Bandai Namco is giving gamers a first look at the upcoming action-RPG, Code Vein.
The new trailer highlights the mysterious universe found in Code Vein along with a quick look at the game’s weapon-based combat. The trailer also teases the game’s companion gameplay mechanic. As players venture out into the world, they will be able to choose a partner companion from the various residents of Vein. Added strategy presents itself when players choose companions that complement their play style to give them a fighting chance against the vicious enemies they’ll be up against through their journey.
Check it out:
The game takes place in the not too distant future after 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. It's 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. If one gives into the bloodlust fully, one risks becoming one of the Lost -- fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity.
Bandai Namco says Code Vein will release in 2018. They have not yet unveiled onto which platforms the game will be released.
