V Rising Free Weekend and Halloween Event

Halloween has arrived in V Rising today through the "Bloodfeast" event introducing a randomized server called "Mad Hunt," balance adjustments, and a free Halloween-themed DLC with decorations to style up your castle. A bit later this week, on Friday, developer Stunlock Studios will open its servers to all players for the weekend that ends on November 1st.

The headline addition for the new Halloween-focused patch is a free-for-all server that throws in an element of chaos by randomizing V Blood locations, V Blood spell unlocks, and V Blood technologies. Stunlock has "put certain limits in place" so players can acquire certain technologies at particular points to not make progression "frustrating or impossible." As a small tease, Stunlock put together a short clip of encounters and places where players might stumble across adversaries.

In addition to those preset changes are balance adjustments to spells, weapons, and changes to support a healthier end-game castle-raiding environment. The standard raid time on official servers is now a 4-hour window instead of a 6-hour window, which Stunlock hopes "makes it a bit easier to defend your territory."

Players can also obtain a "Haunted Nights Castle DLC Pack" through November 7th, giving all manner of spooky castle decorations like drapes, skull candles, and the like. The decorations will be available all year long, but you must claim them before the event ends.

If you want to participate in the Halloween festivities but don't have V Rising purchased, Stunlock Studios will open its servers for you on Friday till November 1st. You can download the game on Steam or GeForce NOW. The cloud gaming service version will be open to the public on October 27th.

Also, if you were going to submit a video for their ongoing V Rising Halloween Video Contest, you have until later today to send an entry. For more information on the recent patch, check it out on the V Rising website!
