Become a Powerful Vampire in 'V Rising' for Steam

Do it like the vampires do, complete with online co-op.

Folks have always wondered what it's like to be a vampire, and thanks to the magic of video games, it's now possible to find out. Stunlock Studios' V Rising launched on Steam this week, and it allows players to become a dangerous vampire lord. The game features open world gameplay and the ability to play cooperatively in PvE or competitively in PvP. It also has some Castlevania DLC which is pretty rad.

In V Rising, players will customize their own vampire and then proceed to build a base and grow in power. Defeating bosses will allow access to new resources, and players will even battle the most famous vampire, Dracula, when all is said and done.

Official description:

Survive as a newly awakened vampire in a world ruled by humans and rise to become the next Dracula. Feed on blood to gain new powers, hide from the scorching sun, and engage in real-time PvE and PvP combat set in a dark fantasy realm. Raise your castle and invite friends to join as you explore a vast open world, pillage villages, skirmish with bandits, and delve into the lairs of supernatural beasts. Attack other player’s castles, or become a diplomat in a game of blood, power, and betrayal.
