Now, the first Code Vein trailer has dropped, giving new insight into the its visually interesting characters in motion and revealing a few moments of the title’s action-heavy gameplay. One aspect in particular shows off a companion mechanic that adds a layer of strategy to the usual monster-slaying proceedings. Check out the trailer for yourself below, followed by the description of the title:
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.”
Code Vein is set to release in 2018 for the current generation of consoles, but which exact platforms Bandai Namco are aiming for is currently unknown. When last checked, progress on Code Vein was moving along smoothly past an estimated 35% completion, according to the main development team.
