BARE YOUR FANGS WITH CODE VEIN™, A THRILLING 3RD-PERSON ACTION-RPG FROM BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA INC.

Lust for Blood and Live for Death As You Search for Answers to the Forgotten Past


SANTA CLARA, Calif., (April 20, 2017) – Leading interactive entertainment company BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announces CODE VEIN™ for release on major home consoles in 2018. Feast on the blood of enemies through a journey across a massive interconnected world to unlock its mysterious sanguine past in this thrilling action-RPG.

In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world, as we know it. 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 a third-person action RPG that finds players assuming the role of a Revenant. After stumbling into Vein, players are tasked to embark into the world with a companion picked from the various residents of Vein to uncover lost memories and an exit out of this new demented reality. The world of CODE VEIN is dangerous, full of vicious enemies and monstrous bosses to put players’ combat skills to the test.

Revenants also have access to Blood Veils, devices capable of draining the blood of their enemies in order to enhance their own abilities. Exploiting these enhanced abilities known as Gifts, players can change their form to increase their strength, weaken enemies, and utilize new weapon abilities with overpowered attacks. Utilizing the vast array of weaponry along with each character’s Gift, players can adapt and strategize to a variety of battle conditions that suit their play styles.

“CODE VEIN provides a fresh anime aesthetic and blood-curdling gameplay twists to the popular 3rd-person action RPG genre,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “The talented development team at BANDAI NAMCO Studios is creating a tightly crafted experience filled with plenty of challenge that our fans crave along with a smart and engaging story that is sure to draw players deeper into the world of CODE VEIN. Let the feast begin!”

Wonder what kind of gameplay we can expect. Will it be fast paced like DMC or more like a Souls game, slower? It looks damn nice though. Hopefully Xbox One get's this game too.

Visuals look really good, anime-styled 3D games with good lighting and textures are still a novelty.

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite And if you know your history, that spilled over into America too. "Hill Billies" didn't get that name by accident. There's a very specific reasoning for it. (15 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @jmd749: Yeah. Happened in my country too. Only they used religion and fealty to the monarchy of England as the divider instead of skin colour. Property ownership and jobs were the bribe. (15 Hours ago)

  • jmd749

    jmd749 is not unique to Trump, neither is it new. It's been happening from the days of Jim crow where poor whites were given the illusion of inclusion. The age old divide and conquer play book. (22 Hours ago)

  • jmd749

    jmd749 Yes, agreed. Had they been anything but white nationals they'd have been slaughtered. Chappelle said it best [url] This manipulation of poor white US nationals... (22 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If you storm a building like that and call it a revolution, you better be prepared to die. They clearly weren't or hadn't any clue of what a revolution entails. (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @gigantor21: I found her to be a bit endearing in how naive she was. The police and guards in that building had the power to literally open up and slaughter the lot of them. (1 Day ago)

  • gigantor21

    gigantor21 @MrWhite: That one lady whining about getting maced even though "it's a revolution" was the patron saint of the insurrectionists: entitled, weak and stupid. (1 Day ago)
