Games

  • BloodRayne (2002) -- set in 1933 and 1938, just before World War II. As an agent of the Brimstone Society, Rayne is sent to a variety of locations (a small swamp town in Louisiana, a Nazi fortress in Argentina, and an ancient castle in Germany) to battle supernatural creatures as well as the Nazi army.
  • BloodRayne 2 (2004) -- The game's plot features Rayne confronting her father vampire, Kagan. Rayne's half-siblings have banded together to form a group called the Cult of Kagan, who have pledged to create a new era of vampire supremacy,.
  • BloodRayne: Betrayal (2011) -- a downloadable sidescrolling game, released on September 7, 2011 for Xbox Live and September 6, 2011 for the PlayStation Network.

A fourth game, titled BloodRayne: The Shroud, was in development for the Nintendo 3DS.[1] The game was put "on hold" due to Betrayal's low sales.[2]
