Default V Rising (Valheim with Vampires)

Snagged V Rising last night after some good press and watching some streams. It's basically a survival action and building game similar to Valheim. Warning it is in Early Access for at least another year, but seems very polished and complete thus far.

Not sure if anyone else has it, but if anyone is thinking of running a dedicated Rage server that might be fun. It doesn't have offline play yet (though you can setup a private server), which is the biggest negative since progress is tied to a server. I hopped in someone's random server which went down soon after, so I rolled up on one of their official servers for a bit of security. Having something for us might be cool.

The thing I'm enjoying most about it is the ARPG/MOBA like combat. You don't start out with much, but now that I can see the skills availble, you can mix up combat in a lot of ways. Most (or all) skills are gained through tracking down NPC monsters/people and beating them down enough so you can suck their blood and gain their skill. Also the sun ****ing kills you, which can be a pain when running around in the daytime.

I bought it over the weekend. Played for about an hour, but have no idea what I'm supposed to do, where I'm supposed to go, what my goal is, anything really. They just drop you in and go "have fun!". I'm getting kinda tired of games being lazy about that and not giving you any idea what to do.

Offline play was just added in latest patch (released?).

it's a fun game if you're into games like Valheim, especially if you play it with a bunch of friends. If you don't like base building, gathering stuff, crafting and so on then well, it's not for you. As already said, there's no real story (yet) and as of that there's no given goal other than survive, build, get stronger. There are also no Levels per se, you don't level up, gain exp or something, instead it's all about gear level. Also it's kinda cheap, around 15-18 bucks, so there's that.

Personally i like to mix the skills and romp around with my buddies. So far it's running surprisingly stable.

Playing solo on a public server has been pretty fun. I think I like the gameplay loop better than Valheim as the building is simpler and gaining skills and finding V Blood sources is made obvious. Valheim is far more obtuse about telling you things and I hardly knew what was going on.

For these games there is often a tipping point where I'm like "I've had a good 20+ hours in this and now it's asking me to do way to much to progress" and I give up. I can't say this won't be the same, but just running around killing mobs has been fun enough. I can't say that for Valheim (most of the time I hated combat and found it annoying).

I found it just ok. PvP servers are way over crowded for the map sizes and I've already run into several Rust-like toxic players (the game has Rust style persistence). I feel like I can already see where this game is headed community wise and I don't really have any more interest in it.
