First "Code Vein" Trailer Shows a Bleak End for Humanity

Worldwide release planned for 2018

Following up on the initial reveal from a couple weeks ago, Bandai Namco unveiled the first trailer for action-RPG Code Vein, which comes from some of the folks behind the God Eater series. In addition to cinematics, the preview offers a brief peek at combat, the companion mechanic, and some of the nasty-looking enemies you'll be facing along the way.




In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world as we know it. Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity’s past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. This final stronghold is where the remaining few fight to survive, blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity.
