WATCH: Code Vein Underworld Trailer Features The Playable Anime You Didn’t Know You Wanted
Fans of Dark Souls may have been pleased to discover that publisher Bandai Namco has a similar title in the works, with a bit of a twist. While Code Vein is still a ways off from being released, a new trailer titled Code Vein Underworld shows off the beautifully designed game while revealing the dark tales underneath.
The new Code Vein trailer, dubbed “Underworld”, features a song by the band “Vamps” with the same title. Viewers are given a bit of story as we are treated to beautifully hand-drawn cinematics and gameplay that is reminiscent of Dark Souls with some Nier Automata thrown in. The video can be viewed below:
As featured in the Code Vein trailer above, there is plenty of hack and slash style gameplay to accompany an interesting yet dark story. Given the gameplay elements that are reminiscent of the Dark Souls series, it may be that Bandai Namco Studios is looking at distilling all the experience garnered from Dark Souls and infusing it into a more anime-esque title. If that is the case, this will be a must-have when it releases. Here is a synopsis of the game for those who want to know more:
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. Wandering aimlessly in search of blood, the Lost will stop at nothing to satisfy their hunger. Team up and embark on a journey to the ends of hell to unlock your past and escape your living nightmare in CODE VEIN.”
While the Code Vein Underworld trailer doesn’t offer a release date, fans can expect it sometime next year. The latest title from Bandai Namco will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Keep up with Don’t Feed the Gamers as more information about Code Vein is released.
