Bandai Namco has officially unveiled a new action RPG called Code Vein, following a recent teaser that used the tagline “Prepare to Dine.”
Code Vein is described as a grueling action RPG and puts players in the role of a Revenant, who have access to Blood Veils, devices capable of draining the blood of their enemies in order to enhance their own abilities. Using these Blood Veils, players can change their form to increase their strength, weaken enemies, and utilize new weapon abilities with overpowered attacks.
“In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world, as we know it,” the game’s description reads. “Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity’s past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment.
“At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. This final stronghold is where the remaining few fight to survive, blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity.”
Code Vein is scheduled to launch for “major home consoles” in 2018.
