Nordic Games has announced that Painkiller: Hell & Damnation will now be coming to consoles in April, rather than the previously announced January release date. The PC version of the game released in October 2012.

“We have been working around the clock to bring the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game in line with the quality and standard of the PC game,” said Nordic Games’ Production and Business Development Manager, Reinhard Pollice.

“There has been a slight delay so that the console communities can enjoy the fiendishly ghoulish experience that we know they want and deserve. In taking this additional time to add the final touches, we know that players will realise that the best things do come to those who wait!”

Featuring single-player and co-op modes, Painkiller: Hell & Damnation will be heading to consoles on April 5th, 2013 for £24.99. A Collector's Edition of the game will also be available for £34.99.

Dammit delayed... at least we are getting the CE now! That's a huge plus. April isn't too bad, unlike Serious Sam 3 which was a year after the PC release.

That video tells me hardly anything about the game. Is it an FPS? Driving? MMORPG with horse racing elements?

Painkiller was the game used for the "Million Dollar" 2005 CPL World Tour.

It was one of the main competitive PC shooter games for a short while. It basically took over for Q3 (and a few other games) as the main 1v1 game while Counterstrike 1.6 and CSS dominated the team based pro community.

Until CoD ruined competitive FPS gaming.

Great news! Loved playing the first pain killer on the pc. Such awesome guns they had on it.
I've heard the AI is meant to be real shit on this though, hope that's not the case.

You guys who have never played a PK game, you're going to love it.

The only things I dislike about HD is they didn't re-make ALL the levels and only kept about half of the original music.

That didn't need to happen, but it's a miracle it's happening on 360 at all!

Awww it is delayed quite lots of times between October 2012, January, March and now April 2013. It is like Inversion last year got repeat delayed itself until released in July last year. I not sure if this game would be great but I am expect it is turns out being good or medicore. Already preordered it and look forward for achievements for this game. I am so happy to see Painkiller returns and been await for long time since it is cancelled on original Xbox. :P

#15 aGREED with you my friend. CoD series alway ruins gaming life since CoD WaW released and MP is waste breath by corner, one shot and silly child noobs who want ruins in game of MP. Then bit later time after CoD WaW released "IT'S BECAME" almost every games of MP ruins lol

Here we will see Tomb Raider, MW 4, BF 4, Painkiller: H & D, Gears of War Judgement, Aliens: Colonial Marines and more this year games of MP will very exciting to bring more ruins of MPs. This is how gaming go on and on for MP. MP is just friends to play with and achievements this is all I care about MP is. :)

I love Painkkiller, but I've heard so much shit about the pc version.
A shame really as this could have gone a lot better, and by not including ALL the levels it just doesn't seem worth it.
