Witness a Bloodbath With the Latest Code Vein Screenshots

Bandai Namco has released a couple dozen new screenshots for the upcoming Code Vein. These screenshots show off a lot of the flashiness of battle, so you can time your time admiring attack effects and character designs. Code Vein is set to release next year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Here are the screenshots:

When you’re done looking at the eye candy, read up on Code Vein’s abilities and more:

  • The Gift system allows usage of up to 8 gifts during battle to temporarily increase attack or defence actions. Gifts can also be passive and gained with specific items or equipment.
  • The Stamina Gauge will have players manage all their actions (including attacks, evading, dashing and drain). Controlling actions and being attentive to the stamina gauge is key to survive in Code Vein. With a successful Drain action, the number of Ichor points will be increased as well as the maximum number of Ichor stock. A Special Drain can be performed under certain conditions. Not only will it increase the number of Ichor and Ichor stock, it will cause massive damage to enemies. The Special Drain action can be performed after a successful parry of an enemy’s attack, a successful attack from the back or a combo attack.
  • The Focus System can temporarily increase characters abilities during battle. This is best used when receiving and dodging attacks or surrounded by multiple enemies. The Focus System allows players to fight back in extreme situations, acquiring a power boost when intentionally placing themselves in danger. They can negate an attack, increase their own attack and throw enemies in the air!The Partner Action will help players during fights. Companions will support players by attacking during battles, enhancing the skills and sharing Health Points when needed.

Code Vein will release in 2018 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
