How To Create Dedicated Servers

V Rising is a survival adventure RPG in which players can live out their creature-of-the-night dreams as vampires. Starting from nothing, players craft their combat gear, build impressive castles, and defeat enemies as their power grows. V Rising can be played solo or with others using an online server.

Public servers are available, and co-play capabilities are great if players want to join the same clan. Alternatively, players can host their own dedicated server if they want more control over the settings and to decide who will join. Players can use this guide to learn how to create a dedicated server in V Rising.

To make their server joinable, players must allow the server through their Firewall and set up port forwarding on their router. Port forwarding will be different for everyone, depending on their router, but for most, it requires knowing their internal IP Address and IPv4 Address. The best way to ensure it is done right is to follow the manufacturer’s instructions on port forwarding for their specific router.

After getting the server running, players can then join it by launching V Rising and following the following steps:

  1. Click “Play”
  2. Select “Online Play”
  3. Select “Show All Servers” at the bottom right side of the next page
  4. Then, type in the server name. Make sure the correct filters are on/off

Players can also join it by clicking “Direct Join” and typing in the server’s IP Address.
