Today the developers at Ramjet Studios released a new video about their post-apocalyptic zombie survival game Vein. 

The biggest news is possibly that the developers have reached a deal with Microsoft for a release on Xbox. Vein will launch on Xbox Series X|S once it officially releases on Steam. 

The video also showcases a lot of interesting updates made to the game, albeit they have not been released to the public just yet. 

We get to see new occupations for players, musical instruments that can be used as weapon, new zombie models, changes made to vehicles and buildings, and much more.

You can watch it below. 

Vein, which has been defined by many as a hybrid between Project Zomboid and 7 Days to Die, is currently being provided as a free demo on Steam to anyone who wants to play while the game is being developed. It's definitely an interesting alternative to paid early access and has gained the game many fans.

If you're unfamiliar with the game, you can read a list of features below:

  • Dynamic Environment: As time passes and seasons change, the world of Vein does too. Persistent, long-scale random events affect gameplay.
  • Intelligent AI: AI can see, hear, feel, and smell you, and react intelligently to those senses. You're being watched. Terrifying zombie variants make survival that much more difficult.
  • Customizable Characters: From your hair to your body type to your stats, you can customize your character and make them truly unique among the survivors.
  • Usable Everything: You can interact with nearly everything you can see. Open mailboxes, adjust faucets, and knock on doors. Throw a can of beans at a zombie if you like.
  • Fortification: Build over the destroyed world and establish safehouses. Defend yourself from raiders and invasions. Maintain your base by yourself or with friends.
  • Long-Term Survivalism: Hunt, fish, and trap. Till land and grow your own food. Chop your own wood. Once canned goods run out, you're on your own.
  • Vehicles and Maintenance: Get around the world of Vein with cars and trucks. Refuel and maintain your vehicle. Upgrade parts to repair damage and improve performance.
