Farm 51 will be encouraging players to get creative with their FPS Painkiller Hell & Damnation by releasing mode tools and Steam Workshop integration.
The beta of the mod kit is expected to go online some time early April and will give fans the opportunity to create their own items, maps weapons and multiplayer skins.
“The Mod Kit is a great tool that we want to make available for the Painkiller and its modding community. When you look at the history of video games, specifically at the mod-history in the FPS and RTS department, a serious proportion of big names originally come from exactly that community,” said Philipp Brock, PR and Marketing at Nordic Games. “Our best interest is to make all tools available for the collective creative potential of the Painkiller community.”
There is also good news for Linux and Mac gamers, the game will launch for these platforms in April.
“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.”
