Bandai Namco today confirmed that Code Vein, the company's new unique hack-and-slash IP, will release in September.
Code Vein looks like a rather interesting game that melds J-RPG visuals with fast-paced dodge-and-slash action combat from a Dark Souls game. Internally described as a "dramatic dungeon-exploring action RPG," Code Vein features online co-op and will take players across a world riven with chaos and monstrosities. The combat itself will be blistering and fluid, and gamers will have a fair bit of exploration to tackle throughout their journeys.
Code Vein launches on September 28, 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
