Code Vein - New Vampire Action RPG

by Silver, 2017-04-18 23:14:03

@TechRaptor Code Vein is a new action rpg from Bandai Namco which sees you take on the role of Vampires. No platforms have been confirmed but it is 'coming to console'.

Bandai Namco had people all excited last week when they release a teaser trailer carrying the tagline ‘Prepare to Dine.' The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has revealed that this is not, as many had anticipated, the next From Software game. Ahead of the official 20th of April reveal, information from Japanese blogger Hachima Kikou reported by Gematsu has confirmed that the project is titled Code Vein and will be a "dungeon exploration-type, hard action RPG" from developer Shift. You may know Shift as Bandai Namco's in-house developer behind the God Eater series.


Further information from Weekly Famitsu also goes into the setting and premise of the game. Players will take on the role of Vampires known as Revenants and will use supernatural abilities to ‘take on the truth of the world while working together with allies.' Revenants are described as having transcended humanity but at the cost of their memory. It also seems they will be reliant on blood to survive, as those who are short on blood become monsters known as ‘Lost.'
