Nordic Games and The Farm 51 announced today that they will be releasing five new packs of downloadable content for Painkiller: Hell & Damnation over the course of the next year. Two packs of DLC have already been released since the game came out for PC back in October.

The newest DLC, The Clock Strikes Meat Night, is available to download on Steam starting today for $6.99. It includes the following new content:
- Dual weapons power-up: that’s right, Daniel had steroids for breakfast over the past weeks. The following weapons are available for Akimbo in Singleplayer and Coop: Minigun, Shotgun, Stakegun, Electrodriver.
- New Tarot Card: Health Stealer - Daniel is now leeching life out of his foes and you know what that means, right? This makes Daniel the Perpetuum Mobile of Death, that’s for sure.
- Expansion of the Singleplayer and Cooperative gameplay: new actions, secret areas, usable mechanisms, more enemy variations.
- New Enemies: Loki, Ninja, and Leper Monk.
- New unique character set: Lepers (medieval zombies).
- New Environmental Weapon: Meat Mine (the head of a dismembered Leper explodes as a mine after being charged with Soul Catcher).
Two single player maps expanded with content:
- Asylum: Underground/sewers section of the size of the original map has been added to the level "teleport to insanity.” After beating the level in the “original” way, Daniel is thrown into a maze of mirrors, teleporting him between various sections, leading to a massive outdoor slaughter-fest.
- Bridge: Huge new Winter Town from the World War II era has been added to the original map. Zombie soldiers and tanks are still on patrol. Boss fight has been added. According to rumors it’s got something to do with gas tanks. New gameplay elements: Cart-chase and cable railway now have to be fought actively.
One New Single-player Map (Town) remade and adapted - combat actions are rearranged, additional enemies (Templars) appear there.
Nordic Games and The Farm 51 are also supposedly working on a brand new project.
“Working with Nordic Games is an absolute pleasure and they have really bolstered the presence of Painkiller,” said Wojciech Pazdur, Development Director at The Farm 51. “At the same time as working on a string of DLC’s we’re also excited to be a part a fantastic new project that we cannot wait to be announced.”
