Bloodrayne Terminal Cut Coming 20 November


She is back! Bloodrayne: Terminal cut will include updated versions of the first two Bloodrayne games.

Being developed by Terminal Reality and Published by Ziggurat Interactive Bloodrayne 1+2 are being updated as we speak.

The original game was released in 2002 and is set in 1933 and 1938, just before World War II. As an agent of the Brimstone Society, Half-Vampire Rayne is sent to a variety of locations (a small swamp town in Louisiana, a Nazi fortress in Argentina, and an ancient castle in Germany) to battle supernatural creatures as well as the Nazi army.

The sequel is more of a family affair, as she squares off against her father and half-siblings, who have formed the Cult of Kagan and seek to impose a new era of vampire supremacy around the world.

When the remasters were announced Ziggurat promised us a complete remaster, but the teaser trailer didn’t really show us too much of a difference from back then.

The list of improvements they have given us is quite impressive though and is as follows:

  • Support for higher display resolutions (up to 4K / 3840×2160)
  • Improved rendering with up to 4x anti-aliasing
  • Upscaled cinematic videos
  • Support for modern gamepads (XInput controller support)
  • Improvements to lighting at engine level, plus fully reprocessed lighting data
  • Engine improvements to support uncompressed original textures
  • Improvements to effects such as reflections, water, fog, and shadows
  • Bloodrayne: Fully voiced with localized interfaces in English, French, Italian, Spanish
  • Bloodrayne 2: Localized interface and subtitles for English, French, German, Italian, Spanish
  • Optimized for Windows 10 

in a press release Ziggurat, Interactive president Wade Rosen said “The response was tremendous when we announced that we had taken over stewardship of the Bloodrayne series Fans have been asking what’s next for the series, and now we’re excited to show off the great work that’s been done by Terminal Reality on the first two titles.”

Bloodrayne and Bloodrayne 2: Terminal cut will be available on Steam and GOG. The prices for these haven’t yet been divulged, but what we do know is that owners of the originals on either storefront will get the updated versions free.

If you get the urge to buy the originals then they are available for purchase for $10 each on Steam and GOG.

This game has always been a fan favourite and the new version will undoubtedly give fans something fun to look forward to in the next couple of weeks.
