V Rising game has 1 million copies sold and a Proton support fix for Linux via Windows PC. Along with the impressive creative efforts of developer Stunlock Studios. Which doing very well via Steam Early Access with 87% Very Positive reviews.

Swedish game developer Stunlock Studios have announced that V Rising has 1 million copies sold. The open world vampire survival game was Just released into early access on May 17th. With official servers of up to 50 players. While you enter the ravaged world of the vampires and build an impressive castle. Doing so in the mystical continent of Vardoran.

Now there are a couple of methods of running V Rising on Linux via Proton. All thanks to the community and people testing different options.

You can try using the latest Proton GE with the DXVK_ASYNC=1 %command% Steam Launch Option. There are reports on ProtonDB as well as a Steam Discussions thread that it works. But not from my experience. Yet following Plan B, this does work with Proton 7.0-2.

Install “Battlerite Royale” on Steam (free to play):

steamapps/common/Battlerite Royale/BattleriteRoyale_Data/Plugins/stun_steamnetworking.dll

Paste the file to following locations:


After this, V Rising will launch the intro. From here you can tweak your settings and start a solo game. But due note, things like accessing and using skills will lag the first time. Also, if you lose mouse clicks in the Main Menu, Alt + Tab is the fix. While PvP and online co-op are untested.

V Rising – Early Access Launch Trailer

In V Rising, you need to survive as a newly awakened vampire. Doing so in a world ruled by humans and rise to become the next Dracula. Feed on blood to gain new powers and hide from the scorching sun. Then engage in real-time PvE and PvP combat set in a dark fantasy realm. Raise your castle and invite friends to join as you explore a vast open world. Then loot villages, skirmish with bandits, and delve into the lairs of supernatural beasts. Attack other player’s castles, or become a diplomat in a game of blood, power, and betrayal.

Stick to the shadows during the daytime, or the burning sunlight will turn you to ashes. Roam the night and prey on your victims in the darkness. As a vampire, you must quench your thirst for blood while planning your strategies around the day and nighttime. Although Stunlock Studios need to create a native Linux build for the Unity 3D game.

V Rising is currently available on Steam Early Access. Priced at $19.99 USD / £15.49 / 19,99€. But now you can play the Windows PC build on Linux via Proton.
