The first major update for V Rising was released today. The "Secrets of Gloomrot" is a free content update that comes on the one-year anniversary of V Rising's Early Access launch.

Secrets of Gloomrot introduces a bunch of new content into the vampire survival title. There is a new biome, named Gloomrot, that features two distinct regions "contorted via the pursuit of sinister science."

This new biome leaves so much room for new activities. New activities such as building multi-level castles, engaging in a revamped spell system, and hunt down 13 new bosses and 30 new enemy types.

More on V Rising:

Survive as a newly awakened vampire in a world ruled by humans and rise to become the next Dracula. Feed on blood to gain new powers, hide from the scorching sun, and engage in real-time PvE and PvP combat set in a dark fantasy realm. Raise your castle and invite friends to join as you explore a vast open world, pillage villages, skirmish with bandits, and delve into the lairs of supernatural beasts. Attack other players’ castles or become a diplomat in a game of blood, power, and betrayal.​

With this update comes multi-level castles, the new territory system, and sweeping improvements to building and decorating your lair! Finally, you have the tools to make a mighty citadel worthy of your power.


A massive new zone with two unique areas twisted in the pursuit of cruel science. Journey through noxious valleys and thunderstruck highlands, confronting grotesque experiments and robotic marvels born from the twisted minds of the Trancendum.


Vardoran has been reimagined! From beautiful new vistas that house terrifying and mystifying new enemies to the cursed, choking mist that warps the Cursed Forest experience, you can discover the human-infested lands as if it's your first time again.


Confront these new threats with an ascended spell system that has been revamped to make each spell school feel unique, including the new Storm magic. Modify your magic with new spell jewels. Cut down waves of enemies with the sweeping strikes of the greatsword, or go for black powder devastation with the dual pistols.


New powers roam the lands. On top of the 30 new enemy types to overcome, 13 new V Blood bosses can be found all across the land of Vardoran. Defeat them in epic showdowns so that you can drink their blood to gain their knowledge and abilities.​
