PainkillerHellAndDamnation

This spring, while nature lovers are outside frolicking in rain showers and gardens of budding flowers, stay inside, sit your ass down in front of that glorious HD TV of yours, cuddle up with your favorite gaming console and blast through the demonic forces of Purgatory.

Painkiller Hell & Damnation, The Farm 51′s remade HD edition of People Can Fly’s classic FPS first released on PC last Halloween, is now scheduled for PS3 and Xbox 360 release on April 5th. It was initially slated to ship this month, but the developers are taking extra time to make sure the console versions are “in line with the quality and standard of the PC game.”

Both standard and collector’s edition copies will be available on both platforms. The standard edition will cost $29.99 and the collector’s edition, which will include the usual assortment of DLC bonuses, art book, poster, making-of disc, stickers, postcards and so on, will run just $10 more.
