Painkiller H&D DLC 5 is here: Heavens Above
Sometimes all you need to revitalize an old idea is a fresh perspective, and Nordic games have taken that advice literally with their fifth DLC pack for Painkiller Hell and Damnation. Titled Heavens Above, this DLC pack is a 5-map top-down shooter that somehow makes Painkiller even more retro by taking it into Crimsonland territory. The game is out now on XBLA, Steam and PSN, and will have a 25% discount until June 27th, when it goes back to it's normal $10 price.
To be honest I was feeling that Painkiller was getting a little stale--even in HD--floating more on nostalgia than anything else. But for some reason I really want to play Heavens Above, so I guess Nordic has done their job. Hell, I want this to be a proper spinoff--just watch this trailer and you'll get what I mean.
