Majesco Pumps Out Bloodrayne 2

Majesco has shipped its action-horror sequel, BloodRayne 2, to retailers nationwide. The rollout will be celebrated with a BloodRayne 2/Headbangers Ball launch event at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on October 21.

Born from an unnatural union between a vampire and a human, BloodRayne is blessed with the powers of a vampire but cursed with the unquenchable thirst for blood and a weakness to sunlight. The new game 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.

Continuing the fast-paced acrobatic combat that hooked gamers in the first title, 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, it 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.

The popular game franchise is being adapted for the big screen with actress Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) in the title role. Directed by Uwe Boll (House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark) and produced by 1st Boll Kino Beteiligungs GmbH and Brightlight Pictures Inc., BloodRayne is now being filmed in Romania.

Developed by Terminal Reality, BloodRayne 2 is available for PlayStation 2 and Xbox for a suggested retail price of $49.99. More information about the game can be found online at www.bloodrayne2.com.
