Code Vein is a hack n' slash action game coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 this year. However, until now, we didn't know if it would really launch in 2018 or be pushed back into 2019. Luckily, a thrilling new trailer cleared that up and provided a concrete release date.
Updated June 5, 2018: Bandai Namco released a new trailer for the United Kingdom which states that all versions should launch on September 28.
Code Vein should release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 27, 2018 and on PC a day later. This is great news for those eagerly awaiting this game. However, considering that the trailer is in Japanese, this could just be the Japanese release date.
The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world following a terrible event that throws humanity into chaos. After huge thorns emerge from the ground, these mysterious objects leave the world is a state of disrepair. What's left of humanity is wiped out by hostile creatures that accompany the thorns.
The only survivors of the cataclysm are now vampires who have to feed on blood in order to stay alive. Trained to wield an array of weapons and supernatural abilities, these vampires try to slay the monsters roaming the streets and harvest their blood. The game appears to be more focused on trying to survive in this harsh environment rather than an epic quest to restore humanity.
If you like challenging action experiences, be sure to keep an eye out on Code Vein. The anime visuals coupled with the tense combat make it unique. Here's hoping that the finished game will live up to everyone's expectations. Bandai Namco also confirmed that Code Vein will be enhanced for Xbox One X when it launches in a few months.
