Offline mode is coming to V Rising “as soon as possible”

The indie survival title will have an offline mode very soon, according to the developer.

V Rising is a survival title from Sweden’s Stunlock Studios in which players hunt at night as vampires and build castles. It’s somewhat similar to Valheim, which is another indie title developed in Sweden, and like that survival game V Rising could be on the verge of success.

V Rising only launched into Early Access a few days ago, but it cruised up the Steam charts, with mostly positive user reviews and tens of thousands of concurrent players. Since it is a survival game, it could be popular with streamers as well as their genre of choice for the live streaming crowd. However, due to its success, there have been complaints that V Rising requires an internet connection. This complaint has been regular enough that the developer is now responding (via PC Gamer).

Although the description on the Steam page says that players can “Make allies or enemies online or play solo offline”, the latter feature does not currently appear to exist as the game requires users to be online even to play solo. In response to inquiries about this topic on Discord, Stunlock said, “We’ve prioritized making it available as soon as possible.”

The developers added: “For those of you who can’t play right now due to inconsistent internet connections or something like that, we apologize for any inconvenience this will cause. We estimate that offline play should be available at some point.” time in the next few days, but it may be sooner”.

Stunlock clearly wants to make sure players are happy as the game continues to grow (heh). The last time we reviewed the game it had reached a peak of 56,175 concurrent players, but in the last 24 hours this record has been broken. The peak now sits at 70,256, which was recorded the day before, so who knows if this will increase further as the game picks up both word of mouth and media coverage. At TheGamer, we previewed V Rising, although our feature editor Eric Switzer wasn’t blown away by the game, but it can always be hard to predict the next big thing.

Whether V Rising can reach the levels achieved by its Swedish cousin, Valheim, remains to be seen, but the inclusion of offline play should help.
