Today, the upcoming Code Vein gets a new Bloodlust trailer. You can watch it here below:
I’m definitely getting Bloodborne and Dark Souls vibes from this. Not to mention, the art style choice is very interesting and the focus on vampires helps set it apart. Bandai Namco certainly looks to be filling a certain void with the immense appeal of the Souls franchise. Here’s all the information currently released for the game:
In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world, as we know it. Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity’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.
CODE VEIN is a third-person action RPG that finds players assuming the role of a Revenant. After stumbling into Vein, players are tasked to embark into the world with a companion picked from the various residents of Vein to uncover lost memories and an exit out of this new demented reality. The world of CODE VEIN is dangerous, full of vicious enemies and monstrous bosses to put players’ combat skills to the test.
Revenants also have access to Blood Veils, devices capable of draining the blood of their enemies in order to enhance their own abilities. Exploiting these enhanced abilities known as Gifts, players can change their form to increase their strength, weaken enemies, and utilize new weapon abilities with overpowered attacks. Utilizing the vast array of weaponry along with each character’s Gift, players can adapt and strategize to a variety of battle conditions that suit their play styles.
Code Vein is scheduled to release sometime in 2018 however, no specific platforms have been announced. The release trailer description only says “major home consoles“, so with that said we’ll just have to wait and see. Hopefully we’ll find out more soon.
