Opening VPK files

Did your computer fail to open a VPK file? We explain what VPK files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your VPK files.

What is a VPK file?

The .vpk file extension is most commonly associated with the Verge3 game engine. This game engine was created to help developers design rpgs, although it can be used to create almost any game in the SuperNintendo or Genesis style. The VPK files are written in the C++ programming language, allowing for greater flexibility.

The .vpk file extension is also used for Steam NCF Valve Pak archive files and EverQuest II game archive files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
