Action RPG due out in early 2018.

Code Vein

Bandai Namco has released the third official trailer and a new set of screenshots for Code Vein, its upcoming action RPG from its staff behind the God Eater series.

The trailer highlights the game’s opening song “Underworld” from the Japanese rock duo Vamps, as well as the opening animation from the Japanese animation studio Ufotable.

Here is an overview of the game, via Bandai Namco:


In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has caused the collapse of the world as we know it. Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity’s past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. This final stronghold is where the remaining few fight to survive, blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood.

Key Features
