How to Construct a Castle Heart in V Rising

V Rising is the new talk of the town. People are calling it the “Valheim with Vampires”, and it kind of feels quite similar, to be honest. Before we head over to the main topic, a little intro about the game.

To keep it simple, V Rising is a Survival game that features Vampires. Your job, as a Vampire, is to Build, Hunt, Conquer, and Rise as a supreme overlord in the world of the living.

You start your journey as a weak vampire and climb your way up to the top level of the hierarchy. Hunt for blood in nearby settlements to regain your strength while hiding from the scorching sun to survive.

You can choose to explore the massive open-world solo or with your friend in the co-op mode. Pillage villages, raid camps, force your way to the different territories. Do whatever you have to, to grow.

Anyway, to construct anything in V Rising, you need to construct and place a Castle Heart, first. Here is how to do it.
