Bandai Namco has released a bunch of new information on their upcoming title, Code Vein.
The game is being developed in the Unreal Engine 4 and by the folks who brought us the God Eater series Keita Iizuka, Hiroshi Yoshimura, and Yusuke Tomizawa. Code Vein is set in the future, where the player is part of the Revenants, a group that barely managed to survive. These Revenants rely on blood to maintain their human form. If they are low on blood, they transform into a monster known as the “Lost” who possess powers to help them consume.
Thirty new screenshots of the game have been posted to their official Facebook page, but we managed to snag a few of the pictures to show you here. As you can see from the images below, the game certainly looks beautiful as it utilizes the power of Unreal Engine 4. We can’t wait to see more of the game as it is revealed over the coming months.
“Get ready to Bare Your Fangs in CODE VEIN, coming to major home consoles in 2018. Lust for Blood and Live for Death As You Search for Answers to the Forgotten Past. In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world as we know it.” Bandai Namco says in a blog post. “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. Embark on a journey to the ends of hell to unlock your past and escape your living nightmare in CODE VEIN.”
Bandai Namco’s development teams are still hard at work in developing the game, which is said to be 35% complete. We assume that the game will be made available for the Xbox One and Playstation 4, with support for the Playstation 4 Pro and Project Scorpio, but nothing other than “coming to major home consoles” has been announced at this time.
Code Vein is scheduled to release in 2018.
