Vampire Survivors is a gothic horror casual game with rogue-lite elements, where your choices can allow you to quickly snowball against the hundreds of monsters that get thrown at you.

Mow down thousands of night creatures and survive until dawn!

Vampire Survivors is a time survival game with minimalistic gameplay and roguelite elements.

Hell is empty, the devils are here, and there's no place to run or hide. All you can do is survive as long as you can until death inevitably puts an end to your struggles. Gather gold in each run to buy upgrades and help the next survivor

Developer studio poncle has announced that Vampire Survivors will finally make its way onto PlayStation5 and PlayStation4 this Summer! The base game will feature all the latest updates and all four DLCs will also be available for purchase on PS5 and PS4 at launch too.

On top of that, Vampire Survivors is joining forces with KONAMI’s iconic Contra series in a new DLC that’s a blast from the past – emphasis on the blast.

It’s called Vampire Survivors: Operation Guns and will be available on all current platforms (Xbox One, Xbox S/X, Steam, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android) from 9th May for $2.49 / €2.49 / £1.99 (check local market for your pricing), with PS to follow later. The President’s cousin’s sister’s dog has been kidnapped by Red Falcon. Are you bad enough to come to the rescue? 

Assemble a squad of classic Characters and arm yourself with an explosive arsenal of arcade weaponry in Vampire Survivors: Operation Guns. Blast through thousands of fearsome foes and bonkers bosses from throughout the lauded lineage of Contra games. Persist determinedly through prodigious stages inspired by iconic KONAMI series, but be prepared for a bullet-hell of a fight, as the future of the Earth itself rests on your large, muscular shoulders.

Operation Guns embraces the visceral simplicity of classic Contra, with build-focused Characters that encourage min-maxing and stat manipulation, a tonne of weapons (we're talking 20 including evolutions!), and a difficulty curve that combines quintessentially arcade-hard gameplay with the original Vampire Survivors formula.
