Bandai Namco Entertainment released this morning a new trailer for the freshly announced action RPG Code Vein, set for release on major home consoles in 2018, so possibly on Nintendo Switch.
In the post-apocalyptic world of Code Vein, you assume the role of a Revenant, some kind of vampire-ish persona that has access to Blood Veils, devices capable of draining the blood of their enemies in order to enhance their own abilities. You’ll embark into the world with your companion to uncover lost memories and find an exit out of this new demented reality.
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. Wandering aimlessly in search of blood, the Lost will stop at nothing to satisfy their hunger. Team up and embark on a journey to the ends of hell to unlock your past and escape your living nightmare in CODE VEIN.
