Painkiller: Hell & Damnation
Painkiller Remake Gets Release Date
Written By
View author's profile

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation has a release date. The ultra-violent shooter heads to consoles on October 31st.

A remake of People Can Fly’s 2004 hit Painkiller, Hell & Damnation was developed by The Farm 51 using Unreal Engine 3. The game is so bloody that it has already earned itself a ban in Germany. Expect plenty of claret.

Currently in closed beta the game will be made available in a limited Collector’s Edition. Pick one up and you’ll also get a multiplayer skin, a single-player power-up tarot card, an art book, a making of DVD, stickers, a poster and postcards.

There’s some screens below.

Incredible game. Unfortunately, it's not going to do well on Xbox because of all the mainstream shooters - despite it being considerably more fun.

Weird because not much info about this game and it is very rare so now banned in Germany. I hope it not banned or not release outside of Germany as I already preorder it in shopto.net. So I am sure Germany people would port it from amazon.co.uk, shopto.net or other UK/Europe order websites since it's PAL version so Germany people can easy port from other country that same PAL. :)

So I knew Germany people already knew they are relieved from port. :)

Hmm, this is the first time I'm hearing of this. Heard good things about it back in the day. Might give it a try.

It's not Banned in Germany. No Age Rating = No Official Release.. and that's it.

For an Official Release a Game has to be Rated by the USK , they can still try to Release a Censored Version tough.

The original was loads of fun (2004) - hopefully this lives up to it.

I played through Painkiller on PC twice back when it released. I remember the wooden stake gun being awesome pinning enemies to walls. I'm going to buy this regardless of price, but i'm kinda pulling for this to be a $40 title. It was great back then and i'm looking forward to the modernized restoration of it.

I remember this game being fairly popular on the PC about 10 years ago. If it's cheap like Crysis was, I'll give it a try.

On one hand I really liked the game when it came out for PC, but on the other hand I don't think I'd pay $40+ to play it again on 360 (assuming they are going to charge around what Doom 3 BFG will cost)...at least not without the expansion attached. Is this just the core Painkiller game or is the xpac included as well?

already pre-ordered on steam, can't afford to buy this just yet with al the other shooter goodness that is coming out, but it shall be mine in the future


not 100% sure how it will work though...painkiller was always about speed jumping on higher difficulties, and i don't think that will work on a pad

we'll see soon enough i guess

Will be a great game i'm sure, but I know for a fact there will be 'complete the game on hardcore difficulty'...like every other cookie cutter achievement list out there....therefore its no sale for me if it is...tired of those games now...I hope it proves me wrong, the original was a classic...would love to say the same about the remake!

@24 bringing up that you were thumbed down will only bring more of it. Its wise to just let it go.

I really like how some games are still made like this that take the Doom/Unreal aspect of killing for the sake of killing. Arcade FPS's is sadly a dying breed...

get used to it sanchezz, i personally don't downvote things, but i do try to piss everyone off here, mostly the "how much, rip off" crew who constantly moan about games on XBLA being over 800 MSP, even though it should've been full retail, but no publisher wants it because it doesn't say CoD / MoH.....


all little bitches that only whine about EA or prices of download titles, running out to buy the latest DLC for £10 a pop, for all of 5 maps....TBH, i grew sick of them, i used to think if you don't like something don't comment, now i go in their game threads to troll the shit outta them...it's more fun than most games these days, with everything being generic modern warfare tripe (the setting, not the game, well actually the game too)

still, i've never dropped below -5...still, theres time, until rich decides he's sick of me and bans me



sorry to hear about the retarded german government banning this fine game, a few games it made sense (well, no it didn't, but with the whole nazi issue, i'd let them off) but this game is just shooting demonic/posessed shit...i see nothing wrong with that...at least you guys can import it...though i wouldn't like to get caught doing so, angela would not be happy

i never have a point, and if i do, it is rarely valid, i'm just a moron who should have his internet browsers blocked for the sake of humanity, but nobody has been bothered to see to it yet

Is this actually coming out on the 31st for real? I see no mention of the game anywhere except here and on their site, no list of achievements, nothing. How are they doing the collector's edition also? Like really, Gamestop only lists it as a digital download... so I'm guessing we get this as an XBLA download but no CE?

Wouldn't mind some more deets. Something tells me that this date of the 31st is all kinds of wrong. We shall see, they have a month to get some info out.

I'm being optimistic though, I do hope we get it for 360 on the 31st.

we'll never know until the day, and knowing microsoft, the acievements won't be up until the day after at least - it's not a big game, and they don't care about it


as for digital delivery, it is possible, the pack sounded exactly like what you get in the digital deluxe version on steam - i've bought a few of them in the past, and you know, i've never even looked at (or for - as i have no idea where in steam that crap is stored) any of the extra stuff you get
