Code Vein is BANDAI NAMCO’s upcoming third-person action RPG which is slated to be released in 2018. Players assume control of a Revenant – one member of a hidden society, the last stronghold remaining after the collapse of the world following the event surrounding the Thorns of Judgment. Revenants who are blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories are called the Vein. If the Vein give into their bloodlust fully, they risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity. Players embark into the world with a companion picked from the various residents to uncover lost memories and an exit out of the new demented reality. Code Vein hosts a wide variety of vicious enemies and monstrous bosses, a la Dark Souls and Bloodborne, to put the players’ combat skills to the test.
BANDAI NAMCO have released the very first trailer for Code Vein today, which fully captures its beautiful anime-style aesthetics and challenging weapon-based combat. The trailer also teases the companion gameplay mechanic mentioned earlier. Added strategy presents itself when players choose companions who complement their play style against the strong enemies they will face throughout their journey.
Code Veinwill release worldwide in 2018 on all major home consoles.
