Creating a V Rising game server is an easy process that can be done from either a dedicated server or your home computer. Alternatively, you can choose a *link coming soon* that will fit your needs.

Option #1: Renting a V Rising server (see example control panel below!)

Option #2: Creating a V Rising Server From Your Home Computer or Dedicated Server

Server Requirements

Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Server 2016, Server 2019 & 64-Bit

Quad Core processor (requires up to 2 full cores)

Up to 16GB memory (currently uses around 2GB memory)

2GB disk space (install folder)

Step 1: Fetching Game Server files

The best method to get dedicated server game files is via the dedicated server depot on Steam via SteamCMD.

  1. Create a folder where you wish to store your V Rising game server hosting files
  2. Inside of the folder, place the newly downloading SteamCMD.exe file
  3. Create a batch file named SteamCMD.bat
  4. Place the following code in this batch file:
@echo off
start "" steamcmd.exe +login anonymous +force_install_dir "C:\Some\Path\Where\You\Want\Game\Server\Files\To\Go" +app_update 1829350 validate +quit
  1. Right-click SteamCMD.bat and Run as Administrator
  2. Your game server files should be completely downloaded by now

Step 2: Setting up a V Rising Dedicated Server

  1. Create a batch file named VRising.bat in your newly created V Rising server folder from step 1
  2. Place the following code in this batch file:
start "" VRisingServer.exe -log
  1. Your local save files are located within this area on your computer:
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Stunlock Studios\VRisingServer\Saves
2. However, just like with the settings, this can be overridden with the -persistentDataPath parameter.

Step 3: Configuring your V Rising Server

Now comes the fun part, setting up your V Rising game server to your liking.

To modify game server settings you can create two files


You can create these files in your VRisingServer\Settings folder

You can modify settings in here (in addition to the launch line) - these settings overwrite your launch line settings:



"Name" : "My V Rising Server",
"Description" : "This is a role playing server",
"Port" : 27015,
"QueryPort" : 27016,
"MaxConnectedUsers" : 10,
"MaxConnectedAdmins" : 4,
"SaveName" : "world1",
"Password" : "SuperSecret",
"ListOnMasterServer" : true,
"AutoSaveCount" : 40,
"AutoSaveInterval" : 120,
"GameSettingsPreset" : "StandardPvP"

Step 3: Port Forwarding

Add an incoming rule to your Windows Firewall to allow TCP/UDP port (game port) 27015, (Steam query port) 27016(or whichever ports you decide to use)

You may additionally need to add a forwarding rule to your network router. You can use to read how to do this.
