A new update is available for V Rising today, June 16, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch. This update contains a handful of new features and bug fixes in addition to a wide array of balance adjustments for most weapons and abilities in the game. If you’re a PVP V Rising player, then the balance adjustments are the highlight of the patch, making certain skills and strategies more effective. Those that play on a private server with friends or on their own still get some new things in this update though, such as the ability to dismantle floors and borders next to walls without having to destroy the walls first. Here’s everything new with the June 16 V Rising update.

V Rising June 16 Update Patch Notes

Here’s the full list of patch notes for this V Rising update directly from Steam.

New Features

  • Players can now dismantle floors and borders that are next to walls/pillars without having to dismantle any wall/pillar first, as long as this does not leave any wall/pillar without a floor connection (#305517).
  • Localization has been added for Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, and Turkish.
  • The localization for Portuguese – Brazil, French, German, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish has been updated to be more accurate and up to date.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where it was possible to jump over walls in certain cases.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when voice muting players.
  • Fixed a bug that could sometimes cause players to not be able to connect to servers (related to #304262, but not expected to solve all reported cases).
  • Improved error handling and error feedback when the server saves the game world (related to #304262 and #304381 but is not expected to solve all reported cases).
  • Added more validation and safety checks to catch more types of rare errors while saving.
  • If the server fails to save, all active players on the server now get a chat notification containing basic information about the type of error that was encountered.
  • The server no longer uses the Windows temp folder while saving the world. It instead saves the temporary files to a neighboring folder to the target save path.
  • Fixed an issue where some font characters were displayed with the wrong font in Hungarian and French (among other languages).
  • Fixed an issue where territory and buildings had a chance of not getting destroyed with their castle if they were constructed at a large enough distance from the Castle Heart (#306085, #305657).
  • Fixed an issue where the screen could slowly turn dark (#304465, #304266).
  • Fixed a crash that some players experienced when launching the game due to a video player crash. If you are experiencing a launch crash before the cinematic plays, you can turn videos off by entering -noVideo as a launch option to the game (related to #304250 but not expected to solve all reported cases).
