the legendary vampire hunter Simon Belmont and unlock the whip weapon. As well as the free Castlevania content releasing today, vampire enthusiasts will be able to purchase the Legacy of Castlevania Premium Pack cosmetic DLC for 19.99 EUR/USD, allowing players to construct their own castles inspired by Castlevania’s classic gothic aesthetic. The pack also contains further additions,  customizations, and Castlevania music unlocks.
