The latest V Rising update has a bunch of new features, bug fixes, and balance changes that should shake up the meta a bit, with the most useful giving players the option to dismantle floors and borders that are next to walls and pillars. However, this can only be done if this doesn't leave a wall or pillar without a floor connection. That's only one part of the latest patch, so let's check out the rest of it, shall we?

What's in the latest V Rising update?

The dismantling feature is the biggest feature that's in the latest V Rising update, but there's also localization being added for Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, and Turkish. The localizations for Brazil, French, German, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish have also been updated for accuracy as well, so if you want to play V Rising in a different language, today is your lucky day.

 

As for bug fixes, you can now jump over walls and not have to worry about crashes, which is pretty nice. What's nicer is that players could've crashed if they muted voice muted players before today, which is no longer the case. If the server you're playing on fails to save, everyone online will receive a chat notification containing basic information about the type of error, which sounds pretty useful for figuring out what went wrong.

Balance changes include Vermin Salve no longer being interrupted by damage during the cast time, but it will still break during the buff duration if players take damage. Merciless Charge's cast time has been reduced to 0.7 seconds from 0.8 seconds, and an issue where the player got locked into position for a short time when the area effect triggered early during the dash has also been fixed. Melee damage when mounted has been reduced by 30%, so you will no longer be as overpowered as you once were on a horse.

 
 

That's not everything that's included in the update, though. If you like to take a peek behind the scenes, Aleksandria Migova, the composer for V Rising, talked about how she went about composing for the indie megahit:

“I used a lot of strings, woodwinds, ambient soundscapes, and warm evolving string phrases. One of the main and returning instruments of the album is a sampled 'Huberman' Stradivari violin from the year 1713. Even if the music is a modern production, I really wanted to have fragments of old, almost ancient-sounding instruments in the mix, communicating the rich and mysterious history of Vardoran.”
