Painkiller Hell & Damnation's multiplayer mode will be free to play on Steam this weekend, Nordic Games have announced.

Starting today (January 31st) and running until February 3rd, 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 play the entire first chapter of the single player campaign.

Throughout the weekend there will also be the added bonus for players to purchase the game at a specially discounted price of just £6.12 - 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.”

Nordic Games will also reset the global leaderboards before the free weekend begins, giving players a warm-up phase until Friday 6pm GMT. The global top 3 in "Deathmatch" as of Sunday 9pm GMT will receive some exclusive painkiller prizes, details of which will be announced on Monday.

Painkiller Hell & Damnation was released for the PC on October 31st, 2012, and is set to launch on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 on April 5th.
