Bandai Namco’s anime Souls-ish-like, Code Vein, has been quietly turning heads and generating interest for a while now. And now, it finally has a release date. The game lands on September 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Code Vein is basically a vampire story, where people need to consume blood in order to prevent themselves for turning into the kind of monster-things that the others hunt down. It’s unlikely that it will win awards for originality on that premise, but with its stylish art style and the slick action that we see in the trailer, this one should find itself some fans at launch.
Key features of the game include:
Unite to Survive – Featuring a story driven connected dungeon experience, dive into the world of Code Vein. Create your own character and choose your partner as you venture out into a world of destruction, overrun by the Lost. Change the feel of the game depending on which partner you choose, each with their own combat style and background story.
Beneath the Veil – Experience the power of blood as you use unique Blood Veils to drain your enemies to enhance your abilities. Using “Gifts” powered by enemy blood, players can increase their strength, weaken enemies, and utilize new weapon abilities and overpowered attacks.
Great Challenge Brings Greater Rewards – Take on the Lost as you explore the malefic world of Code Vein. Choose from a myriad of weapons such as bayonets, axes and spears, to accommodate your favorite battle style. Apply strategy in your attacks through partnered coordination and Blood Veil enhancements, ready to bring down the most threatening enemies.
Keen? Not much longer to wait for this one, which looks like it’ll be one of Bandai’s biggest through the holiday season this year.
