This follow-up from the previous reports linked up above from Gematsu regarding the distress signal is just what many fans were hoping for. The summoning in Dark Souls is a feature that is highly regarded, and it makes the optional experience more of a challenge should players participate.
According to our previous coverage:
"Different forms of communication are also available in the game’s multiplayer component that consist of custom emotes made up of various actions. Gestures, stamps, and voices are all actions that can be bundled into an emote that can be saved for future use to share tactical information and will just as likely be used to goof off when summoning another player.
Two new characters were also revealed alongside the multiplayer info, characters named Karen and Chris Silva. These characters are connected to the QUEEN Project, a part of the game’s story that consists of experiments conducted that were centered around the game’s blood-hungry characters. Blood plays a central role in Code Vein with Blood Veils used to drain enemies, enhance abilities, and using the Gifts mentioned previously."
