After announcing their upcoming project last week, Bandai Namco finally unveiled the debut trailer for upcoming action-RPG title, Code Vein, which is currently set for a 2018 release on “major home consoles”. While it doesn’t clearly state the targeted platforms, it’s a safe bet that it’s coming at least to PS4 and Xbox One.
The new video showcases the game’s mysterious universe all the while giving a glimpse at the game’s combat. Code Vein also allows players to choose a Vein resident to tag along during their adventure. Choosing a companion that compliments your play style will give them a chance against the horde of enemies.
Code Vein is set in the not too distant future where a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world. Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanityâ€™s past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein.
This final stronghold is where the remaining few fight to survive, blessed with gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity.
