From Software’s iconic Dark Souls series has inspired other similar titles since its launch. Lords of The Fallen, The Surge, Salt and Sanctuary. All of these are great games in their own right, yet none of them quite live up to the original idea.
Bandai Namco’s Code Vein is the latest, a Soulsborne-inspired romp set in a post-apocalyptic anime world. With the Dark Souls series finished, at least for now, this could be the next best thing.
Code Vein is a third-person action RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a cataclysmic event. Developed by the minds behind the God Eater series, it will combine challenging combat with a massively interconnected world for players to explore. In Code Vein you play as beings known as Revenants. These are vampire-like people who must feast on blood to power special abilities known as gifts.
