V Rising sells 500K copies, crosses 100K concurrent players, keeps climbing Steam charts

What a bloody good success.
This article is over 2 years old and may contain outdated information

Vampire survival game V Rising continues to be an early success for developer Stunlock Studios — emphasis on the “early” part, since the game is only in its early access form on Steam at the moment. Fully finished or not, it’s hitting big milestones just days after going on sale.

First, V Rising cracked the Steam top 10 most-played list just one day after launch on May 17. It barely poked its way onto the list with the #10 spot then, but here we are two days later, and it’s climbed to #7 (charted by SteamDB) as of the time of this writing. Not only that, but the game has now passed 100,000 concurrent players, up from about 70,000 when it first made the top 10.

This climb goes hand-in-hand with the game’s sales numbers. V Rising, which costs $19.99 USD / £15.49 on Steam, has sold half a million copies in just four days. “It’s official,” reads the celebratory tweet. “500,000 vampires out there have stepped foot into Vardoran! Thank you all for joining us on this journey!”

If you’re looking to enter Vardoran yourself, there’s a lot you should know before biting into V Rising. First up, yes, you can play the game solo if you want, but playing with friends is always more fun. The game is all about vampires, so you’ll need to know how blood works, and we have another guide for all the different types.

There are less obvious aspects of the game you’ll want to prepare for as well. Given its survival nature, crafting is a key component. We can show you how to get cloth, how to get leather, where to find sulphur ore, and more. Finally, the vampires in V Rising are apparently seafood fans, so you’ll want to find all the fishing spots too.
