Ziggurat Interactive announced BloodRayne: ReVamped and BloodRayne 2: ReVamped, enhanced versions of BloodRayne 1 & 2, are beginning on consoles.
Rayne is slashing her way back to consoles, as upgraded versions of BloodRayne’s main two installments are officially coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this fall. Publisher Ziggurat Interactive has announced that the set will be arriving as BloodRayne: ReVamped and BloodRayne 2: ReVamped and can be available digitally, alongside a limited-time physical release via Limited Run Games on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The BloodRayne franchise recently experienced somewhat of a revival after being announced that a remaster of 2011’s BloodRayne: Betrayal would arrive this coming September.
Last year, it had been unveiled that publisher Ziggurat Interactive had acquired the rights to Majesco Entertainment’s 2000s vampire action-adventure series, BloodRayne. Having plans to try quite to stick its name on the franchise, the publisher worked with its original developers to release enhanced versions of the primary two installments of the series on PC. Titled BloodRayne: Terminal Cut (and BloodRayne 2: Terminal Cut), these new versions were updates for modern PC systems, bringing new features and enhancements like 4K resolution and full controller support to the ported titles. Now, it appears console users can soon experience the series remasters.
In a recent tweet, Ziggurat Interactive announced BloodRayne: ReVamped and BloodRayne 2: ReVamped are going to be ported to multiple consoles. These enhanced editions of the first games are going to be digitally available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year. If these ReVamped editions of the primary two BloodRayne installments are almost like BloodRayne: Terminal Cut, they’ll support up to 4K resolution with reprocessed lighting, improved effects, upscaled cutscenes – and have several audio and text localization options. Additionally, Ziggurat added that physical Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch editions also will be available within the future, as a limited-time release by Limited Run Games.

Originally released in 2002, BloodRayne may be a hack and slash action-adventure that follows half-vampire Rayne as she tried to guard humanity against supernatural creatures and, therefore, the Nazis within the 1930s. The sport was given a positive reception by critics and fans alike for its expanded gore features and mild themes, later receiving a sequel and a BloodRayne movie adaptation within the mid-2000s.
With the improved versions seeing a PC port and this year’s upcoming ReVamped console editions, maybe Rayne will receive a sequel and third installment within the main BloodRayne series. Ziggurat seems committed to bring the series newfound attention. Until then, however, players can experience the events and gameplay that helped BloodRayne’s heroine enter the gaming world to start with.
