Story intro

Code Vein is an action role-playing game set in an open world, post-apocalyptic dystopian environment and played from a third-person perspective. Its gameplay is inspired by the Dark Souls series of games, and the animation is inspired by God Eater 3, also published by Bandai Namco. Set in the near future, the world has fallen to a mysterious calamity known as the Great Collapse. In order to fight the monsters that began emerging around the world humanity created the Revenants: human corpses brought back to life by implanting a Biological Organ Regenerative (BOR) parasite within the heart, acting as vampiric fighters with unique abilities. Revenants can only die if their heart is destroyed, and require human blood as nourishment to keep themselves from entering a frenzy and mutating into the Lost - cannibalistic beings devoid of reason and control. Participating in an experiment to stabilize the Revenant population and prevent frenzy, a young girl named Cruz Silva volunteers to become the "Queen of the Revenants", though she later frenzies herself and creates a miasma that hastens a Revenants' bloodthirst. More Revenants are created to defeat the Queen in a mission dubbed Operation Queenslayer, led by Cruz's father Gregorio Silva. Though they succeeded in killing Cruz, the miasma remains, requiring Revenants to wear filtration masks to avoid turning Lost, and the Bloodsprings (plants that produce nourishing Blood Beads as an alternative to human blood) begin to dry up. The Player awakens in the ruins of a city known only as Vein sealed within a red ring of fog known as the Gaol of the Mists. Guided by a girl in white named Io to a Bloodspring plant, the Player learns that society is falling apart due to the scarcity of Blood Beads due to a levy and distribution system and the very few humans remaining in the city being protected by Silva's provisional government, established shortly after Operation Queenslayer, leading to Revenants to frenzy and become Lost. The Player and Io meet Louis Amamiya, who sees the Player successfully make contact with the vestige of a Lost without becoming frenzied, acquiring that Lost's memories and their Blood Code (a unique property to every Revenant that grants them their personal powers.) The Player also demonstrates the ability to clear away the miasma, allowing for safer travel throughout Vein and exploration of the Bloodsprings. Louis introduces the pair to his comrade Yakumo Shinonome as their group is seeking to remedy the Blood Bead scarcity. Louis tests the Player's blood, and reveals that they are a 'Void-type', as their Blood Code has been damaged in some manner, allowing them to use the Blood Code of whoever shares their blood with them. The group decides to hunt down dried up Bloodsprings and follow the flow of the veins connecting them all together in an attempt to find the source of the Blood Beads.
