The time has come to rise from your crypts and descend onto Vardoran. At Stunlock Studios, we’re proud to be able to show the fruits of our labors after our longest development cycle, and by far our most ambitious project to date.
Greetings and dark tidings, vampires!
With the V Rising Early Access launch, we’ll be giving players two additional ways to support the game in the form of cosmetic DLC packs! We thought the best approach to take with cosmetics in V Rising is to offer options to take your vampire swagger to the next level.
It’s time for us to announce the winners of our Horror Poster Art Contest! Over the course of these past weeks, we’ve received a lot of really great entries, and we’re eager to share our favorites with you today! The jury consists of Jeremy Bearson (Community Manager), Johan Ilves (Marketing Director), and Ruth Dominguez (Discord Queen & Business Controller), with support from Johan Wahlbäck (Art Director) and Johan Aronson (Senior Concept Artist) to pick the grand winners and runner ups. We’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who submitted an entry. It wasn’t easy to narrow down our top picks!
We’re finally starting the V Rising Closed Beta and are planning three test sessions before Early Access. Our first test begins March 23 and focuses on the new player experience! We’ll be shaking the dust off of a few thousand untouched coffins and introducing them to the world of Vardoran for the first time, so everyone begins on a level playing field. Those who haven’t had the opportunity to test the game just yet should start checking your emails soon, as we’ll be sending keys out later today!
We’re excited to announce we’re partnering up with HP OMEN for our first ever V Rising art contest! We want you to interpret V Rising and its gothic world by creating a retro-style horror poster for the game for this contest. The inspiration should come from either old horror movie posters (any decade from the 1920s to the 1990s) or retro horror game cover art.
