Code Vein is a weird game, but in a good way. The blood-infused story about a group of immortal undead fighting back against an out-of-control blood plague is an extremely interesting setup. And with that setup comes a lot of comparisons to Dark Souls. We’ll have to wait and see until the full release whether that comparison is apt, but at least we know when the game is coming out, finally.
During E3 2019, Bandai Namco has announced that Code Vein will be debuting on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 27, 2019. To help promote this announcement, the developer has released a new gameplay trailer, which can be seen below.
Bamco has been pumping this game with infusions of hype for months now, so fans will finally get to sink their teeth into the title later this year. If you want to see more of the game, why not take a gander at new combat abilities and gear mods in the game. But that’s just the beginning. There’s new trailers also showing Revenants like Io, Louis, Yakumo and so many more. Each character has their own story and motivations, and unlocking their past may well be part of the game experience here, we’ll have to wait for release to find out.
Official description from Bandai Namco:
“The world as we know it is gone. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. Those who remain fight for survival by acquiring Gifts of power in exchange for their memories, and an ever-increasing thirst for blood. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost; fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity who wander aimlessly in search of blood. Team up and embark on a journey to the ends of hell to unlock your past and escape your living nightmare in Code Vein.”
