Code Vein PS4 PlayStation 4 1

You may have seen Bandai Namco released a teaser trailer for a new title last week, and now it's been officially announced as an action role-playing game named Code Vein, which is set to release on as of yet unspecified platforms. It's probably safe to assume that the PlayStation 4 will be one of the consoles that the title comes to.

While an official worldwide reveal is slated for 20th April, the game sounds a little like Dark Souls if we dare draw the comparison. You'll assume the role of a Revenant, a vampire with access to supernatural abilities. Judging by a translation of the Famitsu coverage, it sounds like if you don't feast on enough blood, you'll transform into a monster, though it's not entirely clear what gameplay implications this will have.

The interesting thing here is that it's being created by some of the key personnel behind the God Eater games, and is being built using Unreal Engine 4. Apparently, production is currently 35 per cent complete, with a release not planned until at least 2018. Sounds intriguing, though – almost like Anime Souls, we suppose. Consider our interest piqued.
