Painkiller Hell and Damnation 1

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation Recreates the Hardcore feel of the Original

Inspired by games such as Doom and Quake, Painkiller is a fast paced, hardcore FPS. The latest version of the game, Hell and Damnation, is now in closed beta.

Demonic powers are manifesting themselves as a myriad of dark creatures, fighting over the fates of imprisoned souls caught in Purgatory. Once again, it is up to Daniel Garner to fight his way past hordes of demons and fiends. Painkiller has a reputation for being a hardcore game that requires players to wade through tons of monsters in each level, using different weapons to take them out. The gameplay is fast-paced, and the boss fights requires tactical play to defeat them.

“We are very excited to open the Beta for selected users and are looking forward to the feedback sessions in our forum,” says Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development, Nordic Games. “The feedback from fans that played the original Painkiller is extremely important to us. It will give us a chance to interact with the community as well as offering them exclusivity of being the first to play the game.”
