Update: Worthplaying had the chance to take a look on the early build of PK: Hell & Damnation. The game won’t be a complete remake fo the original Painkiller, as the developers wanted to put in some additional work, such as rebalancing the weapons and reinterpreting the boss encounters, also ther will be some new enemies. They mention the gameplay and the fast-paced action that we know from the old PK. The standard multiplayer modes will be available such as deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the flag, there will also be some others. Co-op could be included. Also PK:HD might come to consoles.

Original Article: We have waited so long for this. Now it’s here. A Painkiller with a new engine or more precisely the very well known Unreal Engine 3.
As announced by Nordic Games GmbH on the E3 Expo 2012 Painkiller Hell & Damnation is under development by The Farm 51.

There is not much known yet, but for sure there will be a single player campaign. Painkiller was a big succes not only on the SP Part, but also as a multiplayer game in the CPL World Tour and they will be putting a tremendous emphasis on the game’s multiplayer component” said Reinhard Pollice, responsible for Business & Product Development at Nordic Games.

A first build of Painkiller Hell & Damnation will be showcased to exclusive media partners at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles, California.

The first 3 Screenshots are released and are looking gorgeous.

Full Press Release:
The legendary Painkiller series experiences its biggest leap ever with Nordic Games’ upcoming installment: Painkiller Hell & Damnation.

Painkiller Hell & Damnation is under development by The Farm 51, an experienced Gliwice/Katowice (Poland)-based development studio.

Powered by Epic’s world-renowned and highly-respected Unreal Engine 3, Painkiller Hell & Damnation recreates the sensations and hardcore gameplay of the original Painkiller. Released in 2004, Painkiller won high praise and many accolades and fans for its fast and unique gameplay. Keeping true to the old-school FPS ideology, lightning-fast movement enables skillful players to get into the heart of the fast-paced gameplay, topped off with stunning enormo-boss fights requiring sneaky tactics.

“We’re proud of the shiny new splendor of the game’s graphics, but we’re doubly proud we’ve made player skill the most important part of the game. In addition to the single player campaign, we’re putting a tremendous emphasis on the game’s multiplayer component” said Reinhard Pollice, responsible for Business & Product Development at Nordic Games.

A first build of Painkiller Hell & Damnation will be showcased to exclusive media partners at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles, California.

  • Sevgilim01030

    This may lead to the basic game or the man neze to me, please tell 😀

  • How to enter thirdperson view.Is that thirdperson able just in this mod or in all painkiller parts ? 

    • Hellen

      To open third person view in Painkiller you must beat the game on Trauma difficulty without saving, loading or dying while being absolutely naked except for 3D glasses which you must be wearing the entire time. Good luck! 

      • Tibbse

        Is this thirdperson view is an “unlockable” thing, right? like when u finish the game finding all secrets u get free access/no gold required to using tarot cards, or like those 2 secret multiplayer models (Daniel & HellKing)

        If its an unlockable what about the checkpoint saves? I must skip them aswell? and am I able to use the tarot cards?

        • Phantom

          You do realize that it’s technically impossible not to save on trauma since some of the checkpoints CAN’T be skipped! And you have no other way of saving other than..checkpoints of course!
          So..I suggest you stop being so gullible and think again. 🙂

          I’m really excited about the game. I hope it’s gonna be great.
