Code Vein is under development. Or so Bandai Namco announced a couple of weeks back. Having already evolved into one of the most anticipated action RPGs of 2018, the publisher has more info to tease us with:
CODE VEIN is a third-person action RPG that finds players assuming the role of a Revenant. After stumbling into Vein, players are tasked to embark into the world with a companion picked from the various residents of Vein to uncover lost memories and an exit out of this new demented reality. The world of CODE VEIN is dangerous, full of vicious enemies and monstrous bosses to put players’ combat skills to the test.
A secret society comprising Revenants called “Vein” exists in what appears to be a post-apocalyptic world. Here, the Lost wander aimlessly to satiate their thirst for blood. As a result, players will “team up” (possible allusion to co-op mode?) and “unlock the past”.
For fans of character customization in open world RPGs, Bandai Namco has responded. You can create your own character and choose your “partner” as you roam the land in hopes to escape. Additionally, players can use their weapons – and the Blood Veil – to protect themselves. While the concept of the Blood Veil is intriguing, it is expected that this power will allow us to drain enemies’ power.
