What you need to know
- Code Vein is a role-playing game about vampires with gameplay inspired by Dark Souls.
- The game should release on September 27 this year.
- It was pushed back by a year to polish up the experience.
- You can preorder it on Amazon for $60.
During the "Inside Xbox" at E3 2019, it was revealed that Bandai Namco's Code Vein should launch this September. Oddly enough, it was supposed to release in September 2018, before it was pushed back by a year. The game is a Bloodborne-like experience which features an anime aesthetic.
While we don't know a lot about the game, we do know that it takes place in a world inhabited by vampires. The description says the following.
Create your own character and choose your partner as you venture out into a world of destruction, overrun by the 'Lost.' Use your combined strength to coordinate your approach and defend each other from surprise attacks or overpowered enemies using your 'Blood Veil' and various weapons. Change the feel of the game depending on which partner you choose, each with their own combat style and background story.
The game just went up for digital preorder on Xbox One. You can always purchase the standard edition for $60, but if you want the season pass and some exclusvie in-game items, you'll want to go with the $80 Deluxe Edition. As with any major "AAA" game nowdays, it's Xbox One X Enhanced. It's unclear what the resolution and frame rate are at this time.
