Description [fr]

Un FPS mettant Daniel Garner aux prises avec les puissances démoniaques, par le studio The Farm 51 (édité par Nordic Games).
Il utilise le moteur Unreal Engine (dans le Bottin).

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation est un remake moderne, effrayant et rapide d'un classique du shooter. Le démon est de retour ! Il se manifeste par d'innombrables sombres créatures se disputant le sort des âmes emprisonnées dans le purgatoire. Daniel Garner est à nouveau dans la position peu enviable du bras armé et du jouet de la lumière se frayant un chemin dans des hordes de démons et de monstres.
A cet effet, il a été doté d'arguments convaincants, tel que des pieux, des lames rotatives et d'autres équipements utiles. Des questions demeurent ... "Peut-il arrêter les créatures puissantes qui se dressent sur son chemin ? Parviendra-t-il à quitter l'enfer du purgatoire et se retrouver de nouveau réuni avec sa femme Catherine ?"

Description [en]

Evil has returned! Demonic powers are manifesting themselves as a myriad of dark creatures, fighting over the fates of imprisoned souls caught in Purgatory. Once again, it is up to Daniel Garner, in the unenviable position of being the Curse of Darkness and the Toy of Light, to fight his way past hordes of demons and fiends.

For that purpose, he has been provided with convincing "arguments", such as stakes, rotating saw blades and other useful equipment. Questions remain... "Can he stop the powerful creatures that stand in his way? Will he ever leave the hell of Purgatory and be reunited with his wife Catherine?"

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is a fast-paced, thrilling modern remake of an all-action shooter Classic!


Wikipedia :

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is a first-person shooter video game, both a remake of and a sequel to Painkiller, developed by The Farm 51 and published by Nordic Games.

Gameplay

The player has to get through each level, from start to finish, by slaughtering countless demons. The game is divided into several chapters, each with several levels. Each level presents a new location with various themes and includes castles, monasteries, graveyards, and more. Several classic weapons will be returning including the Painkiller, the stakethrower, the shotgun, and the electrodriver, however, new guns will also be available such as the Soulcatcher, a.k.a. the Small Sucking Gun, which shoots saw blades in primary firing mode and sucks the souls out of the enemies with its secondary firing.

Painkiller: Hell & Damnation will also add several multiplayer modes to the series. The entire single-player campaign can be played by two people and the level of difficulty adjusts in accordance with the 2 players, either through the number of enemies or the amount of hit points. In survival mode, up to eight players battle for survival in a limited area of one map. Endless waves of enemy hordes will attack the player or players. Other player vs player based game modes include deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture the flag and duels.

Plot

After crushing the forces of Hell and Purgatory in the original titles, Daniel Garner was denied seeing his wife, Catherine. Now, with no faith left, he sat in the cemetery, where his quest once began. Suddenly, Death itself appeared, proposing Daniel a new bargain: reunion with his wife in exchange for 7,000 souls. Daniel reluctantly agrees, receiving the Soulcatcher gun. He is sent to familiar places, battling hordes of demon spawn, again defeating the formidable Necrogiant, Alastor, and Swamp Thing. An old ally, Eve, reappears during this quest, warning that Death cannot be trusted, but Daniel didn't forget her own betrayal at the end of Painkiller: Battle out of Hell. Daniel avoids her as she tries to persuade him that everything is not as it seems, and the only reason he's so successful at killing demons and not succumbing to their power is that he is not really dead.

Eventually, Daniel returns to Death, with the Soulcatcher filled. Death, however, is not pleased, as there are only 6,999 souls, and not 7,000, but still advises Daniel to get the final soul: that of Eve. Daniel, disgusted by such a turn of events, spares Eve, infuriating Death. Battle ensues, culminating with Death's defeat and an opening of a strange white portal. By taking the portal, Daniel discovers himself alive, lying in bed, in hospital. All this time he was alive, but in coma, bound by Death to an endless battle in Purgatory. Suddenly, Eve appears, claiming that the souls collected enabled Death to reunite with his brothers, other Horsemen of Apocalypse: Pestilence, Hunger, and War, which now plotting to invade Earth. Daniel feels he will be unable to battle the hordes of Hell without the power he wielded in Purgatory, but Eve comforts him, saying they're not alone. A door opens, revealing demonic visage of Belial (from Painkiller: Overdose).

Features

Along with the extensive improvements to the graphics and the redesign of the single-player campaign, the game mechanics have been refined and lots of innovations have been introduced:

☑ Co-op mode: the entire single-player campaign can be played by two people. The level of difficulty adjusts in accordance with the 2 players (either through the number of enemies or the amount of hit points)

☑ Survival mode: in survival mode, up to 8 players battle for survival in a limited area of one map. Endless waves of enemy hordes crash over the brave challengers. A look at the rankings shows who was able to resist the longest.

☑ Along with familiar classics such as the Painkiller, the stake gun, the shotgun, and the electrodriver, a new instrument of death has been added to the arsenal: the Soulcatcher, a.k.a. the SSG (Small Sucking Gun); okay, it isn’t small, but it not only shoots saw blades in primary firing mode, but also literally sucks the souls out of countless enemy types in secondary firing. The icing on the cake: enemies hit by the combo attack will fight minions on your side for a short amount of time.

☑ Speaking of countless enemy types, improvements have also been made here. All enemy types have been designed with significant variety. The “patients” now wield several different weapons (such as axes, saws, polearms, swords, etc.), wear different armour sets, and nevertheless all have the same goal: to eliminate Daniel Garner.
