Code Vein gets a release date and Collector's Edition


Both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions will release with standard and collector editions, while the PC version launching exclusively through Steam.

Code Vein launches in Japan on September 27th and one day later on September 28th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC for NA and European Union regions.

While not a bad thing inherently on its own at all, Code Vein could just not help being constantly compared to Souls games and had a more challenging time conveying its own strengths. Code Vein is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humans have resorted to consuming blood in order to gain power to defeat the monsters that inhabit the world. In addition to the figure, the collector's edition includes digital content like the game's soundtrack, a digital art book, as well as in-game cosmetic items to use for your characters.

Big weapons, big bosses - many correlations have been drawn between Code Vein and Dark Souls (and Bloodborne to a lesser extent).

Those who pre-order the game will get a PS4 menu theme with a Code Vein and God Eater illustration by Kurumi Kobayashi (seen below), and three weapons based on Bandai Namco Entertainment's God Eater game. Having said that the game will support online cooperative play, so you will be able to summon other players in the fights as well. The problem is there's only so much blood to go around, so Revenants have learned to harness fruits called blood beads instead.
