New impressively beautiful Code Vein screenshots released

Bandai Namco has released a new set of impressively beautiful screenshots for its upcoming action RPG, Code Vein. Code Vein is a third-person action RPG that finds players assuming the role of a Revenant in which players must use special attacks in order to survive.

Players in Code Vein will be able customise weapons, Blood Veil and a special blood type named Blood Code. Each Blood Code has a special skill depending on the owner. When players equip their character with the Blood Code feature, they will get the original owner’s special skill. For example, Ranger Blood Code will be useful in dungeons, Hunger Blood Code is for ranged battles and Berseker Blood Code is for short distance battles etc.

On the other hand, Blood Veils allow for powerful blood drain attacks that will make quick work of enemies and also regain Ichor, which is needed to perform additional skills. The new Ivy Blood Veil unleashes a swift attack, producing thorns that emerge from the ground, piercing enemies from afar. Other Blood Veils announced include Hounds, Ogre, and Stinger, each with their own attack power and range of use. Players can switch out Blood Veils for the appropriate circumstances.

Code Vein is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and is currently planned for a 2018 release.
