That’s right! Rayne, everyone’s favorite red headed Dahmpir, has returned with ‘BloodRayne: Betrayal’; a new blood gushing 2D side scroller, available for download this summer off the Playstation Network (Aug. 30th) and Xbox Live Arcade (Aug. 31). The look of the game reminds me of a cross between Epic Mickey and the classic Calstlevania games, but with a few truck loads full of blood thrown into the mix. Everyone loves cheesy blood effects right? Of course they do! I still chuckle when I think back to the time when the ketchup blood from the original Mortal Kombat stirred up such huge debate. Now days, I can perform practically any graphic or depraved act I can think of within my virtual wonderland without so much as an eyebrow being raised. Oh, sweet justice.
Aside from the blood, you can also expect to see a fair share of hack n’ slash action, platforming, and puzzles with BloodRayne: Betrayal. I will admit, it looks like a fun game, but how could it ever exceed a masterpiece like the BloodRayne movie? Good God, I hope you can tell when I am joking… Enjoy the screenshots and if you are interested in finding out more, hop on over to the official site for more details.
Release: August 30th (PSN) and 31st (XBLA)
