Last week Bandai Namco teased us with a trailer and the tagline: ‘Prepare to Dine’. And if you haven’t seen it yet:
Here’s a brief overview of the narrative from Bandai Namco:
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.
This third-person action RPG will have players assume the role of a Revenant, with access to Blood Veils, devices capable of draining the blood of their enemies in order to enhance their own abilities. Along with the vast array of weaponry available, players can adapt their Revenants to suit their play styles.
Code Vein will be released on major home consoles in 2018.
