After what seemed like an eternity, Bandai Namco has finally revealed when Code Vein will be released: Sept. 28.
If you’ve been following Code Vein since it was unveiled last year, this moment has been a long time coming. With the promise of Dark Souls-inspired gameplay combined with God Eater-esque aesthetics, it instantly found itself on the watch list of players who had always wanted an “anime Dark Souls.”
To it’s credit, Bandai Namco always released constant updates about the upcoming ARPG, but the one bit of information that fans wanted — an actual release date — was never revealed. Things did seem to get better last month when an alleged leak claimed Code Vein was due to arrive in July, but it’s clear from this announcement that fans will actually have to wait two extra months for it to arrive.
Amusingly, this means that Code Vein will be yet another game to be released in September — a month that already has monsters like Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, Spider-Man and Shadow of the Tomb Raider already slated for release. Luckily, there aren’t many games that directly compete with it.
Regardless, we finally got our anticipated release date, so now all that’s left is to wait.
Code Vein is due out worldwide for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Sept. 28, and will arrive one day earlier in Japan.
