The highly requested scheduled server wipes are finally being added to the immensely popular vampire survival game V Rising. It is officially coming in Patch 0.5.42553 and is called Hotfix 8. The update is going live at 8:00 a.m. UTC today. V Rising must be updated with this new patch in order to run. If you are experiencing difficulties, verify that your version of V Rising is up to date.

V Rising Server Wipe Features

Here is the list of new features coming to the game:

  • New servers can now be hosted with repeated scheduled wipes.
  • Servers with Scheduled Wipes will show a unique icon in the server list.
  • Added a filter to show only servers with Scheduled Wipes.
  • Server with Scheduled Wipes will display the number of days remaining until the next planned wipe.
  • Once the date for the wipe arrives, the next Server Restart will trigger a wipe.
  • Instructions on how to use this feature will be included in our Dedicated Server documentation and on G-Portal’s website.
  • We will open new Official servers with this feature in the near future.
  • Please note that Scheduled Wipes is an optional feature and will only be possible in new servers created after today’s patch.

V Rising Patch Notes

There will also be these new settings:

  • Added new ServerHostSettings for lowering FPS on servers when they are empty:
      • LowerFPSWhenEmpty
      • LowerFPSWhenEmptyValue
      • The default is true and with a value of 1.
  • Official PvP Presets now uses 1.25 BloodDrainModifier instead of 1.0

With this patch comes new bug fixes as well. Here they are:

  • Fixed a bug where clouds would get blurrier and start to lag over time.
  • DLCs now work in LAN Mode.
  • Fixed a rare server crash involving Directional Shields and Counters.
  • Fixed an issue where crashing servers would leave a growing amount of temporary data in the save folders. Such temporary data will be cleaned up with this patch.

And lastly, there are general updates:

  • The initial Server List request will now prioritize servers with players, to increase the speed at which servers are fetched.
  • Replaced “Activity” with “Territory” in the server list view.
  • Localization has been added for Spanish – Latin America, Danish, Thai, and Ukrainian.
  • Replaced “Days Played” with “Days Running” in the Server Details.
  • “Days Played” previously displayed the number of in-game days since server start, “Days Running” will now instead display the number of real-time days since server start.

V Rising is available now in early access on Steam.
