Bandai Namco has revealed a new Code Vein update, which is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The version 1.10 update introduces Halloween-themed content, difficulty reduction options, various bug fixes, and more.
Just in time the spooky season, Code Vein will receive some additions to its character creator, including Halloween-themed color palettes and face paints, as well as new accessories and hair functionality. The update will also change exploration and battle systems, giving you the option to lock the direction of the mini-map and turn off damage screen effects when near death.
Code Vein’s version 1.10 update also allows you to reduce the difficulty of New Game Plus. Elsewhere, the update addresses various bug issues, such as application errors and enemy movement.
In our Code Vein review, we said, “Code Vein adopts the Souls-like formula in its structure, presenting a familiar cycle of progression and basic combat similarities, and there are some interesting ideas here, too, built around the use of various Blood Codes and their distinct Gifts. You can see the fragments of a fantastic game hidden within these systems and its meaty combat feedback, but the mundanity of its enemies and the effect they have on nullifying the combat’s enjoyment prevent Code Vein from ever realizing its potential.”
