Bandai Namco released a new trailer for their post-apocalyptic Dark Souls-inspired vampire game, Code Vein.
The new trailer gives us another look at both the game’s gameplay mechanics as well as some of the monsters players will be facing off against. While the game’s combat is clearly inspired by the Dark Souls series, there is no doubt that it’s unique setting and anime-visuals set it apart from FromSoftware’s title. Another element that sets the game apart from the series that inspired it is the NPC mechanic which lets players travel through the hostile environments accompanied by an NPC companion each with their own unique set of abilities. Oh, and did I mention you play as a vampire? This course means that you get access to a whole slew of awesome vampire-based skills and abilities.
Code Vein is set for release in 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
