Painkiller Hell & Damnation Announced

Nordic Games announces Painkiller Hell & Damnation, a new installment in the Painkiller series of first-person shooters in the works at Farm 51. Here are a couple of screenshots from the Unreal Engine 3 game, and here's word:

The legendary Painkiller series experiences its biggest leap ever with Nordic Games' upcoming installment: Painkiller Hell & Damnation.

Painkiller Hell & Damnation is under development by The Farm 51, an experienced Gliwice/Katowice (Poland)-based development studio.

Powered by Epic’s world-renowned and highly-respected Unreal Engine 3, Painkiller Hell & Damnation recreates the sensations and hardcore gameplay of the original Painkiller. Released in 2004, Painkiller won high praise and many accolades and fans for its fast and unique gameplay. Keeping true to the old-school FPS ideology, lightning-fast movement enables skillful players to get into the heart of the fast-paced gameplay, topped off with stunning enormo-boss fights requiring sneaky tactics.

“We're proud of the shiny new splendor of the game's graphics, but we're doubly proud we've made player skill the most important part of the game. In addition to the single player campaign, we're putting a tremendous emphasis on the game’s multiplayer component” said Reinhard Pollice, responsible for Business & Product Development at Nordic Games.

I know how some of you guys feel but this will not be like other games.

Painkiller: Resurrection
Painkiller: Redemption
Painkiller: Recurring Evil
Were made with a fan base hands and the key word here is Experiences.
This is like ID coming out and saying "we are making a true sequel to quake1'
Most of farm 51 are former people can fly employees

Those screenshots look kind of washed out and low-res for being U3...

Why do they keep making these games? I've heard such bad things about the last few Painkiller expansions, and yet somehow they keep finding an audience big enough to continue making them?

Just coasting on the name. They were really as bad as you heard, I'll wait for reviews after buying those.

The Farm 51 is made up of people that worked on the original Painkiller, so there's some hope. At least it's not another fan-made mod with the Painkiller name.

Necrovision wasn't too bad of a game. It had it's fair share of "Painkiller" moments.

These are the guys that made Necrovision. Not the best record but at least they didn't make those terrible Painkiller expansions.

Necrovision with more time and polish could have been great. Reason to be at least curious.

I hate to sound crass, but if it isn't by People Can Fly no one gives a damn.
The Painkiller franchise was burned and wasted with too many horrible, cheaply produced "addon" crap.
