The survival game V Rising is available on PS5 from today, after it launched as an insider tip on Steam 2 years ago

Players can now play the survival hit V Rising on PS5. The full version was released on Steam about a month ago and is very popular there.

What kind of game is this? In V Rising you play a vampire who has lost his power and must rebuild his empire. To do this, you must collect resources such as wood and stones, as is classic in the survival genre – but also blood from animals, people and powerful bosses. The twist of the game: As a creature of the night, you are the danger.

The game places a great deal of emphasis on the action-packed combat system for which the developers at Stunlock Studios are known with titles such as Battlerite or Bloodline Champions.

In addition to the typical features such as base building and exploration, V Rising also offers an RPG component. With weapons and skills, you can choose your own play style and also play as a tank or healer in co-op.

The game can be played either alone or with friends in co-op on your own servers. There are also official servers for multiple players. Some of these are designed for PvP and offer full loot, so even hardcore players get their money’s worth.
