Bandai Namco launched a new trailer for their dungeon crawling RPG Code Vein, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam on September 27.
The trailer introduces Oliver Collins, a revenant who takes the time to help out the player out in the early parts of the game’s story. However, fate has other plans for Oliver as he is consumed by the Lost and loses his soul. Sadly, this turns him into something that isn’t human and players will meet him again later in the game, but he is not the helpful human he once was.
Code Vein is an action adventure game where players will be able to craft their own weapons and customize their experience by fine-tuning their character’s playstyle during the game’s dark and gritty narrative. We had the chance to play through the during the recent Network Test and saw that it definitely borrows some elements of Dark Souls, but it does enough to make itself stand out in the genre. The game focuses heavily on character growth and weapon customization as the player searches from Blood Beads in a post-apocalyptic world.
There’s also a partner that joins the player’s journey, but that doesn’t stop the game from being fairly difficult, which is something that fans seem to enjoy. The game also has a pretty interesting story that is revealed throughout exploration as well as an online co-op mode.
