How To Access DLC Items In Code Vein?

This guide will walk you through the process of getting your hands on the DLC items you are entitled to when you play Code Vein.

Code Vein has several editions of the game and these versions of the game come with unique and exclusive items that are not available in the standard edition of the game. From cosmetics and unique items to entire story expansions, there are plenty of things to keep you busy once you’ve beaten the game.

This guide’ll look at all the DLCs in Code Vein and how to access them. We’ll detail unique items exclusive to the game’s pre-ordered and deluxe editions and cover the DLC story expansions.

Code Vein Pre-Order DLC Items

If you pre-ordered the game, you are waiting to receive some gifts. Equipping the items is very easy; just follow the simple steps.

Go to the Home Base in the Ruined City Underground. You must interact with Louis and watch for the cutscene to end. Once done, talk to the merchants and they will show you your items.

  • GE Weapon Collaboration: Purchasable from Murasame under the Buy > Buy Weapons option. Includes Blanched Greatsword, Cerulean Spear, and Crimson Longsword.
  • Blood Veil Ogre: Venous Claw: The item is purchasable from Murasame under the Buy > Buy Blood Veil option. The Veil you are looking for is called Venous Claw.
  • Reserved Bloodkin Set: Grab this from the basement, it’s called the Harbinger and the Desperate Burst gift.

You will also find Bonus Cosmetic items and Communication stamps.

Deluxe Edition Items

The game’s Deluxe Edition has several benefits, including the season pass and the base game.

Once you finish the first area of the game, Ruined City Underground, you will be heading to your Home Base to collect the following items:

  • Mia Costume: You will get the Mia White Angel costume with the Deluxe pre-order.
  • Blood Codes: Again, you can get the Astrea blood code in the basement.
  • Gifts: The gifts include Torchbearer, Gift Extension, Lightning Spike, and Guardian Aid.
  • Additional DLC: Abyss of Ice, Abyss of Thunder, and Abyss of Fire.
  • Accessory Set – Insatiable Bloodthirst: These are cool accessories to customize your character with and can be used at the creation menu either during the start of the game or if you use the bathtub. The accessories particular to this set are in the Purifier Mask and Accessories tab. Stuff included are items for the Head, Jewelry, and Gloves. In particular, you can get the “demonic wings.”

Before attempting the DLC, ensure you’re at least level 180. You’ll have a much easier time if you attempt during your NG+ run.

How to Access all DLC Expansions in Code Vein?

The DLCs can be found in the upper level of Crypt Spire. This is also where you will fight two bosses. Go to the end, and you will see steps on your right side.

Get downstairs, and you will find a new door. If you have DLCs installed, you can open the door. Just open the door and move forward, and you will find all the DLCs in the room. These will be the Lord of Thunder, Frozen Empress, and Hellfire Knight.

Two will be on the right side, and the third will be on the left. Now, remember that these are like the depths map, and for access, you have to go back to the Home Base and Talk to Davis.

Now you can see all the maps with different colors, and you can access them as well.
