V Rising sold over 1.5 million copies, dev talks up future updates

V Rising

Developer Stunlock Studios announced V Rising sold over 1.5 million copies, alongside talking up the game’s next updates.

V Rising sold over 1.5 million copies comes within two weeks of its launch in May, and is available via Steam Early Access. The game previously sold 1 million copies within a week and over 500,000 copies within its first few days of sale.

Now that quite a number of players have sunk their teeth into the vampiric survival RPG, Stunlock is focused more than ever on taking in feedback from its early access debut.

“Our mission will be to find out what is most important to our players and how to take V Rising to the next level. We currently plan to work on more extensive updates rather than run for frequent smaller patches and minor changes,” marketing director Johan Ilves said in a blog update. “It’s too early to tell when the first bigger V Rising content patch will arrive, as we will give it the time to make sure it brings something new to the experience. This will require more patience from you as a fan!”

He added, “Meanwhile, we will do our best to make sure the first content update will be worth waiting for.”

Stunlock noted their main focus right now is squashing bugs, balancing the game more, optimizing servers, and adding more quality of life improvements.

In terms of new content, however, Stunlock teased “more weapons to wield, loot to plunder, and sorcery to conjure” in the road leading up to its big 1.0 release. Furthermore, V Rising will also get more V Bloods with new challenges, new lands to explore, and more ways to enhance your castle.

In case you missed it – we found V Rising extremely promising in our thorough video and written preview – which you can find here.
