Bandai Namco’s long-announced third-person action-adventure RPG Code Vein is finally out now. You can get the game right now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Here’s the launch trailer!
After a year-long delay, Code Vein has finally arrived. Even since its reveal has the action-adventure game been lovingly dubbed by gamers as anime souls, due to its art style and unmistaken inspiration from the Dark Souls franchise. Comparisons are running not that deep however and the game is much more than just a cheap imitation. The biggest differentiator From Software’s games is undoubtedly the presence and importance on a cohesive and traditional story.
Don’t worry though, all the great gameplay elements you’ve come to enjoy from Souls games such as finely crafted melee combat, punishing gameplay loop and larger-than-life bosses are still here. It’s only enhanced by characters and story.
Here’s the official description via Bandai Namco:
The world as we know it is gone. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. Those who remain fight for survival by acquiring Gifts of power in exchange for their memories, and an ever-increasing thirst for blood.
