V Rising has already sold over 500,000 times. The Swedish studio Stunlock Studios officially announced this. The number is initially impressive due to the fact that V Rising is still in early access . In addition, the game in this form was only on 17. May 2022 published. We also dealt with the open world survival game in our preview. The title currently knows that as a weakened vampire you try to survive and rebuild your own castle, to inspire many people on Steam. Accordingly, the numbers of simultaneous users are immense. On the first weekend after publication, for example, over 130,000 people played at the same time v. This lies the title in the top 10 of the most played Steam titles.
long -term success?
The question now is whether Stunlock Studios can use this successful start and make V Rising a successful title in the long term.
It is currently not known when exactly the game will leave its early access status behind. The studio on the game’s steam side is currently stating that the game should receive a complete release in the next twelve months. From the outside, however, it is very difficult to assess, to what extent it is a realistic goal.
For fans of the game, it remains to be hoped that V Rising will not sink into a development hell or stay in the early access much longer than expected. A prominent example of a more than long stay in these regions is currently Baldur’s Gate 3.
a successful genre
V Rising is currently not the only popular survival title that is still in the early access stage. In the past, we have already reported on Valheim, a survival game with Vikinger setting. This survival title, too, can currently look forward to more than 10 million sales despite Early Access.
