The vampire survival game V Rising is coming soon to the PlayStation 5. It has also been confirmed that a long requested feature will finally make its way to the original PC version.
V Rising, made by Swedish developer Stunlock Studios, quickly became a hit after it was launched as an early access PC title in May 2022. The Unity-based RPG and castle builder put a unique spin on the open-world survival experience by having players take on the role of magic-wielding vampires, a distinction that helped V Rising set itself apart from other similar games. As of January 2023, V Rising has sold an estimated three million copies, and now the game has the opportunity to win over a completely new audience.
V Rising: Every Weapon, Ranked
Although players will have a variety of preferences regarding the weaponry they use, some styles have risen to the top and others are being abandoned.
A gameplay trailer shown at 2024’s first PlayStation State of Play revealed that a PS5 port of V Rising is set to be released in 2024. This launch will mark the console debut of V Rising, which is considered to be one of the best vampire games of all time. PC players received some good news, too, as it was revealed that V Rising will finally receive official controller support.
When Is V Rising Coming to PS5?
The V Rising Twitter account confirmed that the Windows version of the game will get the sought after feature. Despite being out for nearly two years, V Rising still has no official support for controllers on PC. Players, however, have reported that the game can still be enjoyed with a few caveats on handheld systems like Valve’s popular Steam Deck or the much more powerful Asus ROG Ally.
Stunlock Studios previously mentioned that it wanted V Rising‘s next major update to be the game’s full release. This 1.0 build, which is planned to be released in the second quarter of 2024, will not mark the end of V Rising‘s development, Stunlock Studios assured fans. The company released V Rising‘s first major update, Secrets of Gloomrot, last May, adding a lot of new content like an Ancestral Forge workstation that allowed players to craft legendary vampire weapons in V Rising.
Aside from revealing the PS5 port of V Rising, Sony’s most recent State of Play showed off a number of interesting projects, such as the new virtual reality game set in the post-apocalyptic world of Metro. State of Play 2024 also dropped a second trailer for Death Stranding 2: On the Beach that revealed a lot of details regarding the upcoming title being worked on by renowned Japanese game designer Hideo Kojima.
In Stunlock Studios’ V Rising, players take on the role of a vampire rising from his slumber. Survival is key as players explore V Rising’s open world where they can discover villages, craft items, combat fantastical creatures and bandits, and find other secrets to aid them on their journey.
