How to join a clan in V Rising

Survival games have had many twists put on the formula, but V Rising is one of the few that cast you as the evil plaguing the world. As a vampire, your goal isn't just surviving but conquering the land for your own. As strong as your vampire abilities can become, you do have many weaknesses, and building up your strength can take a lot of time and grinding. The entire V Rising experience can be played as a solo RPG and survival experience, but vampires always work best with friends.

What You Need

  • V Rising

  • PC

V Rising allows clans of up to four undead friends to work together to spread their influence and dominate the world, as long as you're playing in the PvE game type. Building giant castles, taking down bosses, and raiding areas that would otherwise be too difficult all become a bloody treat with some backup. However, V Rising works a little differently than you might be used to when partying up in other survival titles. Here's everything you need to know about how to create and join clans in V Rising.

How to create a clan

Creating a clan in V Rising is a simple process that anyone can do. However, anyone who you want to join your clan must be playing on the same server as you to be able to join. If you, or anyone who joins your clan, goes to a different server, you're on your own again. Once in a clan, you can all use a private chat together, turn off friendly fire, build shared castles, and get some special perks.

Here's how to create a clan and invite your friends to it:

Step 1: Start up a game of V Rising.

Step 2: Open up the clan menu by pressing P.

Step 3: Select Create Clan.

Step 4: Choose your clan's name and message, and then select Create Clan.

Step 5: Your clan is now created. To invite your friends into it, start by opening the clan menu again by hitting P.

Step 6: Select the Invite button.

Step 7: Enter the name of the person you want to invite and select Send Invitation.

Step 8: As soon as they accept your request, they will be part of your clan.

How to join a clan

If you'd rather skip the effort of making a clan, or are joining late to some friends who are already teamed up, joining a clan in V Rising is dead simple. Here's how it works:

Step 1: Wait or ask for your friend to invite you to their clan.

Step 2: Once the invite pops up, just accept the invitation and you're done!

How to create a custom server

If you've got more than three vampire buddies you want to join up with, there is a way to increase a clan's max size up to 10 members. To do this, you will need to create your own custom server. Not to worry, though — this is much easier than it sounds.

Step 1: Open V Rising and go to the main menu.

Step 2: Select Play and then Private Game.

Step 3: Type in a name for your server and select which game mode you want — in this case PvE.

Step 4: In the Game Settings, adjust the maximum player count for clans from the default of four up to a maximum of 10.

Step 5: Set any other settings you want, and finish by hitting Start New Game.

Step 6: From there, create or join a clan just as you would in the previous sections.

How to get every ending in Lies of P
Pinocchio in Lies of P.

It's no lie that Lies of P is one of the toughest games in the Soulslike genre. Every other puppet and creature in and around the city of Krat will want a piece of this version of Pinocchio, but something inside him is different. The ability to lie is one of the key gameplay and narrative mechanics of the game, and it presents you with many choices throughout the adventure. These aren't just placed there for flavor or as throwaway moments, as they can actually impact the story. Lies of P has three possible endings to get, but unless you're actively going for one, you will be hard-pressed to get them all. Aside from showing different events, some endings offer you some exclusive items that could make your next playthrough a bit easier. We'll guide your conscience to get all the endings in Lies of P.

Starfield: Red Mile location and how to survive
Talking to Mei about the Red Mile in Starfield.

What space game would be complete without a seedy casino somewhere in the galaxy? In Starfield, that is best represented by The Red Mile casino and hotel where those willing to risk their Credits, and their lives, have the chance to strike it rich. Of all the games and entertainment available, the Red Mile challenge is no doubt the most deadly. You're free to visit this planet almost immediately after getting your ship, but this challenge isn't made for a fresh character. Even after you've leveled up, get some decent gear, and feel up to the challenge, the Red Mile Run has a lot of surprises that can cut your run short in the worst possible ways. If you think you're tough enough to make it to the end, here's where to find the Red Mile and the best tips on surviving it.
Where to find the Red Mile

The Red Mile is technically the name of the entire casino-hotel resort, not just the challenge. It is found on the planet Porrima III, which is of course in the Porrima system. You can jump there manually anytime you're exploring, but will also be tasked with going there if you're following the Freestar Collective faction questline.

Is Payday 3 cross-platform?
Four players fight in Payday 3.

The PayDay series made a name for itself among the other contemporary co-op shooters of the time by putting players in the role of criminals attempting to pull off various heists. Each game in the series has upped the ante on more creative and fun places to burgle, break into, and extort for the titular payday. The latest entry, PayDay 3, offers plenty of new content as expected, but retains that core formula of teaming up with friends to coordinate the perfect job. However, it has been many years since the last entry so this will be the first exposure to the series for many players. With the game being available on all platforms, and even included at launch on Game Pass, you may want to stake out this article to learn if PayDay 3 supports cross-play.
Does Payday 3 have crossplay?

Yes, PayDay 3 fully supports crossplay between all platforms, including PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. When booting up the game for the first time you will be prompted on whether or not you want to enable cross-play, so simply accept it and you will be good to go. If you select to not enable it, you can always switch it back on in the settings menu.
