Painkiller Hell & Damnation, a remake and a sequel for the immensely popular Painkiller made by People Can Fly in 2004, will be arriving on Linux in April.

The developer of the new Painkiller Hell & Damnation title, The Farm 51, will provide players with a Mod-Kit which will enable users to produce their own personal game.

“Using the Mod-Kit, players will be able to delve the depths of their imaginations to craft a totally unique Painkiller world through the use of pioneering personalised items, maps, weapons and multiplayer skins, all within the Steam Workshop framework”, stated the official announcement.

Painkiller Hell & Damnation uses Unreal Engine 3 and recreates the gameplay of the original Painkiller, but it also adds new levels and weapons.

“As well as launching the Mod-Kit, we are working to provide regular updates and further improvements to the existing content and framework.” said Reinhard Pollice, Business & Product Development Director at Nordic Games. “We’re also working to port good old Daniel Garner to Linux and Mac this April/May.”

Most likely the game will be available on Steam for Linux. It you want to find out more about the game you should check out the official Steam website.
