Vampire Rain: Altered Species official site goes live

11:56 AM on 06.05.2008 // Colette Bennett

Following in the trend of highly interactive game sites, Ignition Entertainment launched the official site for Vampire Rain: Altered Species today, a game that places you in the role of an elite agent for the American Information Bureau out to kill seven Nightwalkers who have infiltrated the area. Completing this mission will open up a special section of the site, offering hints and tips about the game.

The site also features new trailers, which will give gamers a peek into what they will be getting into this August when the game comes out. The trailers will be released as a series, so keeping an eye on the site may reward you in the long run.

What do you think about the interactivity of websites for upcoming games? I know the only one I ever played with for a long time was for a Myst sequel many years ago. Of course, they are great time wasters, but do you actually enjoy them, or do you feel it's just a bunch of crap you have to navigate through to find out information that would be better be plainly stated?

Full press release after the jump. Bring your garlic.

 

IGNITION ENTERTAINMENT LAUNCHES OFFICIAL GAME SITE AND TRAILERS FOR VAMPIRE RAIN: ALTERED SPECIES
 
Your Mission Begins at AlteredSpecies.com
 
 
June 5, 2008 - Marina del Rey, CA - Ignition Entertainment, a UTV Enterprise and worldwide publisher and developer of videogames, announced today the launch of the official game site and first teaser trailer in a series of videos for the upcoming stealth-horror title Vampire Rain: Altered Species. The fully interactive website can be found by pointing your browser to www.alteredspecies.com.
 
Visitors to the site will assume the role of an elite operative of the American Information Bureau (AIB) whose duty it is to seek out and eliminate (with a single head shot) the 7 Nightwalkers that have infiltrated the site. By eradicating the Nightwalker infection from the site visitors will be granted access to a special, highly classified, "Hints n Tips" section of the site. In addition to unveiling the latest screenshots, media, character profiles and downloads, AlteredSpecies.com will also house the latest in a series of terrifying trailers from the talented and twisted minds of Red 40 Productions. This series of trailers will mesh gripping, live-action scenarios with pulse-pounding gameplay to paint a chaotic and blood-soaked image of the game.
 
The series of videos will follow the Nightwalker outbreak and the heroic attempts of the AIB whose sole mission is to eradicate the growing infestation of Nightwalkers by any means necessary. Along the way viewers will bear witness to the detrimental effects of the Nightwalker outbreak upon a society wrapped in confusion and fear.
 
"We are thrilled by the level of interactivity delivered by AlteredSpecies.com," said Ajay Chadha, President of Ignition Entertainment. "That, along with our engrossing series of trailers, shows only the beginning of our commitment to aggressively market Vampire Rain: Altered Species through out of the box thinking."
 
In addition to the trailers and short episodic videos, Ignition Entertainment will also release a developer interview with the videogame's creators.
 
The Vampire Rain: Altered Species video series is set to start releasing Wednesday, June 4, 2008 and can be viewed by visiting www.alteredspecies.com.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.

Guys, serious question... How can I make D-Horse to poop?

Goddammit @ FullmetalJ, you have poisoned my mind with...whatever the hell this is.[youtube]https://youtu.be/wv0iUKb80C8[/youtube] It's so, so catchy. Go suck a baguette. And thanks :3. Yes I have listened to all of it.

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?
Vuster avatarVuster
Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

So I can plug any headphones I want into my PS4 controller. If said headphones have a mic, will it work in chat?

Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

Just bought Fez for xbox 360. Playing it on my 58 inch plasma. What a beautiful game.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!
