There’s a Bloodlust Brewing in This Code Vein Trailer

Today we have the debut trailer for Bandai Namco’s upcoming hackathon, Code Vein. Surprise surprise, it looks amazing in motion, far more so than the still images, which is to be expected, since it’s running on Unreal Engine 4.

Still no confirmation of a PC port at this time, but Game Debate has a listing for it, which I’d take with a very large pinch of salt. Minimum requirements of Windows XP..? I mean, it’s not impossible, but let’s wait for something more concrete. Which is almost certain to come, since it’s by the same team that made God Eater, which is now available on Steam.

Gameplay is rather similar, shockingly enough, but with a much larger emphasis on being brutal and more than a tad bit bloody. Code Vein is currently set for release some time in 2018.

Official Press Release

Richmond, LONDON: 2nd May, 2017 – BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe today released the first trailer for their upcoming action-RPG title CODE VEIN, releasing worldwide in 2018.

The new trailer highlights the mysterious and captivating universe along with a quick look at the challenging weapon-based combat found in CODE VEIN. The trailer also teases the companion gameplay mechanic. As players venture out into the world, they will be able to choose a partner companion from the various residents of Vein. Added strategy presents itself when players choose companions that compliments their play style to give them a fighting chance against the vicious enemies they’ll be up against through their journey.

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.
