Code Vein comes out this September

About bloody time.

Code Vein comes out 28th September 2018, Bandai Namco has announced.

That's for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Code Vein is a new anime-style post-apocalyptic action RPG from the team behind God Eater. The main character is a vampiric Revenant who's able to access supernatural powers after a drink of blood.

Gameplay sees you exploring connected areas of a large world, armed with Gifts obtained via drinking blood to change their form, and a set of trusty weapons.

You also get to bring along an in-game buddy to help you uncover the mysteries of the world - a citizen of the "Vein". This is the hidden society of Revenants of which you're a part.

Here's how it looks:
