Code Vein is out this week, and it's the second Dark Souls-like game following Deck13's The Surge 2 out at this time. We've already discussed how there's no demo for The Surge 2, but is there a Code Vein PC demo for people to try?
There's a Code Vein trial version on both PS4 and Xbox One consoles, but is there one on Steam for PC owners to get their hands on the game before buying it? Let's have a look.
Is there a Code Vein PC demo or trial version on Steam?
Code Vein is a fun take on the Dark Souls-like action-RPG genre, which basically takes the Soulsborne formula and adds vampires, anime, and a few other neat quirks. But is it possible to try before you buy? You can if you have either a PS4 or Xbox One, as a special demo trial version of Code Vein is available to download on PSN or the Microsoft Store. But what about PC?
Sadly, we have to report that, as of right now at the game's release, there is no Code Vein PC demo and the trial version isn't available on PC - on any storefront. We even tried to download the Microsoft Store version to PC, but that didn't work either - and it's definitely not available on Steam.
If you want to try Code Vein but don't want to buy it, you'll have to play the trial version on consoles - or wait for the demo to hopefully appear on Steam. Otherwise, check out the various gameplay playthroughs on YouTube. We realize that won't help with optimisation, but if you want to get an idea of the gameplay - and you don't have a console - that's probably your best bet for now.
