V Rising Halloween Event Brings Spooky Chaos Next Week

The V Rising Halloween event was only a matter of time, really. I mean, if any game were to receive a Halloween update, it would be V Rising, right? Anyways, the V Rising Halloween event adds some free DLC to build with, a free to play weekend over Halloween, and an update on October 24th that will add a fun server preset by the name of Mad Hunt. That's a fairly beefy event, but considering how popular the game is, Stunlock Studios can (and definitely should) keep supporting it.

To start, the free to play weekend will allow you to play with your non-V Rising owning friends from October 28th to November 1st (and, indeed, allow you to play the game if you don't own it). V Rising will also be available on GeForce Now on October 27th, so if you like streaming your games then you have that option as well.

The Haunted Nights Castle Pack free DLC will be available up until November 7th, so if you want to make your castle look even more spooky you should get it while you can. The DLC includes Wall Decors, Gourd Lanterns, Stained Glass Windows, Carpets, and more Halloween-esque goodies that will help make your decor better fit the season.

Last but definitely not least is the Halloween update, which will release on October 24th. It will add the Mad Hunt server preset, which will randomize V Blood locations, V Blood spell unlocks, and V Blood technologies around the map. There are some limits in place to ensure that progression isn't too hard or otherwise impossible. Otherwise, it's a free for all that may result in some fun, weird situations, so check it out if you don't mind a little chaos with your vampirism.

If you're the type of player to want to randomize certain locations and not others, Mad Hunt will also let you customize which randomizations you want to use and which ones you don't. There will also be some balance adjustments to spells and weapons and some tweaks "to support a healthier endgame castle-raiding environment", according to the devs. These include reduced raid times, hopefully making it easier to defend your territory. Be sure to check out the full V Rising Halloween event announcement right here for the lowdown.
