Vampire survival game V Rising stays in early entry, and is celebrating its first anniversary with the Gloomrot enlargement: Through which developer Stunlock Studios has mainly stated sod it, let’s add Frankenstein’s monster. The studio has now launched a trailer for the enlargement, which arrives on Could 17, however the large takeaway for me is simply how superior the brand new castles look.

The Gloomrot enlargement provides a ton of recent stuff to the game, however what has followers most excited is the multi-level constructing. An enormous a part of V Rising’s vampire fantasy is constructing your personal gothic crib from which to terrorise the world, replete with ornate furnishings and all of the Dracula trappings one might want for. There was a little bit of a difficulty although: The castles might solely have one flooring, which led gamers to the amusing resolution of constructing their den on slopes to present it the phantasm of top.

The trailer opens with some lengthy, lingering shots of a vampire traipsing by way of their new stately pile and… sure, that is going to make me re-install V Rising. The fortress interiors look unimaginable, the muted candlelight vibes are beautiful, and who does not wish to sit on a large throne sipping goblets of blood.

It goes on to spotlight the brand new electricity-based magic that Gloomrot provides, in addition to new bosses, areas, and a few type of superior horse that appears straight out of Tam O’ Shanter. Gloomrot’s Franken-lands are their very own new biome, wracked with electrical storms with gothic expertise rising above the land it pollutes, and provides new tools sorts, weapons, “extra V Blood Bosses, a brand new V Blood monitoring system, and extra enemy selection.”

The one minor bummer is that, in preparation for Gloomrot’s launch, Stunlock goes to shut V Rising’s official servers for 5 days: Beginning at 12 am UTC on Friday Could 12, and remaining down till Could 17. Do notice that player-run servers won’t be affected. When the official servers return, gamers should begin a brand new save to get pleasure from all of the Gloomrot goodness, although the studio goes to preserve a Steam department publicly accessible for anybody who desires to preserve taking part in with their previous saves.
