When we last checked, Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia had just given us some initial info on Code Vein and all we knew was that it had a vampiric theme, it was an Action RPG, and it looked FREAKIN AWESOME. Now, we finally have the game’s first trailer to see all of it come together in motion and OMG, it looks even better than before!
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.
Yup. The game features all the goodness of Anime-ish Art direction along with Dark Souls kind of combat. Character designs are very anime-inspired and yet they blend well within the beautifully designed backdrops and environments that the game has to offer.
Then you have HUGE Enemies and Bosses that you fight in a combat system that’s very reminiscent of the Souls Franchise. You roll, dodge, counter-attack, pray that you don’t die, and pray that your opponent dies first. Fun times all around :p
We’re all speechless with just how stunning the game looks! We look forward to the game’s release come 2018 and hope that it fills the Dark Souls-shaped void in our hearts. For more news and developments for Code Vein, be sure to keep it here in UnGeek and we’ll bring you any developments on the game as it comes. Till next time, guys! Keep on gaming!
