In Code Vein, you play as a Revenant in a future world "full of vicious enemies and monstrous bosses." You can make use of Blood Veils, which extract the blood from enemies to boost the player's abilities.

"Players can change their form to increase their strength, weaken enemies, and utilize new weapon abilities with overpowered attacks," Bandai Namco said. "Utilizing the vast array of weaponry along with each character’s Gift, players can adapt and strategize to a variety of battle conditions that suit their play styles."

The game is being developed by Bandai Namco Studios, which also contributed to the God Eater series, and is scheduled to launch in 2018 for consoles.
