Code Vein was teased via a short video. An official worldwide reveal is set for April 20.
The game is set in a near future where everything has gone to ruin. Players are Revenants, vampires that possess supernatural abilities, that will take on the truth of the world while working together with allies.
In order to survive, Revenants live in an isolated society called "Vein." The Revenant is a being that has transcended humanity, but as a result has lost most of their memories. A Revenant who is short on blood will turn into a monster called a "Lost."
One of the main features of Code Vein is the "Buddy" system. When exploring dungeons, you can bring a single partner along.
Revenants mainly use close-range weapons such as great swords and one-handed swords. Other weapons such as spears and hammers also exist.
Staff working on the project includes:
Producer: Keita Iizuka
Director: Hiroshi Yoshimura
Project Team Leader: Yusuke Tomizawa
Development is currently 35 percent complete. A trailer will be revealed shortly, likely when the game is officially announced on April 20.
