Code Vein, Bandai Namco’s upcoming vampiric Souls-like, will let you customize your own anime-styled bloodsucker with a fairly deep amount of options.
Gender, body type, eye and skin color, hair, “face,” and pupil type are all on the table. You can also customize your characters with face paint, which Bandai Namco inexplicably describes as a “unique feature” in an IGN First video.
As far as wardrobe goes, players can also select the “inner clothes,” which are basically accessories like pouches, glasses, and hats. However, it looks like your main outfit, which is a combination of Bloodborne meets Dracula meets the Matrix, isn’t really customizable.
And with the characters being anime-inspired, you can definitely adjust your character’s chest size, of course.
You can take a look at some of the customization options the game offers in a new video from IGN:
While many people—including us—have been comparing Code Vein to Dark Souls, the customization doesn’t appear to be as deep as From Software’s action RPG series. However, by introducing gameplay mechanics like Blood Veils and Gifts, Code Vein looks like it will (hopefully) provide a distinctive gaming experience all its own.
Code Vein is launching for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in early 2018.
