Bandai Namco Entertainment has released a new trailer for their upcoming dark fantasy RPG, revealing details on the game’s combat mechanics.
The trailer, which started streaming July 2, shows the flow of combat with different weapons against some of the game’s enemies. The player character is also shown using a sword and a pole arm weapon, which have different speeds of attack and windows of vulnerability.
“Code Vein” currently has a 2018 release window and will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
After the trailer released during E3, this one definitely feels a bit lacking. Yes, it’s still gorgeous to look at, and sure, it captures the feel of Dark Souls and Bloodborne to a tee. That said, the combat seems a bit slow and plodding compared to what the E3 trailer made it seem like players would experience. The game still has a long way until release though, so hopefully it will hone the pacing of its gameplay in the coming months.
