Stunlock Studios and Konami have joined forces to collaborate with V Rising and Castlevania respectively!

Vampire Hunter Simon Belmont is entering the world of V Rising, and he's bringing with him his arsenal of holy weaponry. In case you weren't aware, you play as a Vampire in V Rising, so that's not a good thing at all! Defeat Simon Belmont to gain access to his iconic whip, and acquire new combat abilities.

All of this content comes as a free upgrade on May 8th when V Rising gets its full launch. You can also purchase the "Legacy of Castlevania Premium Pack" DLC, which will allow players to construct their own castles in Castlevania's unique style of gothic aesthetic. Plus you'll get access to unique character cosmetics, a spooky skeletal mount, and the choice of two re-imaginings of classic Castlevania musical themes!

V Rising itself has been subject to praise by the community since its launch into early access in 2022. Having received 88% positive reviews so far on Steam and nearly 4 million copies sold.

V Rising will launch on Steam on May 8th, it's currently available to purchase in Early Access right now! The game is rated as "Playable" on the Steam Deck due to some in-game text being difficult to read and correct controller icons aren't always displayed.
