Get in the Halloween Spirit With Code Vein’s Latest Update

Earlier this month, Bandai Namco said that a Halloween-themed update would launch for Code Vein. It seems the company delivered in spades. Code Vein’s Version 10 is now live across all platforms, bringing with it Halloween-specific content and other game-based updates. In addition to unlocking new face paints and color pallets, players also have a number of improvements to look forward to regarding exploration, character creation, and the battle system.

Code Vein launched late last month on the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One to generally positive reviews. Our review of the action-RPG awarded it an 8 out 10, notably praising its Blood Code system and character creator. However, some aspects, such as the online multiplayer component and Revenant memory sequences, held the experience back.
