Players can now play V Rising without an internet connection, new admin commands, and more.
A larger patch is going live today at 11:00 UTC / 13:00 CEST that allows players to play the game without an internet connection, new Steam Cloud features, and more. There could be up to 30 minutes of downtime on official servers and on player-run servers that are set to auto-update.
Patch Notes 0.5.41448
Devs have now enabled LAN Mode, allowing players to play V Rising without an internet connection. Players can activate this mode within the host game screen and when starting up the server. LAN Mode can be played solo or with friends on the same local network. Please keep in mind that devs will work on improving the LAN Mode as devs continue to develop V Rising during Early Access.
Devs also added the feature to send server-wide messages. On GPortal servers, a message will show up in the chat when a server restarts as part of its maintenance routine, warning players to get to safety before the server shuts down. The expected downtime for server restarts can last up to a minute. Other server hosts can use this new feature to send important messages to players on a particular server.
This patch also includes several fixes to the “Authentication Error” that hindered players from getting back onto specific servers.
Salvaging cloaks no longer returns the total crafting cost, players can no longer make a material profit by crafting and salvaging certain cloaks in combination with the tailoring floor bonus.
Previously, if a player placed a soul shard in a container, it would despawn after a few hours and reset, leading to confusion. Players may no longer place soul shards in containers. Instead, the game clarifies that players need to build the soul shards within their castle to keep them. Also, players can no longer hide soul shards in lockboxes before being raided.
This patch also fixes the following issues:
- Players can no longer send the same servant on multiple hunts by placing several thrones.
- Castle floors will no longer disconnect from the Castle Heart when two players dismantle connecting floors simultaneously.
- Players will no longer get multiple equipment buffs by equipping two weapons simultaneously under certain circumstances.
- Some characters in Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Japanese used to display incorrectly at times. Devs updated the font used in the game to prevent this from happening.
Steam Cloud can now store V Rising Server History. The automatic save is enabled by default. To disable it, please go to the Steam Properties for V Rising. This will solve an issue with “missing character” that could occur when joining a server from a different PC.
Server icons have been added next to the name on official servers to make it easier to identify them.
To improve management of privately hosted servers, devs have added new admin console commands:
This command modifies the health of the target unit/object closest to the admin’s cursor, allowing admins to deal damage or heal targets.
This command modifies the durability of equipped items. Note that it cannot be used to repair broken items that are not equipped.
This command adds up to 12 in-game hours to leap in time, affecting the current in-game hour and the respawn timers of units and objects. Use this command in quick succession to add more time. Please note that a server can never go back in time.
LAN / Offline Mode
To play V Rising without an internet connection you need to follow these steps:
Before you disconnect from the internet you need to
- Start Steam
- Go Offline on Steam (Steam -> Go Offline…)

- If you are hosting a local server you need to start the server in LAN Mode by using the checkbox in the UI or starting the dedicated server with the “-lan” parameter
