in October, The Farm 51's 'ground-up', high definition, remake of the popular FPS, Painkiller
, has now been given a release date.
Already released on PC, the console version of Painkiller Hell & Damnation
, which previously had a January release window, is now due on April 5th 2013.
According to Reinhard Pollice, Production and Business Development Manager of the game's publisher, Nordic Games:
We have been working around the clock to bring the Xbox 360 version of the game in line with the quality and standard of the PC game. There has been a slight delay so that the console communities can enjoy the fiendishly ghoulish experience that we know they want and deserve. In taking this additional time to add the final touches, we know that players will realise that the best things do come to those who wait!
While you wait patiently for April 5th to come around, kill the pain by taking a look at a trailer showing off the remake's features
