Taking the 2011 classic and adding in enhanced visuals, features and all-new voice acting, before throwing it out on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC, there can surely be no better way for the Ziggurat and WayForward teams to celebrate a decade of BloodRayne’s finest. But that’s exactly what they are doing with the release of Fresh Bites.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S (fully optimised no less!), PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC, BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites sees the original video game femme fatale kick back into action as players are left to run, jump, cut and feed their way through proceedings.
Priced at £16.74 from the Xbox Store (other store prices may vary), BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites tasks you with working through an huge underground castle in order to confront the titular Rayne’s father, summoned forth by the Brimstone Society. The question is, will you be able to help Rayne succeed in her quest, or will her dad’s supernatural forces get the better of you?
BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites takes the very finest moments of the BloodRayne series and brings it fully up-to-date for the modern audience. That means the visuals are more intense, a new 120 FPS mode is present on Xbox Series X, there is the opportunity to dial things in via new difficulty settings, and some of the leading voice talent from the scene are on board to ensure things come alive. And yep, that sees Laura Bailey and Troy Baker starring as Rayne and Kagan (her father), along with Todd Haberkorn and Patrick Seitz for good measure.
Those features in summary include:
- • All-new A-List voice acting: Original BloodRayne cast members Laura Bailey and Troy Baker reprise their roles as Rayne and Kagan – alongside talented voice actors Todd Haberkorn and Patrick Seitz – to bring new life to the original written dialog.
- • Sharpened visuals, squashed bugs, and support for higher display resolutions (up to 4K) help make Fresh Bites the definitive Bloodrayne Betrayal experience.
- • New difficulty options: Play with a newly rebalanced difficulty tuned for a fun and engaging experience, or sink your teeth into the punishing original difficulty mode if you’re looking for a tough-as-nails challenge.
- • 120 FPS mode available on Xbox Series X|S.
Whether you are a fan of BloodRayne Betrayal from back in the day, or are just looking for something new and exciting to play on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch or PC today, we’re pretty sure that BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites will see you right.

The Brimstone Society has summoned Rayne for one last mission to lead a group of soldiers into a giant underground castle to do battle against none other than her own father, Kagan. When her escort proves ineffective against Kagan’s supernatural forces, it’s up to Rayne to run, jump, cut, and feed her way through gruesome foes, deadly traps, tricky platforming sections, and horrifying bosses. It’s Rayne’s last job — will she “clean house” or find herself six feet under? Original developer WayForward has upgraded its 2011 classic 2D hack ‘n slash platformer with high resolution visuals, modern features, and all-new voice acting performed by original BloodRayne cast members Laura Bailey (Rayne) and Troy Baker (Kagan). Bloodrayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites distills the best parts of the BloodRayne series into a bloody, twitchy, action-packed 2D hack ‘n slash adventure through fifteen challenging stages.
