Although we've had better PlayStation Network titles since its release, Pain was certainly amusing when it first appeared on the Store in 2007. If you picked it up then and need an excuse for another masochistic go-round, the PlayStation blog has some good news for you.
They've announced that two new pieces of downloadable content will be on the way for Pain , and the first patch is by far the most important: it will allow you to play online! Online play will support all the offline multiplayer modes, and of course, they won't leave you blind; you'll get the benefit of text and voice chat. Sony is also preparing what they're calling the "Smack Pack," although we don't have any pricing or release details just yet. We do know it'll have two new gameplay modes, though- Darts and Fortress. The former lets up to four players attempt to destroy each other's strongholds by using a variety of explosives, and as for Darts…well, you can guess. Humans will be used as projectiles, and that means you can use either yourself or any innocent bystanders who just so happen to be in the…er…line of fire, so-to-speak. This should be enough to prompt you to make a purchase – if you haven't already – and if not, feel free to check out the other currently available DLC.
Pain is all about cutting loose and we could all use a bit of that every now and then, right? It may not be the best game you've ever played, but where else can you launch your human pinata from a giant slingshot atop a skyscraper?
