Code Vein takes place within a post-apocalyptic world. Amidst the worldwide destruction, a secret society known as “Vein” has risen from the ashes. This organization is mainly run by “Revenants,” immortal creatures who were once human that take on the properties of vampires. Since coming back from the brink of death, Revenants vie for survival by acquiring various “Gifts” of power. But in the process, their memories are wiped clean. Should any Revenant give in to their vampiric desires, he/she will transform into a mindless ghoul known as the “Lost.” As the main protagonist of the story, you set out with a number of allies as you try to recover your lost memories and discover the source of the world’s damaged state.
Praise The Spa:
Code Vein allows its characters to relax in the bathing waters at the spa in their base. By relaxing at the spa, players will recover half of the Haze that was dropped on their previous defeat,
letting them at least recover some if they deem it too risky to return to the place where it was dropped. Players can also use the spa to revisit past events and look up in-game terminology.
The Best Anime Creator:
Code Vein offers a very vast and pretty indepth chracter creation, can even do things like completey different looking eyes etc. theres a huge range of different things to choose from with people already creating 2b and skeletor for instance.
Give Me All Your Code's And Gifts:
Blood Codes and Gifts are going to form the backbone of your experience. The Gifts are all tied to your character’s Blood Code, which, in turn, is basically your character class. Mastering the Gifts associated with any Blood Codes allows you to change the latter, which means that Code Vein will allow you to change classes and the abilities associated with them on the fly. In theory, this should allow for deeper progression and more build diversity.
Blood Veils are your armour in Code Vein, but in an interesting twist, they also function as important weapons, in that they’re also linked to draining enemies and collecting blood. These moves also increase Ichor, which is needed to perform other techniques There are currently four different Blood Veils in the game
Stinger is rather self-explanatory, and it’s basically a sting built on an extensible tail that can impale enemies and sap their blood in order to empower our character. Incidentally, it’s also the Blood Veil used by companion character Mia Karnstein.
Ogre is a Blood Veil that slashes at enemies with powerful claws, (which has a quick charge time and can hit multiple enemies with a forward dash),
which are multiple hitting Blood Veils (might hit the target multiple times or targets other enemies nearby). They morph from Revenant's scarf.
Hounds is pretty self-explanatory, as it literally sends wolf heads to rip the enemies apart
Stay On Target:
The Focus mechanic (or stay on target) is an interesting risk-reward system that will come in particularly handy during combat, especially when you’re taking a beating. Finesse actions (such as dodging incoming attacks at the last moments) fill up your Focus Gauge, while Focus attacks themselves have increased attack power, and can even leave your enemies open to deadly Blood Veil attack. Do be careful though- your enemies also have Focus gauges of their own, so they won’t always behave in the most predictable ways.
This Is My Pole:
Code Vein will have five different weapon types for you to try out during combat. There’s one-handed swords, which have short range but fast attacks; two-handed swords, which have a longer reach and deal powerful attacks, but are a little slower; two-handed hammers, which are blunt weapons with decent range but slow attacks; spears, halberds, and polearms, which have log reach and can do AoE attacks; and bayonet rifles, which can do both melee and long-range attacks.
Anyone For A Threesome:
you’ll always be accompanied by an AI-controlled NPC. From giving you buffs to dealing damage to enemies to drawing aggro to even sharing HP, they’ll always be involved in combat and aid you in various ways. It remains to be seen how this will shift the balance of the game’s difficulty, but managing a secondary character in addition to your own should certainly add another layer of strategy.
you will also be able to call on the aid of another human player. By sending out a rescue signal, the game matches you with another player and summons them to your current location. Summoned players can only be called upon when exploring areas you haven’t already completed. In a very cool move, you’ll be able to fight alongside another human player and still have the power to utilize your AI-companion character. Teaming up with other players awards you with an item called a “Mark of Respect.” This unique currency type can then be used to purchase different character icons, titles, and more.
