Bandai Namco's Code Vein is a vampire game from the God Eater team


Instead of eating gods, now its time to drink blood

That artful trailer Bando Namco put out a few days ago is for Code Vein, a vampire-themed, dungeon-exploring action RPG from the guys who made God Eater. Famitsu reports it will be made in Unreal Engine 4, but with no confirmed platforms announced yet, which we’ll likely learn with its official announcement on April 20. A gameplay trailer will be available in early May. The game itself is 35% done and set to release worldwide in 2018.

The vampires are called “Revenants” who have supernatural abilities and live in an isolated society called ‘Vein.” Revenants have lost their memories and change into monsters called “Lost” when they face blood deficiency.

Code Vein, which is not related to God Eaterand being made on a separate development line from it, is meant to very difficult, so much so that they encourage you to play with a “Buddy” (AI) to make it easier to navigate the seamlessly-connected areas. Of course, real badasses don’t need a buddy system.
