BloodRayne rises from the grave with PC remasters this month

Posted on November 4, 2020

BloodRayne, the 2002 hack and slash vampire action-adventure series, will be released in a remastered collection for PC. Publisher Ziggurat Interactive announced that both the original and BloodRayne 2 will be packaged under the name BloodRayne Terminal Cut 1 and Terminal Cut 2. They will both be made available for free via GOG and Steam for those who own the original games. There has been no announcement yet as to how much the games will cost for those who do not already own them.

The original first instalment was released in 2002 and saw players playing as Agent Rayne, a half-vampire, half-human who works for a secret society that wants her help in ridding the world of the black magic that corrupts the world. BloodRayne 2, released in 2004, saw Agent Rayne seeking vengeance by killing off the entire family tree of the people who killed her own family.

The remasters will see both games optimised for newer hardware and will target up to 4K resolution. It will have improved rendering, upscaled cinematics, and other various improved effects. The BloodRayne IP was purchased from former owner Majesco by Ziggurat Interactive in mid-2020. Wade Rosen, Ziggurat’s president, said this purchase was an “opportunity to not only bring these games to a new audience but to expand their universes.”

BloodRayne: Terminal Cut and BloodRayne 2: Terminal Cut will be available on PC via Steam and GOG from the 20th of November 2020. Stay tuned to Checkpoint Gaming for more gaming news and updates!
