The launch trailer and opening cinematic for Painkiller Hell & Damnation is dark and pretty dramatic, but it’s set to to a strangely upbeat song, “Painkiller,” by Siri Svegler. This odd mix works well together. I’m sure I’ll be singing the song for the rest of the day.
The PC game is out now, on Halloween, which is perfect when you consider its setting and story. The Steam page for the game is currently showing that preorders are still open, with the unlock happening later today. It should be good to go by the time you read this.
If you’re going to go the console route for Painkiller Hell & Damnation, you’ll have to wait until January 22.
