V Rising: New record exploded for the survival game

V Rising: New record exploded for the survival game

V Rising broke new records: after celebrating 150,000 concurrent players a few days ago, it's time to celebrate again. But then, will the survival game surpass the success of its competitor, Valheim?

V Rising has been available since May 17 in early access on Steam, and since then the game has been all the rage and continues to break records! The indie game with bite is rising to the top of the charts around the world and imposing its success. Recently, V Rising celebrated its concurrent player record with 150,000 vampires connected at the same time on the game.

In the footsteps of the giant Valheim , the vampire game with survival/sandbox gameplay more than similar to the Iron Gate game continues its ascent and is celebrating a new event today.

The million!

Indeed, the survival game celebrates its 1 million sales worldwide, and therefore records a phenomenal start for the creation of Stunlock Studios! It would therefore seem that the game is in the footsteps of Valheim, the survival game around the theme of Norse mythology, which had recorded 3 million sales, 17 days after its release. There is therefore one week left for V Rising to prove itself and surpass its "competitor", released a year earlier.

Translation of the Tweet: 1,000,000 vampires have come out of their slumber! Thank you all for participating in this achievement!

Currently, V Rising remains the most played game on Steam , ahead of the giant Elden Ring which, a few months after its release, is losing its luster.

What appeals to V Rising players?

Without a doubt, its gameplay as well as its environment more than unique. First of all, the survival genre seems to fascinate in recent years, with games like Valheim or The Forest being big hits in the industry. But survival is better together and V Rising has perfectly exploited this penchant of players for survival in cooperation, which has the advantage of bringing people together... or sometimes creating conflicts.

Also, the vampire theme is very effective. If V Rising manages to stand out, it's primarily thanks to fairly daring mechanics, based on the handicaps of these creatures of the night: don't expect to be able to take the sun, if you stay exposed to it for more than 5 seconds , you will die. Not so immortal...

In short, the combo of epic fights and an overdeveloped crafting system gives a real video game nugget that players around the world never seem to get tired of. Who knows how the trend will develop in the coming weeks? In the meantime, the game's stats are constantly increasing and it is quite possible that V Rising will soon break all the records set by Valheim.

When Xbox beats Playstation in Japan

Would Sony lose its luster in its native country? For the first time in 8 years in Japan, the Playstation sold less well than its direct competitor, Microsoft's Xbox.
