Stunlock Studios recently published a full gameplay trailer for Secrets of Gloomrot, the highly anticipated first major content update for V Rising as it celebrates its first anniversary on May 17, 2023. In V Rising we survive as a newly awakened vampire in a world ruled by humans and rise to become the next Dracula. Feed on blood to gain new powers, hide from the scorching sun, and engage in real-time PvE and PvP combat set in a dark fantasy realm. The Secrets of Gloomrot update adds a host of new content for players: improved castle building, expanded combat mechanics, and significant changes to the world map which includes the biome of Gloomrot.
As one of the game’s larger regions, Gloomrot offers an extensive new area to explore where players will fight against mutated experiments and mechanical wonders spawned from the twisted imaginations of the Trancendum. Players will hunt the blood of the brilliantly insane to harness the power of lightning and enter a new age of technology. In addition to the new biome, the update includes a long list of improvements and new content. Players can construct multiple castle floors, claim castle territories and customize their domains in new ways.
Combat is improved and has become more diverse with the addition of new weapon types and a new spell school. On top of that, the jewel system allows players to modify their spells to their liking. The world of Vardoran has been revamped, offering players new points of interest to visit, visual updates, new items, and enemy types. Players will also encounter 13 additional bosses and 30 new enemy types.
