As a co-op game, V Rising has the many interactive features including allowing the players to create and edit Private Servers. This guide will help you know how you can edit Private Servers in V-Rising.

Two options to set up a private server:

  • Buy a server from GPortal (paid, rented)
  • Set up a server with SteamCMD/Steam itself (free)

How to edit a GPortal dedicated server:


A Gportal server is paid because it is easy to use and has good performance. Less tech-savvy people can also avoid all the hassle of setting up the server yourself.

The way to edit dedicated private server settings on gportal is simple:

  • Click on “My Server”
  • Go to “V Rising Server”
  • From the left menu, select “Basic Settings”
  • Edit any of the 60 available settings here.
