It's been nearly 10 months since we've heard much about Bandai Namco's souls-like Code Vein. While we did get to go hands-on at E3 last year, it was soon after delayed from its original September release date. Since then, things have been pretty quiet. A month ahead of E3, the game has finally resurfaced, and it looks like players will get a chance to play it themselves pretty soon.
Today, Bandai Namco announced an upcoming Network Test for the title, coming later in May. The test will allow players to go through the opening section of the game, along with a co-op dungeon. While the game is now slated to release sometime in 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, the network test is only available for the console editions. Note that the sign up page mentions that space is limited, so it's likely that not everyone that registers will be able to participate.
We also got a small set of new screenshots for the game, showing off some battle and customization scenes. There are also some lengthy gameplay previews now available (Game Informer, Giant Bomb). We've got a lot of coverage from 2018's trailers and Japanese publications, which you can find over at its game page.
