How to get stable 60 FPS in the growing vampire MMORPG


V Rising is a new game from the creators of Battlerite Royale. This time, Stunlock Studios decided to make an isometric MMORPG in a gothic setting with a vampire in the title role. The protagonist wakes up after several hundred years of sleep in order to rebuild his castle and return the bloodsuckers to their former glory.


V Rising has a very beautiful picture with detailed lighting. The play of light and shadow with a smooth (but accelerated) change of day and night looks simply amazing. Unfortunately, such graphics consume a lot of resources. Therefore, especially for those who want to increase productivity while maintaining a beautiful picture, we have compiled a guide.


What kind of computer do you need for V Rising (system requirements)?

We studied the tests of the game on different hardware at different resolutions and came to the conclusion that the official system requirements are not far from the truth. The game can load up to 16 processor threads but effectively uses no more than 8. At the same time, high performance per core is not required if there are at least 4 cores. Therefore, modern Intel Core i3 or old Core i5 can be considered the minimum processor requirement for V Rising, and also AMD Ryzen 3 of any generation. However, for a stable 60 FPS at high settings at 1080p, you will need a GeForce GTX 1070 or Radeon RX 590 graphics card.

Unfortunately, the official system requirements only target 1080p (1920x1080). Therefore, below we have compiled recommendations for the remaining resolutions, based on the tests studied.


For 1080p @ 30 FPS gameplay, max. settings (according to tests):

  • Operating system: Windows 10/11 (64-bit only!).
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-6400 / AMD Ryzen 5 1400.
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 / GTX 1050 Ti / AMD Radeon R7 370 / RX 560.
  • RAM: 8 gigabytes.

For 1080p @ 60 FPS gameplay, max. settings (according to tests):

  • Operating system: Windows 10/11 x64.
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-8700K / AMD Ryzen 5 3600X.
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 / AMD Radeon RX 590.

For playing at 1440p @ 30 FPS, max. settings (according to tests):

  • Operating system: Windows 10/11 x64.
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-9700K / AMD Ryzen 5 3600X.
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 / AMD Radeon RX 5700.
  • RAM: 16 gigabytes.

For playing at 1440p @ 60 FPS, max. settings (according to tests):

  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2070 / AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT.
  • RAM: 16 gigabytes.

For 4K @ 30 FPS gameplay, max. settings (according to tests):

  • Processor: Intel Core i5-10400 / AMD Ryzen 5 5600.
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2070 / AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT.
  • RAM: 16 gigabytes.

For 4K @ 60 FPS gameplay, max. settings (according to tests):

  • Operating system: Windows 10/11 x64.
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-10600K / AMD Ryzen 7 5700X.
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 / AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT.
  • RAM: 16 gigabytes.

Graphics settings in V Rising / how to increase FPS (frame rate) in the game

Next, we will analyze in detail all the graphic settings of V Rising. Where applicable, the impact of the option on the current performance as a percentage of maximum to minimum quality is shown in parentheses. Testing was conducted on the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

  • "Screen resolution". It is always better to set the resolution to the native one for your screen. The most common is 1920x1080 (you can see yours in the Windows display settings).
  • "window mode". The best option is a full-fledged full-screen mode without a window. So the maximum resources will be allocated to the game, without maintaining the desktop and some background processes.
  • "Occlusion of the environment" (up to 10%). This is the old familiar Ambient Occlusion, which is responsible for diffuse shading. It adds shadows at the joints and in the recesses, which makes the picture much more believable. The maximum quality eats up a decent amount of resources, so you should lower it to medium. It is better not to reduce below in order to avoid poor-quality shading with artifacts.
  • "Bloom" (up to 5%). Makes illuminated surfaces brighter. A beautiful effect that eats up not so much performance. Set the quality to medium.
  • "Shadows" (up to 1%). It's strange, but the shadows almost do not consume performance, so you can put a high quality. This might not be relevant for very outdated graphics cards (below the GeForce 900 series or R7 300th Radeon) - try medium or low quality and look at the amount of FPS.
  • "Volumetric lighting" (up to 5%). Responsible for the quality of the "rays of God", breaking through the foliage or holes. Performance isn't usually affected much, but graphics adapters from years ago may not perform as well. Try medium or high quality.
  • "Smoothing". You can disable anti-aliasing completely (not recommended) or choose one of three methods: FXAA, TAA, and SMAA. For older video cards, FXAA is better, but it will make the image less clear. With TAA, the “soap” is not so noticeable, but SMAA is better suited for modern video cards.
  • AMD FSR 1.0. The first version of FSR works a little better than the usual image stretching with a lower resolution. The quality mode is still tolerable, but it's better to turn it off.
  • "Vertical Synchronization". If you are ready to play at 30 FPS, then you can set the settings to medium-high on a weak PC and enable vertical sync. It will even out the frame time, which will make the video sequence as smooth as possible. Controls will become slightly less responsive, but in an isometric game, this is not noticeable.
  • Motion Blur (up to 10%). The game has a very dynamic combat system and a lot of animated objects in the frame. Perhaps that is why motion blur consumes a relatively large amount of resources. Most players are better off turning it off - and the picture will become cleaner.
  • "Depth of field" (up to 10%). Another artistic effect that only distracts from the game and reduces FPS. It is better to turn off the blurring of the background with depth of field.
  • "High-quality grass" (up to 15%). Many will have to turn it off due to the heavy load on the video card and processor. It's a pity: high-quality grass looks amazing, but low-quality grasslands turn into green planes.
  • "Low-quality environment" (up to 10%). Reduces the quality of atmospheric effects. It is better not to turn it on, otherwise, the picture will become noticeably more “soapy”.
  • "Blood effects enabled" (up to 10%). It is hardly worth turning off blood effects in a vampire game.
  • "Clothing quality" (up to 5%). Try downgrading to medium quality if you have outdated hardware.
  • "Tissue renewal rate" (up to 5%). Similar to the previous setting.
