Following the reveal of Bandai Namco’s dark vampire title Code Vein yesterday, new images and details have surfaced.
Bandai Namco released an official synopsis for the upcoming third-person action-rpg, along with some image (below):
“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.”
As a Revenant, players can make use of items called Blood Veils, which drain the blood of enemies to enhance the player’s abilities, known as Gifts.
“Players can change their form to increase their strength, weaken enemies, and utilize new weapon abilities with overpowered attacks,” Bandai Namco said. “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 still in development with only 30% of the game being done at the moment. The release did state that Code Vein will launch on major home consoles, but did not specify.
