From the press release:

    It’s about time you treat yourself this holiday season to one of the greatest 2D arcade hack ‘n’ slash experiences of all time! The critically-acclaimed BloodRayne: Betrayal is receiving a massive temporary price cut starting today, December 20th, and going through January 2nd in Xbox LIVE’s Countdown to 2012 promotion. Now, the blood-sucking, vampire-decapitating 2D action will be available for 50% off! There is no better opportunity to take on the role as the deadly half vampire, Rayne.

    BloodRayne: Betrayal follows Rayne, the original video game femme fatale as she sets on her quest for bitter vengeance. The talented team at WayForward has a stellar track record, rejuvenating some of the greatest series in gaming, and BloodRayne: Betrayal is one of their best.

    BloodRayne: Betrayal delivers over-the-top stylish action with a healthy dose of bloodshed. You are Rayne, the sexy dhampir with superhuman strength, speed, and agility, recruited by the vampire hunting Brimstone Society for one last mission. The target is a lavish, yet sinister ball in a secluded castle with plenty of dark surprises. With the help of a mysterious friend, and members of Brimstone, Rayne must infiltrate the manor, take out the fiendish horde, and stop an evil master plot once and for all.
