FromSoftware’s has been an inspiration for so many Dark Souls like game including Lords of The Fallen, The Surge, Salt and Sanctuary.These game are great there’s no denying the fact but none of them manage to be as good as the Soul Series.
And now we have yet another Dark Soul inspired game from Bandai Namco titled Code Vein. Now that players have no Dark Soul games to look forward to this could well be the game all Darks Soul fans go to.
Code Vein is a third-person action RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world developed by Shift and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. The game will have a massively interconnected world for players to explore. In Code Vein, you play as being known as Revenants that feed on blood to power special abilities known as gifts.
The game has players defeating demonic souls along with an ally which can be recruited using the companion system. Players use their character to feed on blood which gives their character access to a range of supernatural powers. These gifts can be customised and also upgraded.
We have four different characters in Code Vein. First of we have Mia Karnstein a female revenant who is being accompanied by her younger brother.This female character uses a bayonet-style weapon that can be used to attack at a distance.Yakumo Shinonome a former mercenary, is a revenant who keeps his cool during combat. Louis probably the most agile and definitely the quickest among the lot , is a revenant who uses a one-handed sword to slaughter his enemies. Finally we have Io, another female revenant with no memories of her past exploring in the wilderness with our protagonist who knows him all too well.
The game is expected to be released in 2018.
