Today Bandai Namco showcased a brand new batch of rather lovely screenshots of the upcoming Souls-like action-JRPG Code Vein.
We get to see more of Yakumo, one of the companions that will accompany us in our adventure. He’s a powerful fighter that used to belong to a paramilitary organization under Mido’s orders. He hates Mido, as he was a victim of his experiments. We also meet Emily Su, another of the soldiers part of Yakumo’s unit, also a victim of Mido’s experiments. They have been separated at the time of the great collapse, and Yakumo has been looking for her ever since.
More screenshots show two dungeons, the City of Falling Flame and the Ridge of Frozen Souls. The City of Falling Flame is fully invaded by the thorns of judgment, and by raging flames, that serve as obstacles. There we will meet enemies named Blazing Radicals, and the fearsome boss named Successor of the Claw.
More images show attacks that can be executed while using the hammer-type weapons. The first is aptly named Huge Hammer Charge, while the second is Impulse Anchor.
You can check out the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy a recent trailer and another batch of screenshots. Recently, we got an update on development and on the developers’ ambitions to grow the game into a franchise.
Code Vein will release sometime in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you’re interested, you can pre-order it on Amazon.
