Last week I had a chance to check out Bandai Namco’s 2018 New Year Showcase and got to play Code Vein for the first time. Code Vein is a dungeon crawling, action-RPG in a similar category as Dark Souls or Bloodborne. While the combat might feel familiar to veteran gamers of that genre, Code Vein offers an intriguing anime-like art style and a few nuances all its own, like Mia, who can heal you a few extra times before you fall.
In the video below, captured on a PS4 Pro, I took on a small cave full of humanoid monstrosities before tackling the boss of our short demo: the Queen Knight. It did not go well.
Code Vein is slated for release sometime in 2018 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC from Bandai Namco.
