I wrote about V Rising yesterday, and famous that it had bought over 500,000 copies. Effectively, it has now bought much more than that, having hit the a million mark lower than every week after launch.
The milestone was introduced by builders Stunlock earlier at the moment:
That’s a enjoyable truth, however it’s not the one V Rising information at the moment. In issues extra necessary for anybody eager to play the sport solo (and even with buddies, however domestically), the vampire survival journey now consists of an offline mode.
Beforehand, the sport was online-only, and whereas it does characteristic multiplayer parts (each versus and co-op), it’s additionally utterly fulfilling in singleplayer. These solo gamers nonetheless needed to be taking part in on-line although, which relying in your state of affairs wasn’t all the time doable (and even simply one thing you needed to need to be doing).
In order a part of the sport’s 0.5.41448 replace, solo gamers not need to, and may now boot the sport in LAN mode as an alternative. Because the identify suggests, although, whereas this can create an offline world so that you can discover, you possibly can nonetheless play with buddies in the event that they’re a part of the identical community:
We’ve now enabled LAN Mode, permitting gamers to play V Rising with out an web connection. Gamers can activate this mode inside the host sport display and when beginning up the server. LAN Mode may be performed solo or with buddies on the identical native community. Please understand that we’ll work on enhancing the LAN Mode as we proceed to develop V Rising throughout Early Entry.
Additionally added at the moment is the flexibility for Steam Cloud to avoid wasting a sport’s server historical past:
Steam Cloud can now retailer V Rising Server Historical past. The automated save is enabled by default. To disable it, please go to the Steam Properties for V Rising. This may resolve a problem with “lacking character” that would happen when becoming a member of a server from a unique PC.
You’ll be able to learn the complete record of modifications made within the replace right here.
