Many of those who played video games in the early 2000s probably remember BloodRayne. The vampiress known as Rayne was seemingly everywhere when it came to advertising BloodRayne and BloodRayne 2 in the pages of your favorite gaming mag. The logo alone can easily knock the dust off the old brain for a small dose of nostalgia. In the modern age, Ziggurat Interactive has pumped air into Rayne’s bloodthirsty lungs with the release of BloodRayne: Terminal Cut and BloodRayne 2: Terminal Cut, with both launched back in November 2020. However, Ziggurat revealed one last “Ultimate Update” will come to both the bloody titles.
As mentioned, both the BloodRayne: Terminal Cut and BloodRayne 2: Terminal Cut will see a free Ultimate Update. Each title received various enhancements prior to relaunching. However, Ziggurat Interactive still has a few plans for Steam and GOG players. GOG platform users will see an HD resolution wallpaper pack while Steam players can reap a few more benefits. They will instead get newly added digital trading cards, badges, and emoticon support.
