Enhanced remasters of the 2000s action games BloodRayne 1 and 2 were released on PC by Ziggurat Interactive in November. After a year, those ports are finally being released on consoles.
BloodRayne: ReVamped and BloodRayne 2: ReVamped aren’t complete remakes of the original games. Rather, they’re polished-up remakes of cult classics optimised for modern hardware. While the visuals remain the same, each title now supports 4K resolution (up to 3840×2160), as well as upscaled cinematics, improved lighting, and effects like reflections and fog. While the gameplay remains unchanged, ReVamped is aimed at fans who want to play their favourite games the way they remember them without having to use an old console.
The ReVamped games will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on November 18th. Although it’s a digital release, Limited Run Games will release physical editions of the PS4 and Switch versions in limited quantities. There’s no word on a price, but the PC versions, dubbed the Terminal Cuts, are $14.99 each, so I’m guessing ReVamped will be the same.
The entire series will soon be available on modern platforms, thanks to this year’s remaster of 2011’s BloodRayne: Betrayal. We can only hope that this strategy indicates that Ziggurat Interactive, which purchased the BloodRayne IP in 2020, is planning a new entry in the long-dead franchise. Or perhaps we’ll just get another Uwe Boll film. Please accept our apologies for bringing that evil upon us.
