New details give a sense of the game’s in-depth combat system .
Code Vein is Bandai Namco’s new project that is being touted to be a souls-like game although it features an anime aesthetic and deals with the world of vampires. It is the in-depth combat system then that has drawn comparisons to the Dark Souls games.
Bandai Namco has now given out new details regarding the game’s combat system and how the different weapons in the game work.
First, we get details about Jack Rutherford who will be voiced by Junichi Suwabe, and Eva Roux who will be voiced by Saori Hayami. They are both revenants and while they may be in conflict with the protagonist, certain instances may see them working together with the players.
The different weapons introduced include:
Each of the weapons usually have three kinds of attacks, typically consisting of a weak attack, strong attack and a special attack.
Furthermore, we get more information about the Queen’s Knight who wields a giant sword and shield. The Queen’s Knight will keep up a fast-paced attack strategy that will prevent the player from resorting to using a counter-attack. The Queen’s Knight will also have multiple phases/modes of attacks that will activate once it loses a certain amount of health.
Code Vein is out for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide in early 2018.
