Painkiller Hell & Damnation Not Rated for Germany

Nordic Games somewhat proudly announces that Painkiller Hell & Damnation will not receive an age-rating in Germany, meaning the shooter remake will not be allowed to be openly sold in that country. Here's word on these new screenshots and the ban:

The newest installment of the legendary “Painkiller” series, “Painkiller Hell & Damnation”, will not receive an age rating in Germany, as been confirmed by Nordic Game Inc.'s parent company, Nordic Games in Vienna, Austria. In an effort to remind everyone that it is, in fact, just a game and not a monster hell-bent on ruining the minds of the masses, Nordic Games and The Farm 51 have released brand new screenshots and cover art for both the Standard Edition and Collector’s Edition. You can download those here.

In “Painkiller Hell & Damnation”, use an array of righteous weaponry to blast the crap out of hordes of demons and other creatures who want nothing more than to send you straight to the grave – again. It’s a fast-paced, thrilling, modern remake of an all-action shooter Classic!

“Painkiller Hell & Damnation” is scheduled for release on Halloween (October 31) for $19.99 in the Standard Edition or $29.99 in a packed Collector's Edition. Head to http://painkillergame.com to find out more and to pre-order the game.

Necrovision wasn't bad and it was certainly better than the last sequel for Painkiller which pissed all over the IP.

Why are Germans so afraid of their inner Nazi?

That looks very dated. Look at the textures on the trees here.

I mean... come on.

No. "Farm 51" consists of people who were involved in the making of Painkiller itself.

I was highly skeptical, but I watched a video of the beta and it looked pretty awesome. I think the atmosphere was even better than in the original game... I don't think this one is made by the same guys who made the shitty expansions. I don't think I'll pay for the beta access, because why the hell would I want to play an unfinished version and spoil myself... Will wait for a review.

Not bad, though I still would have given a slight edge to this Painkiller:

I f$@^&ng LOVE painkiller, the sequels were rehashed and the engine and gameplay almost didn't change at all.

Not sure why this would need to be rated in any country. It's a PC-exclusive, therefore no ESRB rating is necessary. Most digital distribution services will sell unrated games.
