Code Vein Shift, Bandai Namco Studios Inc. / Bandai Namco Entertainment 2019

Release Date: Sep 26 A dark action-RPG from the Japanese studio Shift, known from the God Eater franchise. The story takes place in the near future, when vampires with supernatural powers live on the ruins of our civilization. In the face of certain death, we rise. In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to 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. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity. Wandering aimlessly in search of blood, the Lost will stop at nothing to satisfy their hunger. Team up and embark on a journey to the ends of hell to unlock your past and escape your living nightmare. The gameplay takes after the tradition of the Dark Souls series. Players traverse locations that aren’t clearly separated and fight challenging enemies, including powerful bosses. There is also the blood-sucking mechanic that plays a major part in the game, and is implemented by using Blood Veil, which also acts as an armor. If the player succeeds at getting blood, they can use their Gifts – special abilities with various effects, ranging from strengthening our character, through weakening enemies, up to direct attacks on them. Blood Veil appears in many shapes and forms, as do characters’ skills and weapons, letting us use various strategies. One of the important elements is a system that lets us play with an AI-controlled companion. We select the companion from non-playable heroes, who become more numerous as we progress through the game. This allows us to complete tasks that would be too much of a challenge for a single adventurer. However, our friend isn’t just there to help us in combat – he can act by himself and his actions might result in situations which will require player’s support.
