“When we launched the Terminal Cut editions of BloodRayne and BloodRayne 2 in 2020, a new generation of fans were awakened to Rayne’s malevolent and lusty adventures," said Michael Devine, SVP of Business Development. “We’ve continued to make improvements fans have been asking for, and we are excited to launch what we know are the best versions yet of the original games.”
The third-person horror action series BloodRayne introduced gamers to Rayne, a brutal half-vampire femme fatale traveling the world to foil Nazi plans, battle supernatural threats, and uncover more about her vampiric heritage. Featuring a unique protagonist, fast-action combat, vampiric powers, and a globe-spanning storyline, BloodRayne and BloodRayne 2 offer a dynamic and visceral gameplay experience. Beloved by fans and critics alike, BloodRayne became a true cross-media phenomenon, spanning games, comics, and films across the early 2000s.
BloodRayne: Terminal Cut and BloodRayne 2: Terminal Cut are available now on PC via Steam and GOG for 40% off. The Ultimate Update is available today for free to those who already own the games.
