Nordic Games has announced the acquisition of Painkiller publisher DreamCatcher. The label will be separate under the Nordic label, with the aforementioned game part of a relaunch of an “extensive” back catalogue of games. “After the incorporation of the JoWood and The Adventure Company publishing label, DreamCatcher is the third and last to follow for the time being,” commented Nordic Games CEO Lars Wingefors in the press release. “Our approach is to assess the performance of DreamCatcher’s portfolio through back-catalog sales, and as a consequence develop sequels to its bestselling brands and licenses, just as we did with our other two publishing labels.”
The firm is in negotiations with North American companies regarding the distribution and marketing of products. Thanks, Blue.

IGN’s got an exclusive on a brand new Painkiller game, titled Resurrection.
The player takes on the role of Wild Bill Sherman, a CIA assassin who works for highly placed members of the government. Though he can claim to be doing some good in the world by ridding it of weapon smugglers and drug lords, his missions to assassinate his employers’ political rivals are a bit less morally ambiguous and even a killer-for-hire has to have some principles.
The FPS crowd will be happy. It’s a PC-only affair for the fourth quarter, but there may be a 360 port to follow.

On GameTV.cz. It’s a bit rubbish, really. The RPG’s not out until the end of next year, and there’s very little to go on in the trailer. Watch it anyway.
