CODE VEI N

Fang-tas­tic

Games Master - - Preview Eyes-on With Future Hits! - SG

Now that From Soft­ware has moved on to non-Dark Souls pas­tures, Bandai Namco is look­ing to fill the hole left in its li­brary. En­ter Code Vein, a vam­pire-themed, post-apoc­a­lyp­tic, anime-style ac­tion-RPG with many of the Dark Souls/Blood­borne trap­pings: slow, de­lib­er­ate, and me­thod­i­cal hack­ing and slash­ing; pun­ish­ing en­e­mies and bosses; maybe some ex­quis­ite en­vi­ron­men­tal sto­ry­telling? It cer­tainly looks very dif­fer­ent from any of From’s games, for bet­ter or worse, and the com­pan­ion sys­tem cer­tainly is novel. Lit­tered through­out the game are var­i­ous char­ac­ters you can pick to ac­com­pany you on your ad­ven­ture. They all have dif­fer­ent weapons and abil­i­ties so you’ll need to choose wisely.

There’s also a ro­bust char­ac­ter cre­ator so you can make your own anime goth boy or girl. Ex­pect to be don­ning lots and lots of black leather.
