Painkiller: Overdose demo


DreamCatcher has popped a PC demo up for its new Painkiller game Overdose.

It started out life as a fan-made mod that allowed you to destroy things as half-angel and half-demon gatekeeper Belial, but was soon given a wad of notes so that it could flesh itself out into a proper offering.

You will now be able to slaughter around 40 freshly demented and Hell-spawned nasties with an armoury of six new weapons. Then, if you get a little bored, you can head online to try out the bundle of new multiplayer maps.

Painkiller: Overdose has been put together by Mindware, unlike the previous Painkiller and Painkiller: Battle out of Hell instalments that were made by People Can Fly.

Painkiller is a first-person shooter that takes place in Purgatory and Hell, and aims to bring about the kind of joy games like Doom and Serious Sam put in your hands.

Pop over to the Sunday morning-inspired Painkiller: Battle out of Hell review for more information.
