Bandai Namco released some new gameplay footage of Code Vein, the game heavily influenced by the Souls series now in development for PC and consoles.
The new footage, which can be watched below, showcases some of the game's features such as combat, which definitely will look familiar to all fans of From Software's games, as well as story and much more.
Our own Chris recently had the chance to try out a fresh build of the game, and he was quite impressed with what he played.
It was a game that, despite the more fast-paced combat, required thought. Blocking, manoeuvring and striking, managing your stamina as well as your ichor – an element that acts like mana, used when activating abilities – is a constant thought. Getting to a higher level helps this, as do some passive abilities, but it should always be on your mind. Plus, going back to something I said earlier, style helps. It all looked fantastic, from the attacks of enemies and yourself to the environment, it’s all enhanced by the design.
Code Vein launches before the end of the year on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We will let you know when the game launches as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
