'Painkiller: Hell Wars' (Xbox) Gets Delayed... Again

by Rainier on June 1, 2006 @ 8:01 a.m. PDT

Painkiller is a first-person horror shooter, designed to satisfy the gamer's hunger for intense, fast-paced action. You are Painkiller, a mercenary for hire, charged with cleaning out nests of the undead. But an unholy pact with a demon unknowingly puts you square in the middle of a fight for control of the underworld... with the future of humanity hanging in the balance.

“We want to ensure that all of the best features from the PC version are fully integrated into Painkiller: Hell Wars and that the Painkiller experience on Xbox exceeds our customer’s high expectations for this successful brand,” said Byron Gaum, Global Product Marketing Manager at DreamCatcher Games. “Too often, titles are rushed to market that fall short. DreamCatcher is committed to making Painkiller: Hell Wars a must-have title for the Xbox, and quite possibly the last great shooter on the Xbox platform.”

“With millions of gamers still playing on first generation Xboxes, and the market ripe for a new top-notch shooter, we want to deliver the very best game possible and surpass the legacy of the original, award-winning PC version of Painkiller,” said Marshall Zwicker, Vice President of Marketing at DreamCatcher Games. “We know when Painkiller: Hell Wars is released later this year it will live up to the hype, and offer an absolutely unforgettable gaming experience.”

Stranded in a place between Heaven and Hell, gamers take on the role of Daniel Garner in Painkiller: Hell Wars. To escape purgatory and receive purification, you must fight hordes of hellish monsters to help stop an impending Unholy War between the forces of good and evil.
