Painkiller Hell & Damnation 'Heaven's Above' DLC Now Available


Nordic Games have announced that the ‘Heaven’s Above’ DLC for Painkiller Hell & Damnation is now available via Steam.

The fifth DLC available takes players out of the first-person shooter perspective and presents itself as a top-down shooter for the first time in any Painkiller game.  With this never before seen viewpoint, players will be able to take in even more of the run and gun action as they take control of the battlefield from above. It is available at a discounted price of £6.74 until June 27th when then it returns to the normal price of £8.99.

It comes including 5 campaign maps which are Graveyard, Town, Babel, Angkor, and Pentagon which can be played in both single player and co-op mode. Players will encounter bigger and badder boss fights that can be won using any of the original Painkiller Hell & Damnation weapons plus the throwable mine!. The full feature list of the DLC is as follows:

  • Control the battlefield from above
  • 5 campaign maps (playable in single player and co-op mode): Graveyard, Town, Babel, Angkor, Pentagon
  • Encounter one of the hardest big guys in Purgatory: The Stone Golem aka Oriental Demon
  • New power-ups and environmental weapons (including howitzer gun, fire traps, electro shockers and squeezers)
  • New Steam achievements
  • All weapons from the original PKHD plus throwable mines

Reinhard Pollice, Business & Product Development Director at Nordic Games stated:

We’ve made a commitment to release several DLCs throughout this year to ensure that we provide players with the best Painkiller experience possible, It started as an internal idea, then we prototyped Painkiller with top-down gameplay and it looked promising so we were eager to further explore the idea which ultimately led to this DLC. We know that this has the potential to be something bigger but at the moment we’re looking forward to offering this rare experience to our community and are excited to see their reaction.
