Announced last month, Bandi Namco's Code Vein received a new trailer during this year's Xbox E3 Briefing. The "dramatic exploring action role-playing game", which will release in 2018, will be coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC at launch.
Set in the "not too distant future", the player is one of the few blessed with the Gifts of power (in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood) who fight to survive in a world that has been destroyed by a mysterious disaster. From the Code Vein page on the Xbox site, the game is said to feature the following traits:
Unite to survive
Featuring a story driven connected dungeon experience, dive into the world of CODE VEIN. Create your own character and choose your partner as you venture out into a world of destruction, overrun by the Lost. Change the feel of the game depending on which partner you choose, each with their own combat style and background story.
Beneath the veil
Experience the power of blood as you use unique Blood Veils to drain your enemies to enhance your abilities. Using “Gifts” powered by enemy blood, players can increase their strength, weaken enemies, and utilize new weapon abilities and overpowered attacks.
Great challenge brings greater rewards
Take on the Lost as you explore the malefic world of CODE VEIN. Choose from a myriad of weapons such as bayonets, axes and spears, to accommodate your favorite battle style. Apply strategy in your attacks through partnered coordination and Blood Veil enhancements, ready to bring down the most threatening enemies.
Code Vein is releasing in 2018 to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
