Bandai Namco has released the first gameplay trailer for their upcoming Dark Souls inspired game Code Vein.
The new Code Vein gameplay trailer reveals that the game takes quite a bit of inspiration from From Software’s Dark Souls series. From the huge bosses to the “dodge for your life” mechanic, it seems like a more blood-soaked version of the popular (yet hard as nails) game. This, of course, isn’t a bad thing as the Dark Souls franchise and its mechanics were loved (yet also hated) by many.
Code Vein sees players taking on the role of a Revenant in a world full of vicious enemies. Players will be able to extract blood from enemies in order to boost their abilities. They will also be able to change their form to increase their strength, and utilize new weapons.
According to Bandai Namco, it will also place quite a bit of focus on the player’s companion character. Players will be able to choose a companion that will compliment their specific play style.
