A third single player demo of the creepy and controversial first person shooter/adventure, Painkiller has just been released. This demo features the Military Base level along with all the enhancements from the current version 1.35/1.4 codebase that will also be included in the upcoming Battle out of Hell expansion.
Players take on the role of Painkiller, an unusual mercenary who makes a living by exorcising vampires and other dreadful beasts from their lairs- abandoned prisons, private castles, deep caves in the mountains, extravagant haciendas hidden in the jungle. “Cleaning” those places is excellent money and helps our hero living a decadent lifestyle, until the day he is tricked into a war between two competing clans of the undead. An assignment to retrieve a religious artifact from one of the nests provokes a furious battle and he realizes he might have to play his own cards. Meanwhile, a young female journalist runs her own investigation and tries to uncover the mystery behind the witty,
captivating Latino who is the legendary Painkiller.
Sounds pretty corny i know, but i played it a little and it’s actually quite a bit of fun. Nothing in the form of a thought provoking or enticing storyline, more a hack ‘em and slash ‘em kind of frolic. So if that is your thing then it might be of some interest to you.
