About CODE VEIN

About this game

Enter the near-futuristic world of CODE VEIN from BANDAI NAMCO.

Enter The World Of CODE VEIN 

CODE VEIN is a hardcore anime RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world where skyscrapers serve as reminders of humanity’s past. This mysterious disaster has brought about the downfall of civilization and left the few remaining survivors struggling to survive, thanks to Blood Veils that grant them powerful Gifts in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood. 

Taste Blood

Players must bravely explore this hellish landscape in search of the white sparkling roots of the Blood Springs to obtain Blood Beads, which will help them quench their thirst without turning into one of the Lost — fearsome vampire-like ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity. The game puts players in control of customisable characters, allowing them to choose from three fighting code classes: Fighter, Ranger or Caster. AI companions can aid players during combat and be tailored to suit their individual playstyle needs. 

Character Creation & Combat 

In CODE VEIN, players create and customise their own character and then pick a fighting code class to best suit their style. Players can choose from close-quarter combat (Fighter), long-range weaponry (Ranger) or powerful magic (Caster). They are able to use Blood Veils equipped with items such as clothing that help form brutal attacks on foes. In addition, an AI companion is available throughout the journey who can provide assistance with healing actions during battles against enemies and bosses alike.   

Unlock Your Past

Team up with your AI companion and embark on an epic quest through hell as you struggle to unlock your past and escape your living nightmare in CODE VEIN. As you venture further into this treacherous world, you must locate the white sparkling roots of the Blood Springs so that you can find enough Blood Beads to quench your thirst without becoming one of the Lost. Armed with powerful weapons formed from Blood Veils, only those brave enough can face off against monstrous enemies and bosses while they seek out answers hidden within the depths of hell itself.

Critic Reviews

75
7 / 10
"Code Vein takes some interesting chances with Soulslike mechanics and finds mixed results, but there's something worth sinking your teeth into here."
8 / 10
"There was a lot of potential for Code Vein to end up little more than a mediocre Dark Souls clone dressed in anime clothing, and yet, it's actually kinda, sorta, pretty good....

Attack of the Fanboy

William Schwartz
"If you go into Code Vein thinking that you're going to get something on the level of any of the Souls games (or Bloodborne) you're going to be a little bit disappointed."

As a fan of the souls series and many other souls likes I have really been enjoying this game. The addition of a map is so nice and the flexibility to switch between different 'classes' is also another really neat addition. The combat hasn't been super challenging outside of learning the boss fights I have done so far, but its also enough challenge and all of the buffs/special abilities keep it interesting. If you enjoyed any of the souls games, but want something a little more friendly as far as a map, class flexibility, more options as far as buffs/debuffs this is definitely worth checking out.

A very mediocre soulborne with anime characters and the worst level design I have ever seen, almost like they tried to translate 2D JRPG in a 3D action rpg. Buy only if heavily discounted.

Can get repetitive, but the character customization, companions, and blood abilities all make for a creative and unique souls-like experience.

Great souls/adventure game. The combat feels really good and exploration is really rewarding. Some areas are more interesting than others but in general is a really fun game.
