Get ready to bite and sink into a world of blood, castles, and epic battles, including one against the legendary Dracula himself.

V Rising, the popular RPG game where players become vampires, will leave Early Access soon. Swedish game developer Stunlock Studios announced that the full version of V Rising will launch this May 8.

They also dropped a new trailer, giving fans and players a sneak peek into the game's 1.0 edition.

However, players and fans of V Rising are advised to start saving their games. To accommodate 'server reorganization' for the 1.0 launch, the game will go offline temporarily. According to Stunlock Studios, the downtime will begin on May 6th until May 8th, the release date of the full version.

"The goal of official servers is to provide a stable V Rising experience," developers said. "But ultimately we expect players to move on to private servers with more tailored gameplay after they’ve got their Vampire legs under them," they added.

V Rising's 1.0 edition will contain new content as well as quality-of-life improvements.

Upon its release, players can access all of its seven regions, and meet a total of 57 bosses. Based on its newest trailer, creators will introduce a new area for exploration called the Ruins of Mortium.

Described as a sprawling winter wonderland, it was once a vibrant vampire civilization. Now, Mortium is haunted by the remnants of Dracula's fanatical followers. Players can explore and even face the ultimate boss - no other than Dracula himself.

Aside from Dracula, developers also unveiled another boss - the iconic vampire hunter Simon Belmont.

In the meantime, V Rising's 1.0 edition has added new features and improvements to the game. These included a native gamepad support and a 'more streamlined storage system.'

V Rising first came out via Early Access in 2022. The game then became a critical and commercial success, selling over 4 million copies.

The game will also have an upcoming PlayStation 5 version. The release date remains to be announced.
