CODE VEIN: The protagonists of the new action adventure of Bandai Namco and Shift fight the forces of evil in a new series of unpublished screenshots
Keita Iizuka and Shift developers re-enter the dark-fantasy dimension of CODE VEIN through a whole new set of screenshots.
The pictures show a few gameplay sections featuring Drain and Louis, two members of the team of heroes who will try to bring the world back to normal by recapturing into the hell the monsters that invaded the planet, transforming it into a land of desolation and death.
The CODE VEIN gaming system and combat mechanics will try to blend the best of the oriental gaming action tradition with the RPG dynamics of the open-world adventures inspired by Dark Souls, as we can guess by watching the frenetic battles portrayed in these last screenshots.
According to the latest information from Bandai Namco, CODE VEIN release is expected in 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
IN THE FACE OF CERTAIN DEATH,WE RISE.
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.
