Code Vein’s Hellfire Knight DLC arrives alongside new update
Code Vein’s first DLC, Hellfire Knight, is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, Bandai Namco has announced.
The DLC introduces a new side story for players to work their way through that ends with a boss fight against the titular Hellfire Knight. In addition to this new content, players can unlock a blood code, three weapons, and alternate costumes for their partners. Players can also venture back into the Depths to take on a new area called The Fiery Oblivion.
Joining the DLC is a new update that adds the option to teleport to mistles in the Depths and makes it so resting at a mistle revives bosses. Read the full patch notes below:
- It is possible to move to the mistles in the depths field with “Teleport” in the mistle menu.
- The reviving rule of the boss enemy in the depths field is changed.
- Rest at Mistle”, “Using an item to return to Mistle or Gift” can revive the boss enemy.
- During the multi-player mode, the time until the multi-player finishes immediately after defeating a boss is extended against some bosses in the normal fields and the boss in the depths field.
As previously announced, Bandai Namco plans to release three pieces of DLC for Code Vein. The second content release is due to arrive next month, with the third DLC following in March.
