One of the little hits of 2022 received an approximate release date foe version 1.0. V-Rising will leave Early Access in the second quarter of 2024, perhaps just in time for the anniversary of the title's debut in Steam Early Access (although the developers did not give an exact date).

As of June, fans were unlikely to be see many details, with the last major update was released this May. This is because devs at Stunlock were busy fine-tuning the game's "experimental" engine to improve optimization and stability, enabling the players' computers to get more frames of animation per second. By the way, developer tools were also refined, which will make it easier for the developers to create new content.

Speaking of which, V Rising will receive a new ice area for release, and with it additional enemies and bosses to defeat. The developers are also preparing more weapons and changes to the gameplay balance. It's mainly about increasing the availability of spells, which is intended to give players many more options at each stage of the game.

In addition, there was mention of expanding the vampire customization options, in-game events and... sitting on chairs. The developer also assured that the debut of patch 1.0 will not be the end of development of V Rising. More details can be found in the announcement published by the developers on Steam.
