Publisher of retro-and-modern games, Ziggurat Interactive, announced a summer 2021 release for their remastered, high definition edition of BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites.
In development by WayForward, the game’s original creators, this updated version of the hit 2D hack ‘n’ slash platformer will feature all-new voice acting performed by the original BloodRayne cast — Laura Bailey (Rayne) and Troy Baker (Kagan).
“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.”
Released in 2011, the original BloodRayne Betrayal was met with passionate reviews for its gorgeous graphics and punishing difficulty. This iteration in the series changed things up by switching from a 3D format to a fast-paced, 2D side-scroller. As Rayne, players will battle through 15 levels as they wend their way through a hidden castle where a sinister gathering is taking place. It’s Rayne’s last job, will she “clean house” or find herself six feet under?
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.
With 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 and improved support for haptic features on modern console controllers.
Fresh Bites will also receive an exclusive physical edition release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch through Limited Run Games.
BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox, and Switch.
