Bandai Namco showed off several new areas and features of Code Vein at the Taipei Game Show today, including a base that acts as a place to talk to other support characters and upgrade weapons, as well as footage of a new area named ‘The City That Rains Fire’. [Thanks, Bahamut]
The City That Rains Fire:
Producer Keita Iizuka and Director Yuzuke Tomizawa went on stage to show off The Ridge of Frozen Souls, and a new field, The City That Rains Fire. In The City That Rains Fire are fire hazards and magma zones that can sap away players’ health quickly with improper positioning.
In the first half of the video, the protagonist is equipped with a two-handed sword and the “Hounds” Blood Veil. The protagonist uses the Halberd and the Stinger Blood Veil in The City That Rains Fire, with Rui as a companion. The developers recommend this combination thats to the longer range. At the end, a mid-boss is shown off.
Bandai Namco also released some footage on Twitter, without audience noise in the background:
