V Rising puts far more emphasis on survival than a more action-oriented vamp game. Surviving against the many enemies is going to be tough. Blood is the core of your survival. You will need blood to continue fighting and growing your power. As you grow that shiny new castle, there are a lot of things you need to build. Being a vampire is a hugely cool thing, popular fiction has had a really big impact here. V Rising is a crafting-focused game, of course, there’s farming too. And when night falls, you have a free hand to hunt.
And as you expand your territory and controlled minions, you even get to set roots down with a gothic manor. You get to build your massive and brooding castles to dominate the landscape. And when building that castle, there’s a lot of stuff to learn. Like learning how to manage Misery for your newly taken prisoners. There’s so much more to this game as well.

How to delete local saves in V Rising
If you want to get rid of saves for some reason, maybe due to file corruption, you can do it pretty easily. As the game is in early access, there’s not an easy in-game way to do it, but Windows makes file management very easy. You need to open the right folder and then delete the autosave files. Note that this only applies to local server games, or solo games. The saves for the servers hosted on other machines are stored as a copy locally, but can’t be deleted without access to the server’s files.
Anyway, here’s what to do to get rid of local saves in V Rising. You just need to go into the right Windows folder and delete the correct files. Here’s the full default path that the game uses:
By typing %appdata% into the Windows search bar, you should be able to open the Roaming folder directly. Just navigate up one folder in the directory and you’ll see the LocalLow folder you’re after. Open the v1 folder and you will see the folder that holds your saved folder. All of your autosaves will be found here. You can also see json files containing the game settings and other elements of the server you’re running.
