Any PAIN fans out there? As one of the most popular PSN titles out there, this game is receiving numerous updates these days. Not yet a fan? Well the latest free title update might just get you to shell out the dough. You know all those multiplayer modes available in-game, that you can only play with people on the same PS3? Well, starting right now you can download the latest patch and bring all those modes to the internet and play against your friends! The patch brings the game up to version 2.93, and weighs in at a solid 384 MB. Also launching today is a premium DLC pack, PAIN‘s “Smack Pack.” Associate Producer Jason Coker had this to say about the latest DLC:

We’re about to drop the Smack Pack on you (sold separately), which includes the Darts and Fortress game Modes. As I’m sure you know, traditional Darts wouldn’t be suitable for PAIN. We wouldn’t dare make something as simple as launching a character into an oversized dartboard. Instead, you have to launch you character toward a giant sticky billboard with multiple bullseyes painted on it, in the process grabbing another character (or bomb) and chucking it at the billboard. Sounds simple enough, eh? Oh, I forgot to mention the fact that your opponents have distractions to jack you up during your flight to the billboard. It makes it even more satisfying to clear the distractions and pull off a bullseye, so I hope your game is in order.

Go for the PAINful bullseye!

Go for the PAINful bullseye!

Fortress is the other half of the Smack Pack, and it pits you against up to three opponents, each of you with a giant fortress on a floating platform in the sky. On offense, your task is to aim at an opponent’s fortress, launch and grab an exploding object, and chuck it at their fortress to inflict maximum damage. Every bit of damage you do costs that player points, and when their score reaches zero, that player is eliminated. Obviously, we’d never make it easy for you to do something like that, so at the beginning of each game, every player gets a chance to select their defenses, which range from everything from reinforcements that toughen up your walls, to flying mailboxes and cereal that knock launching enemies out of play, to blue screens that fly up and take out enemies and/or their projectiles. Fortress is a blast to play (no pun intended), so make sure your trash talk is ready.

That pack really sounds like it’s worth the measly $2.99 price tag. Happy downloading!
