If you’ve got an itch for a new level of horror and action in a video game, we’ve got you covered in this review. V Rising is one of the newest games that you should be looking towards.
By raising the stakes, V Rising makes for a video game experience where you’re not just a vampire with endless levels of strength. Instead, it comes with an online mode where your entire squad can come together and engage in a hunt. This element is a true elevation for vampire games because you can live the fantasy of hunting with a group.
Story and Setting
V Rising presents an interesting premise by being set in a world that allows you to express a wide array of freedoms. Rather than being locked to a simple structure, you get to interact with multiple features and a lively world. In fact, this might just be the first vampire game that allows players to craft their own castles. You also get to ride your horse and build a crew to ride with. Still, it’s important to remember that the daylight will burn you to a crisp if you’re unprepared.
The gothic elements in its open world are definitely worth seeing in-game. The developers did not relax on the amount of details included in the sprawling universe. Roaming around at night is a big highlight for this game as things take an interesting turn. The night time is perhaps the most ideal period for feeding, so you should structure your strategies around collecting resources and gaining new abilities at night.
There are weapons, skills and other resources that will help you defeat the intimidating creatures that roam and threaten your survival. Other threats include your fellow vampires and humans, so keeping track of them will do you a lot of favors. The primary controls involve your WASD keys and mouse cursor for aiming in a similar vein to Battlerite, the other game from the same developers at Stunlock Studios. It also shares a similarity with Hades thanks to the isometric camera angle. There are melee and ranged weapons at your disposal to give you a potent arsenal against any threats. However, skill and mastery are the most important traits you can have in this game.
Visuals and Graphics
In V Rising, the presentation is quite impressive with many of the textures depicted with a high quality. The characters in-game are also amazing with many of their costumes looking absolutely stunning under different lighting conditions.
While using your abilities, the effects and transitions are quite memorable with many of them providing a satisfying visual feedback upon channeling and impact. As you travel the world, hunt, scout and raid your way through encounters, there’s a lot of amazing things to see.
V Rising is a vampire game with a lot of heart. It acknowledges the conventional expectations of a vampire story, and adds a lot of depth to the gameplay which makes for a satisfying experience.
