Action RPG Code Vein Will Have Dark Souls-Like Co-op On PS4, Xbox One, And PC

You can signal to other players to help out.


Bandai Namco's upcoming action-RPG Code Vein promises a distinct style, a dense world, and difficult combat--and , the publisher revealed that it'll also feature cooperative multiplayer. On Twitter, the company announced that you'll be able to explore the vampire-themed world and tackle its difficult enemies with friends. From the description, it sounds like it'll operate similarly to Dark Souls' co-op functionality.

As you explore and attempt to complete dungeons alongside an NPC companion, you can send out a distress signal to summon a different player. As Gematsu reported, this player will have to fulfill "certain conditions," although it's unclear what these conditions will be.

This player will appear alone and can help you clear a dungeon, and then they can stay with you as a party member. They'll also be affected by your NPC's special perks, called Gifts. Bandai Namco also released a few new screenshots for the game, which you can see above.

Code Vein is scheduled to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2018. It's in development with the team that made the God Eater series, and it won't have an easier difficulty setting; instead, you can change your stats freely throughout the game.
