Gorgeous Code Vein Character Customization Footage Debuts (VIDEO)
Ever since Bandai Namco’s Code Vein was announced earlier this year, many fans of the Dark Souls series have suggested that the upcoming souls-like was merely a cash grab by the publisher, an attempt at filling a hole left by the absence of another Dark Souls title. However, as more details on Code Vein come to light, these same fans are beginning to change their tune. Much in the same way the futuristic souls-like The Surge took the best parts of the Dark Souls series and made it their own, Code Vein looks to be shaping up much in the same way, albeit with a unique artistic style and adorable characters. Additionally, the Code Vein character customization appears to be leaps and bounds ahead of its predecessors, a fact fully on display in the latest Code Vein video from the Tokyo Game Show. Check out the video below; the extensive Code Vein character customization options are shown 44 minutes in.
Toto, I don’t think we’re in Dark Souls anymore. As seen in the above video, the Code Vein character customization options absolutely blows away the limited options available in most of the souls-like games we’ve seen up to this point. Alongside the typical skin tone options and hairstyles – some tame, some appropriately outrageous – players can also choose from hundreds of hair color combinations for both the entire head of hair, and just hair highlights. Players can also choose what percentage each color takes up of their head, an option also available for the character’s eye colors. Additionally, the video also showcased some liberal usage of the built-in ‘bust slider’, which drew some ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ from those watching the video.
Code Vein is slated to arrive in early 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. So, thoughts on the extensive Code Vein character customization?
