Players will be cast into a conflict between Heaven and Hell, ensuring once again we'll blast our way through demonic hordes with exotic weaponry, including the titular Painkiller of course, perhaps offering the opportunity to stick it to the good guys.
Painkiller: Resurrection brings a two-player cooperative campaign to the series, as well as multiplayer improvements and features aimed at the competitive gaming community.
Painkiller: Resurrection is developed not by series creators People Can Fly, nor Painkiller: Overdose developers Mindware Studios, but little-known Homegrown Studios, whose only release to date is Robert D. Anderson & The Legacy of Cthulhu.
Published by franchise owners JoWood Productions, Painkiller: Resurrection is due on PC later this year, with an Xbox 360 release being a possibility further down the line.
Sweet holy hell I hope this turns out as good as the original Painkiller. Didn't care much for Painkiller: Overdose and from what I've seen of Homegrown Studios debut game, it looks a slight bleak for the future. Still hoping the team to deliver though.
