Bandai Namco Ent.'s PS4, Xbox One, PC game slated for 2018
The official Japanese PlayStation blog revealed on Thursday that anime studio ufotable will work on the opening cinematic for Bandai Namco Entertainment's Code Vein post-apocalyptic role-playing game. The post showed 10 screenshots from the animated opening.
Bandai Namco Entertainment describes the game:
In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world as we know it. Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity's past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. This final stronghold is where the remaining few fight to survive, blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity.
The company plans to release the game in 2018 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
