Code Vein PS4 Demo
The Code Vein PS4 demo will be available on September 3 for PS4. It will allow players to create their characters, experience the start of the game, and dive into the first part of “The Depths” area, which is a challenging, high-level area accessible after the intro of the game.
You can watch that trailer below for the Code Vein PS4 demo:
Code Vein has been a long-in-development title. Originally announced in 2017, the game was scheduled to release in 2018, but was delayed into this year. We then had a ninth month stint of hearing nothing about the game, which prompted me to take a look at where the game was in development.
Then, in April, I managed to get my hands on the game at a preview event and came away with a mixed opinion. I found the characters to be entertaining and the world interesting to explore; however, the combat felt like a hollow emulation of Dark Souls, without the finesse or polish that those games had. You can read my full impressions of the game here.
This news came during Gamescom 2019. The Gamescom convention hosts almost every major publisher in the industry, including Sony Interactive Entertainment. The convention kicked off with Gamescom Opening Night Live a reveal show hosted by Geoff Keighley, the Creator of The Game Awards. You can rewatch the livestream here.
