Code Vein will now release in 2019 rather than the originally planned release date of 28th September 2018, as confirmed by Bandai Namco Entertainment.
The post-apocalyptic, anime Souls-style action RPG will allow players to craft their own unique character and customise their experience by equipping numerous weapons, items, skills and gifts to complement their preferred fighting style. There will also be various AI partners with their own specialised attributes and personalities.
The game has received so much positive feedback from fans through various pre-release promotional campaigns, but it is said that Bandai Namco Entertainment wants to deliver a more polished version of the game. Bandai Namco Entertainment also confirmed that Code Vein will no longer be playable at Gamescom 2018 whilst they make improvements but did confirm that they will be revealing more hands-on opportunities very soon.
Code Vein will be available in both Standard and Collectors editions.
The Collectors edition is set to include:
- An exclusive 17 cm figurine of Mia Karnstein with her deadly Blood Veil
- Digital content with access to the original soundtrack,
- A digital art book
- An in-game customisation set – The Insatiable Bloodthirst for all characters
Also, those who pre-order the game from participating retailers will be able to gain access to the special blood veil Venous Claw and the Accessory Set; including communication stamps for multiplayer, customisation elements for a new unique look and Harbinger – a blood code offering special characteristics to its owner. They will also get three crossover weapons from Bandai Namco’s successful IP God Eater.
Code Vein will be available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC sometime in 2019. Are you planning on picking up a copy? Let us know below!
