A post-apocalyptic vampire action RPG, Code Vein certainly has hype surrounding it. Fans will have to wait a bit longer to test put that hype to the test. Previously slated for September 28th, 2018: Code Vein is now set for a vague 2019. Gamers have high expectations for this title and, with that in mind, Bandai Namco wants to ensure that Code Vein lives up to those expectations. Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for Bandai Namco, explains further:
CODE VEIN has received an enormous amount of positive feedback from eager fans who have received hands-on time with in-development versions of the game over the past nine months. Armed with knowledge of how well the game has already been received, we made the decision to postpone the release of CODE VEIN to further refine its gameplay in an effort to exceed the expectations fans already have of the title. It was a difficult decision to make, but we feel it is the correct one.
What’s the old Miyamoto saying: “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.” If it’s good, in the end, players will remember the game for what it was not for its release timeline.
For those you who need a refresher, here’s a breakdown of what you can expect from Code Vein when it releases next year:
Venture into the post-apocalyptic land of CODE VEIN and uncover its secrets. Players will be able to craft their own unique character and customize their experience by equipping numerous weapons, items, skills, and gifts to accommodate their favorite fighting style or gain a competitive advantage against impossible odds. Various A.I. controlled partners will also be on-hand to explore the interconnected world with their own specialized attributes and personalities.
Remember that Code Vein will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
