Now Playing: Code Vein - Release Date Announcement Trailer

Code Vein

As if there weren't enough Souls games already, Bandai Namco has announced the release date for its Souls-like RPG, Code Vein. The game is scheduled to launch on September 28, following the releases of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (September 4), Spider-Man (September 7), Shadow of the Tomb Raider (September 12), and the Spyro Reignited Trilogy (September 21). It seems September is a pretty jammed-packed month this year, and E3 2018 is still just a week away.

Back in October of last year, we had a chance to check out Code Vein, saying, "Dubbed 'anime Dark Souls' by many, it draws heavy influence from From Software's acclaimed Souls series, most notably in its difficulty." Around the same time, we learned that Code Vein will not feature an easier difficulty setting. Instead, you'll be able to "freely change your character's Blood Code during the course of the game, allowing you adjust your character's stats to adapt to new challenges."

And, of course, in similar Souls fashion, Code Vein will feature online co-op. "You can send out a distress signal to summon a different player," but "this player will have to fulfill 'certain conditions,' although it's unclear what these conditions will be." We'll have a few months to see what those conditions are.

Code Vein will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
