It’s been years since we’ve heard from the BloodRayne series, with its red-haired heroine and violent war-time gameplay. It was a decent series that was somewhat forgotten about as years went on. That should change with the release of a downloadable title named BloodRayne: Betrayal. It’s set to for download on August 30 and 31 respectively, for both XBOX Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
Developed by WayForward, this outing is a re-imagined one, taking the form of a cel-shaded side-scrolling action game. From what we’ve gathered based on the screens, it’ll be a very visceral and gory affair, as our favourite redheaded vampire slices her way through perfect blonde haired Nazis with blue eyes – Hitler’s experimental results. Though it looks like they’re not alone. She’s been recruited to stop an evil vampire, which is a basic premise but all that is needed.
I enjoyed the first BloodRayne when I played it years ago. It wasn’t the most spectacular game on the planet, or the classiest, but it was a lot of fun and did its job. Though I never got around to playing the sequel, I’ll definitely check this one out as it looks like it has potential. You can certainly count on it being fun, over-the-top and a complete massacre.
