Painkiller's Multiplayer mode is powered by GameSpy for in-game and external server browsing. We're currently targeting 32-player servers with the following 5 modes:
1) Deathmatch - The objective in Deathmatch is to kill as many opponents as possible. The player is on his own, playing in "me against the world" fashion.
2) Team Deathmatch - A mutation of Deathmatch, in which the competition is between teams made up of a number of players, trying to outkill the other teams.3) People Can Fly - A modification of Deathmatch 1 on 1. In this mode both players have only the Rocket Launchers. The damage to the other player can be done only when he is airborne: it can be done by shooting the rocket exactly under the enemy's feet. . Je zult echter moeten wachten voordat je mee mag doen in dit spirituele knalfestijn, want de officiele Painkiller pagina laat weten dat het spel pas in maart 2004 in de winkels zal verschijnen. Voor de Xbox versie, die ook in 2004 verschijnt, werd geen exacte periode genoemd. Meer info over de engine en opties van Painkiller kun je vinden op deze pagina.
