Ziggurat Interactive, a relatively new publisher, has purchased the rights to multiple game licenses previously owned by Majesco Entertainment. Those include the good-old, blood dripping BloodRayne franchise.
The publisher is developing plans to expand the BloodRayne universe, but also announced that updated PC versions of the existing BloodRayne games are in the works by the original developer, Terminal Reality. These versions will include improved compatibility and assorted enhancements.
“BloodRayne is a beloved franchise with a huge fan base and we’re extremely appreciative of the opportunity to be stewards for this fantastic series,” said Ziggurat Interactive’s President, Wade Rosen. “Players the world over fondly remember titles like BloodRayne and Advent Rising and having the opportunity to not only bring these games to a new audience but to expand their universes is something we take seriously.”
“We are really excited to have this opportunity to revisit one of our favorite game series and make it available to a new audience,” said Mark Randel, President of Terminal Reality.
BloodRayne is a third-person horror action game series, with fast-action and violent combat. We take control of Rayne, a brutal half-vampire, half-naked beauty, with powerful vampiric powers. She’s on a quest to kill Nazis, battle supernatural threats, and, along the way, uncover more about her own complicated past. The last title in the franchise, BloodRayne: Betrayal, was a sidescroller action game released in 2014.
BloodRayne’s world expended out of video games into comics and even into cinema, with three very crappy films by none other than Uwe Boll (seriously, don’t try and watch them), making it a true cross-media phenomenon.
Aside from BloodRayne, Ziggurat Interactive also acquired the licenses for Advent Rising, Raze’s Hell, and Flip’s Twisted World. These will join Ziggurat’s catalog of more than 200 IPs and fans can only hope for them to show up on different platforms sometimes in the future.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores.
