More information about the upcoming vampire action RPG Code Vein has come out, including info on “Blood Tears,” fruit that will allow players to keep their vampiric tendencies at bay in the game. In Code Vein, players will have lots of powers, but will need to constantly drink human blood in order to maintain their humanity. In the game, “Blood tears” will act as a way for players to quench their hunger without having to feed on humans.

The fruits grow on plants called Blood Tear Springs, according to Siliconera, and will sprout whenever a Revenant is on the brink of demise. According to the recently released information, since the plants are dying due to the miasma surrounding the world, players will have the ability to restore the Springs to life by dripping their own blood on them. The introduction of the plants and their fruits will bring a new for players to progress through the game without giving into any vampiric tendencies they might have.
