Last month Bandai Namco announced Code Vein, an action role-playing game about blood-drinking revenants at the end of the world. Now we have the first gameplay trailer, and aside from the dynamic transformations, it has a very Souls series vibe.

Coming to home consoles in 2018, the game sees players travelling the wasteland of post-apocalyptic Earth, battling horrific beasts as they search for an escape from their blood-slurping existence. Before venturing forth, they will be able to recruit various NPC characters to fight by their side.

I’m getting a lot of Dark Souls here, mixed with a touch of Nier, though that might just be because I want every game to be more like Nier. How about you folks?
