Code Vein will feature “a large variety of fields” and challenges

It all began with a mysterious trailer hinting at a new Bandai Namco title. Then on April 20 there was the official announcement for Code Vein, stating that it will be out on “all major consoles” in 2018.

Developers promise a large variety of environments.

It is a long wait and the info that was given at the announcement was not enough for God Eater fans. The new action RPG will feature a race of Revenants, vampire-like beings who must feed on blood in order not to become monsters themselves. They will be using a range of weapons, special gifts as well as their main equipment, “Blood Veils”, used to draw blood from the enemies.

There has been some new info leaked in the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation, and Gematsu was fast enough to already catch it and translate it. So here we go:

  • The game is set in a world where time has passed after it was destroyed by a certain cause. Now, modern society is made up of adjoining lands.
  • Your purpose as a Revenant is to survive. As you fight, you will get closer to the truth of the world.
  • (Presumably referring to the screenshots that have been released…) The protagonist is the short-haired man, and the red-haired man and the woman wearing the Russian hat are NPCs.
  • The player character can be freely customized. Gender can also be set. A wide range of customization is possible, allowing you to make a heroic and cool-looking character.
  • The game will feature growth elements with a very high degree of freedom, allowing you to develop your character in a way that matches your play style.
  • Rather than progress by clearing stages, you’ll explore the world of adjoining lands on your own feet.
  • There are a large variety of fields. Each area has enemies with different characteristics, as well as area-specific mechanics. The volume should be satisfying.
  • Even if your Buddy character dies, you can continue exploring. You can also explore on your own without bringing along a Buddy.
  • The concept of “death” does not exist. Even if you’re out of action, if time passes, you can become active again (retry again from a checkpoint).
  • They’re re not trying to put difficulty at the forefront, but there will be challenges.

It is going to be a long wait until 2018 for Code Vein.
