Bandai Namco have revealed a lot more information about their upcoming action game, Code Vein. This includes details about two new characters, Karen and Cruz Silva
Code Vein: A lot more story information has been revealed!
The information was revealed focused around “Queenslayer”, which you can read below.
“Operation Queenslayer” is the name of the battle to defeat the rampaging Q.U.E.E.N., where many Revenants participated as soldiers. The protagonist was one of those soldiers. After regenerating many times over, the protagonist partners with Jack, who highly values his fighting style.
Field Research Military Facility: The Outskirts
With Q.U.E.E.N.’s attack, all of the Revenants were defeated. Piercing white thorns were the remains of that attack. And the building’s function as a facility fell with Q.U.E.E.N.’s rampage. Flames and black smoke built up around the facility, and the fierce battle with the intermittent Lost continued on.
The facility and its surrounding area took a devastating blow from the “Thorns of Judgment” that led to the world’s collapse and Q.U.E.E.N.’s attack. Both inside and outside of the building, the Lost that serve Q.U.E.E.N. roam about.
They are also known as Q.U.E.E.N.’s vanguard. There are both one-handed sword-use types and halberd-use types. They are the strongest of the strong, and can also use Gifts.
There’s also the Queen’s Knight, who will be against you as a boss battle.
The Deathmatch Against Q.U.E.E.N
Jack and the main character confront Q.U.E.E.N., but face a hard fight against her mighty power. During that battle, Gregorio Silva comes running to help. He uses a Gift to put up a barrier that protects the two and defends against Q.U.E.E.N.’s attacks.
Jack and the protagonist are able to move on the offensive thanks to Silva’s support, but during that battle, the protagonist’s mask is removed and miasma enters his system.
Although they somehow succeed in defeating Q.U.E.E.N., the protagonist progresses towards becoming a Lost. At the hands of Jack, who determines that there is no means to save the protagonist from the transformation, the protagonist is dropped down to the bottom of a ravine…
She will be voiced by Yumi Hara. Karen is one of the researchers who worked on the Q.U.E.E.N. Project, and Louis’ older sister. She died during Q.U.E.E.N.’s rampage, but was immediately revived as a Revenant. She also participates in Operation Queenslayer, serves as a protective observeror of Revenants returning to death, and supports their fight.
Revenants, which are are immortal, died and regenerated many times over in the battle against Q.U.E.E.N. Karen’s role is the welcoming, care, and maintenance for the Revenants that are regenerated, as well as battle support.
The girl that became the test subject of the Q.U.E.E.N. Project. She was a schoolmate of Louis, and is Gregorio Silva’s daughter. She withstood painful experiments in hopes of saving mankind, but became a destruction incarnate under the pressure of an unsuccessful experiment.
Miasma and Mistletoes
Revenants who inhale the miasma that occurs around Q.U.E.E.N. are hit with a violent thirst for blood and are in danger of becoming Lost. For that reason, it is necessary for Revenants to always wear a miasma-purifying mask in battle.
Activated “Misletoes” purify the miasma around them, and have the ability to connect and regenerate the flesh of the Revenants that have vanished from this world. It can be called a lifeline for Revenants.
Tomorrow, I’ll post some more of the freshly released Code Vein information. Next time, it will focus on Character Partner Traits and co-op info.
