Painkiller Hell & Damnation Free Multiplayer Weekend
- Updated: 1st Feb, 2013
Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is an interesting game – a throwback to days of FPS yore when battles were fast-paced, players carried a dozen weapons and monsters ran in straight lines, occasionally getting trapped in the environment. It’s silly, mindless fun in the campaign mode and the bosses are overwhelmingly impressive, even though battle tactics largely boil down to “Shoot all your bullets. Run away.”
I’ve been told that the multiplayer is where it really shines and this weekend, you’ll have the chance to see that for yourself, as the multiplayer component will be absolutely free for Steam users. If you like it, the game will be going at 66% off, at the wallet-saving price of £6.12.
The trial starts in just under 2 hours at 6pm GMT tonight and runs through to 9pm on Sunday.
Publisher Nordic Games are also offering some great prizes for the top three Painkiller players in the world when the free trial closes. The leaderboards will be reset tonight to make this as fair as possible.
First prize: The Alienware “Aurora” desktop
Second prize: An Alienware “M17x” laptop.
Third prize: A Nvidia 660 GTX TI graphics card.
Each of the prizes will also include a season pass for all the present and upcoming Painkiller Hell & Damnation DLC.
To participate, simply download the Painkiller H&D client from the Steam store and hop in. Good luck
