Find out what sleeping does in V Rising!

If you’re looking to take a little bit from V Rising, you’ll come to find out that you can’t just pause the game. Like other games that require you to stay in its world, if you’re looking to take a little bit of a break to do your own thing, you’ll need to hide out in a location that doesn’t have large amounts of enemies. Even by pressing the Escape Key, you’ll still be vulnerable to anyone and everything in your immediate surroundings.

However, there are a few ways to get around this, and that’s what we are here to talk about today. One of the best ways to take a break is by Sleeping, which will not only benefit you but also your vampiric creation in the world. Find out how you’ll be able to get some beauty rest, and what it can do to help you out in the long run.

Taking A Little Snooze In V Rising Is Quite Beneficial


While you roam the world at night, the sun is your mortal enemy in V Rising. You’ll need to find different ways to avoid it if you’re looking to survive, but there is one solid way to make sure that you can avoid it, which gives you a chance to step away from the screen for a bit as well if needed.

As you progress through the tutorial, you’ll be able to unlock and build a Wooden Coffin, which will allow you to press F to Sleep. Once you have stepped inside of your coffin, you’re able to essentially pause the game, as you cannot take damage while inside of this item. You’ll also be able to upgrade it in the future, so you’ll be able to have it match your other decorations inside of your castle.

It’s also a great way to make sure that you are not damaged by the sun and helps pass some time if you cannot get out and about. You’ll also be able to craft more coffins as you progress in the game, so your loyal servants have a place to rest, as well.

Sleeping is a great way to pass the time, especially if you need to step away for some time and don’t want to risk being attacked by other players or creatures. You’ll be able to sleep the day away at any point in the game, which can literally be a lifesaver.

V Rising is available now, in early access, on Microsoft Windows.
