V Rising server wipe is a new feature that has just been added to the game. V Rising is an online survival action game, and has all the ups and downs of playing on servers with other players. A feature that many players have been asking for to be added to the game is server wipes. Well their requests have been answered, so here is what you need to know about the new V Rising server wipe feature.

V Rising Server Wipe: What It Is

A server wipe is pretty much what it sounds like. Periodically, a server will be wiped, which means everything on the server will be reset. All buildings erased, all characters back to the beginning. This may seem like something no one would actively want, but you would be surprised.

For some, the point of a game like V Rising is to start over repeatedly, the challenge is to get to the end game, not to stay there. In competitive settings, player power can snowball to the point that no one else on the server can compete. For the sake of fairness and giving newer players a chance, it can be useful to wipe the server regularly and have everyone start from scratch.

Starting now, some new servers will get wiped from time to time. This will be indicated in the server browser, and it will not happen on older servers. If you want to play on a server that gets wiped you can choose to do so, and you be able to see how long until the next wipe occurs. You can even institute server wipes on your own servers, if that is something you want to do.

Now, if this all sounds incredibly unappealing to you, that is fair. Server wipes will not happen on every public server, and it is entirely possible to avoid them altogether. This feature simply exists to prevent public servers from becoming top-heavy, completely dominated by a small group of players who got there first. In that sense it is a good thing, something to give players a competitive chance regardless of when they start playing the game.

That is everything there is to know about V Rising server wipes. For more on the game, check out our list of V Rising boss locations.
