Updates include increased precision for Rayne’s movements, re-balanced puzzles and challenges, as well as additional checkpoints throughout.

The original video game femme fatale, Rayne, has returned to battle and feed in a brand new hack ‘n slash adventure developed by WayForward, the seasoned team behind some of gaming’s most critically acclaimed brand reinventions. BloodRayne: Betrayal delivers over-the-top stylish action with a healthy dose of bloodshed. You are Rayne, the sexy dhampir with superhuman strength, speed, and agility, recruited by the vampire hunting Brimstone Society for one last mission. The target is a lavish, yet sinister, ball in a secluded castle with plenty of dark surprises. With the help of a mysterious friend, and members of Brimstone, Rayne must infiltrate the manor, take out the fiendish horde, and stop an evil master plot once and for all.
It’s almost time for the release of BloodRayne: Betrayal – next Tuesday, September 6 for PSN (a PLAY title) and next Wednesday, September 7 for XBLA. This BloodRayne game is a 2D action platformer and looks pretty good and should be refreshing for the series.
