It has been a long time since the world got a new BloodRayne title. The core series has laid in dormancy since 2004 and the last actual title in the series was released in 2011. While we might have to wait a bit longer for Rayne to see a new adventure, that 2011 game will be getting a remastered version this summer courtesy of the talented people at WayForward. The remastered version will be called BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites.
This title was a spin-off of the original franchise, featuring a 2-D art style and a hack n slash combat system. This is in contrast to the roots of the franchise which saw 3-dimensional slashing. However, for long-time fans of the series, this was the first taste of the Bloodrayne series in 7 years up to that point.
According to a press release:
“It has been a phenomenal experience working with WayForward to revisit and revamp BloodRayne Betrayal for a new generation of Rayne fans,” said Michael Devine, SVP of Business Development. “We were very fortunate to work with Laura Bailey and Troy Baker to lend their voices to their iconic characters.”
The new features being added to the game were also included:
All-New Voice Acting: Originally released without any spoken dialog, the new BloodRayne Betrayal will feature AAA-quality voice acting by Laura Bailey and Troy Baker reprising their roles as Rayne and Kagan. Patrick Seitz and Todd Haberkorn are also featured as voice actors in the game, bringing more of its characters to life.
Enhanced Edition: Cleaned-up visuals, squashed bugs, and support for HD displays (up to 4K) are just a few new details added to the game that help Rayne strut her stuff on modern PCs and consoles
Advanced Controller Support: Improved support for haptic features on modern console controllers
Modern Console Release: Rayne returns to console including a first-ever release on Nintendo Switch
Physical Edition: Collectors rejoice! Fresh Bites will receive an exclusive physical edition release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch through Limited Run Games
Players can expect to sink their teeth into BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites sometime this Summer. It will release for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Switch.
