Vampire games and the vampire genre as a whole has always had a place in many people’s hearts. The genre itself is pretty flexible, which is why there’s a variety of games available – from action-adventure games like Legend of Kain to RPG ones like Vampire: The Masquerade.
When people think of vampire video games, a lot of players usually think about Castlevania. However, there’s one other franchise that has been on the down-low for many years now, and that is BloodRayne.
The BloodRayne series is truly one of the classics, as you play as a female dhampir named Rayne who fights Nazis and gathers ancient artifacts. If you think about it, this game would probably be the love child of Indiana Jones and Lovecraft.
Now, it has been announced that the two original BloodRayne games are going to be released again, only this time with better graphics along with many new improvements for fans to enjoy.
Fans have already known for a while now that BloodRayne 1 and 2 will be releasing enhanced editions. The new announcement here is the fact that the titles now have a release date, and it’s just around the corner.
According to the two games’ respective Steam listings, both titles will be launched this coming November 20 on Steam and GOG. This time around, they will be titled BloodRayne: Terminal Cut & BloodRayne 2: Terminal Cut.
These two remastered games come with better, more improved graphics and cutscenes than their original counterparts. Developer Terminal Reality has ensured that these newly-enhanced versions will run swimmingly on Windows 10 and other modern computers, as it tries to revitalize a franchise that has been dormant for about 16 years already.
Despite that long amount of time, fans of BloodRayne seem to be ecstatic about this re-release. This just goes to show that the game’s community hasn’t forgotten about the series yet.
Even amidst countless vampire titles, BloodRayne has always had a few edges that made it stand out from the rest, one of which is the main character herself. Rayne is one extremely acrobatic character, and with her incredible blade work, she’s truly a considerable half-vampire to contend with.
In other news, those who love gore and messy combat scenes will surely enjoy these two games. Those who get eliminated by Rayne almost always have messy and bloody deaths, whether she drains them of their blood or by cutting them limb from limb until they bleed out.
Since the two titles will be getting enhanced editions, you can expect these bloody scenes to become more high-definition. That being said, it doesn’t seem like publisher Ziggurat will be releasing these upcoming remasters to consoles, unlike the initial games.
Those who have previously bought the original titles on Steam or GOG will be able to download the remastered versions for free once they’re released, so that’s definitely great news for the fans.
Hopefully, BloodRayne: Terminal Cut and BloodRayne 2: Terminal Cut will be able to quench the fans’ thirst for new BloodRayne content, at least until Terminal Reality releases more installments for the series – if that ever happens, that is.
