Bandai Namco recently teased a new game and those of you who got vibes of Dark Souls and God Eater from it weren’t too far off, as the game has been announced in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine as Code Vein, a dungeon-exploring action RPG.
Code Vein is a completely new title by Bandai Namco. It is described as a dungeon exploring-type hard action RPG. Players take on the role of “Revenants,” vampires with supernatural abilities, and team up with allies to seek out the truth of the world.
The Revenants are part of an isolated company called “Vein” that helps them survive. While the Revenants are beings that transcend human beings, they’ve lost most of their memories. When Revenants face blood deficiency, they transform into monsters called “Lost.”
The main characteristic of Code Vein is “Buddy.” This allows you to take one partner while exploring dungeons.
Revenants mostly use great swords, single-handed swords, and other close-ranged weapons as their go-to in battle. There are also other weapon types such as spears and hammers.
