Code Vein is an upcoming new video game from the company that published the critically acclaimed Dark Souls series, Namco Bandai Entertainment. It is an action role-playing game just like Dark Souls but also has more influences than just the genre and game play style.
Now even though it borrows the combat style system fighting and the RPG elements of the inspired series, the art style is more borrowed from anime and the God Hand series. It is a very dramatic, intense and dark game with exploration and many RPG elements thrown in, much like the Dark Souls games. The trailer even uses a line that is similar “Prepare to Dine” as a tagline to nod to the apparent spiritual predecessor.
There’s still a lot unknown and unseen about this game but it’s very much showing to be Bandai Namco’s next big intense RPG to fill in the slot as Dark souls has been finishing up with it’s DLC. Hopefully Code Vein is amazing as we hope it to be.
