Code Vein promises a brutal game style that has often been compared to that of the ever popular Dark Souls franchise, but with an anime twist. The latest JRPG from Bandai Namco offers a unique experience with expert character customization, an unforgiving narrative, and much, much more. The latest trailer keeps up with that theme and offers a more immersive look at the characters and gameplay that players can expect.

Stunning cinematic after cinematic was featured in the latest video and gives a more up close and personal look at the bosses that players will face, characters they will be working alongside, and more inside the world of the NPCs that populate the world within Code Vein.

According to the official website:

"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. Wandering aimlessly in search of blood, the Lost will stop at nothing to satisfy their hunger. Team up and embark on a journey to the ends of hell to unlock your past and escape your living nightmare in CODE VEIN."

Unfortunately, there is no set release date for the upcoming title though it is slated for a 2018 release. Great challenge, greater rewards - Code Vein is shaping up to be quite the adventure.
