Painkiller: Hell & Damnation Entering Beta

Starting today, Nordic Games’s remake of 2004′s Painkiller is entering a closed beta phase. Dubbed Painkiller: Hell & Damnation, the game revitalises the modern FPS classic with some Unreal Engine 3 shine whilst staying rooted in the frantic FPS style of Doom and Quake.

Successful applicants will be the first to try out the ultimate horror FPS and will also be able to provide feedback to help the developers crush bugs whilst players crush faces over four modes of gameplay: Single Player and Network Co-Op along with Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. I’m itching to get in on this beta as I’m sure many of you are. Keys will be available from selected media partners, Facebook, and the Painkiller forums in the coming weeks. You can also sign up on the Painkiller website.

Also because we here at GAMElitist care about you all so very, very much, we’ve got some screenshots for you to drool over whilst waiting for that beta invitation to appear in your inbox.

Enjoy!
