QUENCH YOUR THIRST WITH NEW FEATURES IN CODE VEIN!

p>30th November, 2017 – Richmond, LONDON: BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe today released new assets for its upcoming action-adventure title - CODE VEIN. The new assets highlight a new character Nicola, new features such as Ivy Blood Veil and Blood Code as well as a new location – the Ridge of Frozen Souls and on top of that, the opening animation made by Ufotable!

Mia’s little brother Nicola Karnstein is wandering in Vein land with his sister and they will protect each other in the different areas. The Ridge of Frozen Souls is a harrowing mountain pass that features limited visibility, narrow ledges, deep snow, and an ice-covered cave.  Players will also have to contend against a massive armored enemy deep within the Ridge of Frozen Souls. This huge imposing figure is surprisingly fast and will combine its speed with its heavy shield to rush down the player.

To survive in the Vein, special attacks will be necessary! Blood Veils allow for powerful blood drain attacks that will make quick work of enemies and also regain Ichor, which is needed to perform additional skills. The new Ivy Blood Veil unleashes a swift attack, producing thorns that emerge from the ground, piercing enemies from afar. Other Blood Veils announced include Hounds, Ogre, and Stinger, each with their own attack power and range of use. Players can switch out Blood Veils for the appropriate circumstances.

Players in CODE VEIN will be able customise weapons, Blood Veil and a special blood type named Blood Code. Each Blood Code has a special skill depending on the owner. When players equip their character with the Blood Code feature, they will get the original owner’s special skill. For example, Ranger Blood Code will be useful in dungeons, Hunger Blood Code is for ranged battles and Berseker Blood Code is for short distance battles etc.

Fans will be pleased to discover the first screenshots of the opening animation created by Ufotable, the Japanese studio who also worked on TV animation ‘GOD EATER’ and Tales of Zestiria the X’.

CODE VEIN will be available on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC Digital in 2018.
