'BloodRayne 2' (PS2/Xbox/PC) Announced

by Rainier on Oct. 30, 2003 @ 10:02 a.m. PST

BloodRayne is a dhampir, born from the unnatural union of vampire and human. Blessed with the powers of a vampire but cursed with the unquenchable thirst for blood and a weakness to sunlight, Rayne is challenged with her most personal battle yet in BloodRayne 2.

Majesco encourages fans to register now at the official BloodRayne 2 web site for exclusive details on the forthcoming debut of the BloodRayne 2 game trailer. The newly launched site will be continually updated with additional game features, images, and movies, and allow fans to sign up for ongoing BloodRayne 2 newsletters.

"The tremendous success and popularity of BloodRayne has secured a film deal and helped establish BloodRayne herself as one of today's most thrilling new game personalities," said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing. "BloodRayne 2 improves upon the original game in all respects and will deliver a much bigger, more action-packed sequel that elevates the franchise to a whole new level."

Born from the unnatural union of vampire and human, BloodRayne is blessed with the powers of a vampire but cursed with the unquenchable thirst for blood and a weakness to sunlight. BloodRayne 2 challenges the supernatural anti-heroine with her most personal battle yet as she hunts down each of her wicked siblings who are carrying on the legacy of their dead father, Kagan. They have created "The Shroud," a mysterious substance which, when released, renders the sun's lethal rays harmless to vampires. Now only BloodRayne stands between an unsuspecting humanity and a horrifying vampire dawn.

Expanding upon the distinctive features that were the hallmark of its predecessor - fast-paced acrobatic combat and supernatural powers - BloodRayne 2 includes new in-game dynamics such as pole combat, rail sliding and advanced melee fighting with fatality moves. Built upon a modified version of the Infernal Engine, BloodRayne 2 introduces threatening new bosses, all new environments set within a huge modern day city, a range of new supernatural powers and new motion-captured movements complete with soft-body physics.

Majesco recently announced a deal with Vierte Boll Kino Beteiligungs-GmbH & Co. KG (Boll KG) to bring BloodRayne to the silver screen. The movie is scheduled to begin shooting next year.
