Nordic Games has announced that Steam will be hosting a free multiplayer weekend for Painkiller: Hell & Damnation, live now for all users. The multiplayer weekend is open to all, even those who have not yet purchased the videogame, with prizes available for skilled players.
Nordic Games have reset the global leaderboards before the free weekend begins, giving players a warm-up phase until 6pm GMT today. The global top three in “Deathmatch” as of Sunday 9pm GMT will receive some exclusive Painkiller prizes, details of which will be announced on Monday. Throughout the weekend there will also be the added bonus for players to purchase the videogame at a specially discounted price of just £6.12 GBP – a monstrous 66% off the original purchase price.
“This is a great promotion that will give those who have not had a taste of Painkiller a good taste of all the fast paced gory action,” said Thomas Reisinger, Key Account Manager Online Sales at Nordic Games. “Demon slayers can slash their way through to a great discount that is great value for money.”
The multiplayer weekend will allow players to jump in and experience all the multiplayer action from the main game including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Survival. Weekend bargain hunters will also be able to experience the entire first chapter of the single player campaign.
Painkiller: Hell & Damnation was released for PC on 31st October 2012.
