As a member of a black ops unit, your mission in Vampire Rain is to secretly eliminate a growing population of deadly vampires known as Nightwalkers. Vampire Rain: Altered Species features extra bonus levels, revamped animations, character interactions, and multiplayer.

"It is truly an honor to be working with AQ Interactive to bring Vampire Rain: Altered Species to both the North American and European markets," said Ajay Chadha, president of Ignition Entertainment. "With a laundry list of notable titles already under their belt and years of experience, we at Ignition Entertainment are very optimistic in regards to this new partnership."

Vampire Rain: Altered Species is an intense game of stealth, survival and all out skill that takes place during a cold, wet night in a suburban, west coast city in the US. For some time now, mankind has been battling the ferocious and terrifying Nightwalkers, a race of superhuman vampires who crave human blood. People have been disappearing at night; the lucky ones are found dead, but those less fortunate are reborn as Nightwalkers, and are bound by instinct to forcefully recruit unwitting victims into the Nightwalker army. Gamers take the role of John Lloyd, a member of a US special government unit created to defeat the Nightwalkers, and the only human to ever survive a physical encounter with them.

"We are very excited to be working with Ignition Entertainment to bring Vampire Rain: Altered Species to the PS3," said Artoon President Naoto Oshima. "With a diverse, cross-genre title like this, we feel that the processing power of the PS3 will help us deliver a streamlined and memorable experience."

Aside from featuring an engrossing, blood-chilling, story driven single player campaign, Vampire Rain: Altered Species will also feature a highly robust multiplayer mode.

Ignition Entertainment has teamed up with publisher-developer AQ Interactive (known for Blue Dragon, Yoshi's Island DS, Bullet Witch and Blinx: The Time Sweeper ) to bring Vampire Rain: Altered Species to North America and Europe.
