Good evening folks!
Phew, it's been a while since we've been hyped up for an Early Access launch. This one looks big! Valheim definitely caught us off guard so I'd like to drop some notes below from some of the previous launches we've been part of and what you can expect from your Survival Servers game server on that first week. Of course, we'll drop any important information in our "pinned" notices at the top of your V Rising game server page.
Here's what you can expect on launch day -
Will this game be clunky/laggy?
It appears that they've tested this one pretty well, but time will tell. Fortunately they have another PvP game (Battlerite) and have a lot of experience running game servers.
Joining the server - how do we get in?
There is a server browser. You will find your server by the name.
We have a page ready for launch day on our Wiki, you can check here for potentially more updated information -
Is data transferrable from PC to game server?
We cannot be certain but it does look similar to Valheim where the locally hosted world is the same file and can be transferred over.
What are the max number of players?
The recommendation set by Stunlock from the V Rising Q&A is that the game supports up to 40 players
Are there wipes?
It does not look like there are programmed wipes in the game as progression is PvE backed. For PvP servers, we will be providing a wipe option that can be manually ran per usual like our other game server offerings.
What time is launch?
5 am PST on May 17th.
How will the DLC be activated on servers and can you play with other non-DLC players on your server?
We don't really know the answer to this question but if they are cosmetic items I would imagine they'd be tied to your character and it would function like Rust items.
The throne awaits..
