This one totally slipped under my radar, but I quickly remedied it with an immediate purchase from Steam. Painkiller: Hell & Damnation has received a new set of DLC called Heaven's Above. What does it do? Turns the FPS into a top down co-opable shooter.
The new top down shooter gameplay includes five new campaign maps (playable in single player and co-op both locally and online): Graveyard, Town, Babel, Angkor, Pentagon Encounter. There's also a new big ass boss to take on, the Stone Golem aka Oriental Demon. Also included are new power-ups and environmental weapons including howitzer gun, fire traps, electro shockers and squeezers. Also at your disposal are some new weapons including throwable mines. Finally rounding things out are brand news Steam achievements to earn.
The DLC requires the original Painkiller: Hell & Damnation (reviewed here) and will set you back $9.99. But you can snag the content in the next 24 hours for 25% off.
Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is still set to be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this summer. Hopefully it'll include some of these great pieces of content that's been released post launch - especially this one.
