The folks at Dreamcatcher send us word that they're releasing yet another demo for the absolutely fun FPS title Painkiller.

Toronto, October 7, 2004 ? DreamCatcher Games today announced that it will release another single-player demo for its smash-hit, Painkiller, on Tuesday, October 12th. The demo will premiere at at 12 p.m. EDT, and will be available around the web shortly after.

The demo features the latest version of the PAIN Engine and with it, the latest enhancements from the 1.35 update. In the popular ?Military Base? level, players will enjoy effects such as heat and haze distortion, light blooms, per pixel specular mapping, new shader effects and tweaks for the latest video cards. All in all, a mere taste of what the PAIN Engine will offer in the expansion pack, Painkiller: Battle out of Hell.

Painkiller has earned numerous fantastic review scores and ?Editor?s Choice Awards? thanks to jaw-dropping graphics and intense physics-based gameplay. Featured as the only 1v1 tournament game at last Summer?s CPL Extreme World Championships, and as a benchmark for some the industry?s top Editors, Painkiller is a definite ?Game of the Year? contender, along-side the heaviest hitters in the 2004 PC shooter genre.

Painkiller currently retails for $29.99 USD and has an ESRB of ?M? for Mature in North America and ?16+ PEGI? in Europe. Painkiller: Battle out of Hell ships in North America on November 11th and begins shipping across Europe on November 10th. For more information, visit
