We’re not sure what to think about Code Vein just yet. None of the gameplay footage that’s been shown so far has looked great, and that continues to be true with the title’s third trailer. Many will be drawn in by the anime aesthetic, of course, but it all just seems a bit edgy to us – and it’s not helped by the Saliva-inspired soundtrack.
That said, we really enjoy the Dark Souls format, and this is one of the more stylish copycats that we’ve seen since the series blew up. The jury’s still out, then – but we’re keeping an open mind. The title’s set to release in Early 2018 on the PlayStation 4.
