V Rising is an open-world vampire survival game where you awaken as a weakened vampire from centuries of slumber and survive a world full of peril.

Rise from your grave after centuries-long sleep, thirsty for blood and hungry to regain your former glory. Play

As a vampire, you need to hunt for blood in nearby settlements to regain your strength and quench your thirst. Build and customize your castle, invite friends to join your clan, and convert humans to vampires to grow your empire. Engage in real-time combat and compete for world domination with PvP and PvE challenges.

Make allies online, fend off holy soldiers, and wage war against other players in a world of conflict.

Claim your throne and live the fantasy of becoming the next Dracula!

Swedish game developer Stunlock Studios has announced that the PlayStation 5 version of V Rising will be commencing pre-orders from today ahead of its launch on June 11th.
