Bandai Namco Reveals Vampire RPG Code Vein

Last week, Bandai Namco teased a new RPG project, and today the company has revealed it's a console title named Code Vein.

The game takes place in the future where vampires called revenants balance their formidable abilities with the danger of becoming one of The Lost – ghouls drained of their humanity. 

Code Vein is a "story-driven connected dungeon experience," where you choose a partner that complements your combat style. Weapons (such as bayonets, axes, and spears) have their own abilities, and these combine with Blood Veil attacks, which are fueled by the blood of your enemies.

Taking A Tour Of The Talos I Space Station

Taking A Tour Of The Talos I Space Station

Previous trailers of Prey have answered the who, what, and how of the game: who is Morgan Yu, what are some of the aliens will players face, and how can weapons and powers be used to destroy them? The latest trailer for the sci-fi shooter focuses on the "where" as Arkane Studios takes players on a guided tour of the Talos I space station.

Featuring commentary from key figures behind the game's development, the trailer below shows off the diverse environments housed within Talos I and how they relate to gameplay. Some areas are full of luxurious red carpets with plenty of classy furniture for Mimics to copy, while others have no oxygen and allow Morgan to maneuver in zero gravity. Players can even leave the station and explore the space outside, which the developers say can eventually be used to quickly navigate between different areas of the station.

First Details For The Campaign And Multiplayer

Star Wars: Battlefront II is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17. A small taste of what this sequel has to offer leaked in a teaser trailer last week, but the extent of just how big the game is was revealed today at this year's Star Wars Celebration. Electronic Arts has heard the demands of fans and is turning Battlefront II into a robust experience that spans both single and multiplayer.
Star Wars is at its best when it focuses on a group of unlikely heroes coming together to save the day. Luke meeting Leia, Rey finding Finn – their stories intertwine and become one, like the Force. Electronic Arts knows the heart of Star Wars is an ensemble story, but has no intention of shining the spotlight on the heroes of the Rebellion again. Star Wars Battlefront II features a single-player campaign that is told from the perspective of the Empire.
