V Rising gets Castlevania themed gear and more in new DLC

V Rising

Stunlock Studios has fully revealed the new V Rising DLC featuring content from the Castlevania franchise, via a new partnership with Konami.

The new “Legacy of Castlevania” content will see aspiring vampires in the survival ARPG battle Simon Belmont himself, with other content teased.

Here’s a rundown on the previously announced content, plus its full reveal gameplay trailer:

The mighty hero of the Belmont Clan, Simon Belmont, is here to challenge all of Vampire kind. Wielding his legendary Vampire Killer and an infamous arsenal of holy weaponry, no night stalker will be safe from his righteous crusade through Vardoran. Defeat him and unlock the secrets of a brand new weapon, the whip, adapting new combat abilities that embody the grace and precision of the deadly Vampire hunter!

All vampires will be able to face the Belmont heir to test their skills in battle, but you will also have additional opportunities to fully immerse yourself in the spirit of Castlevania. The Legacy of Castlevania Premium Pack cosmetic DLC will be available to purchase, allowing players to construct their own castles inspired by our adoration for the classic Castlevania aesthetic. Craft spellbinding castle decor, enjoy character customization options inspired by legendary Castlevania characters, and ride the new spooky skeletal mount. Set the tone with a symphony of Castlevania music in your castle, with two classic themes reimagined by V Rising composer Aleksandria Migova.

A release for the new DLC is set for May 8th, the same day the game hits full release on Windows (via Steam). A PS5 port is planned for later in 2024. Check out our thorough and final preview for the game!
