PAIN Amusement Park: First Trailer and Preview

Travis Williams's Avatar + Posted by Travis Williams on Jul 08, 2008 // Sr. Producer, SCEA

These past seven months have really been busy for the PAIN team. In addition to releasing our updates we have been feverishly building the “better mousetrap.” The DOWNTOWN area in PAIN was a huge success for everyone involved! I remember some of my first interviews where I had to explain PAIN to people who haven’t played before. Let me tell you, that wasn’t even remotely easy. Seven months later let me try that again …

PAIN is a game that picks up where other games leave off. In every other game when you are smacked so hard you fall down the game dusts you off, and makes you try again. When you get smacked so hard you fall down it’s time to START playing PAIN! You’ve barely gotten warmed up!

Now you know how to OOCH. Your MONKEYS have been SPANKED. Your FUN WITH EXPLOSIVES skillz are legendary. And MIMES … they get weak in the knees when your PSN Name is whispered. You’re quite the master of disaster.

DOWNTOWN … has so been destroyed.

Now it’s time to hit The Amusement Park for some rest and relaxation right?

WRONG! This Park needs to know your name.

What’s this?

HOT n COLD teddy bears that do the robot? Bouncing CLOWNS that need tossing and smacking? How about a little SHOT CALLIN’ to prove your skillz are better than anyone else around. What kind of Amusement Park is this?

It’s the PAIN ABUSEMENT PARK. This time you can invite your friends to join you. We have online multiplayer capability so you can finally pit your skills against other people on the PLAYSTATION NETWORK. We also support the new PlayStation Trophies. This might be useful to see how awesome your competition is before you challenge them to a PAIN game. There’s a whole lot of content in this Park. For a first preview of the PAIN Amusement Park, head on over to GamesRadar.

I’m very proud of this add-on. A lot of these ideas came from us .. and quite a bit from YOU, our players. If you haven’t been heard, I suggest you get over to www.painps3.com and make your presence known … I already posted a brand new blog about how we came up with this add-on.

See you at the Fun Spot … and keep your “Pimp Hand” strong. You’ll need it.

    The Amusement Park level is scheduled to arrive later this summer. Trophy support will arrive around this time.

Can’t wait for the trophies and the new board!

Sweet, will it be free? (doubt it lol) will it come bundled with the original pain? if so, will it be at a discounted price for lets say $13-16? If so, I might actually get this

So will online multiplayer be for the park only or will it be a patch for downtown too?

    Online multiplayer will work for the Park as well as Downtown.

    The Amusement Park is an add-on to PAIN.

Good to see that this game will include Trophy support. Can’t wait for more and everything Sony has to offer at E3.

    Double, I think PAIN has a lock on the Pimp Hand market in gaming. Keep it strong, and we\’ll see you online.

Pain redeemed. VERY good job.

Remember, $4.99-$6.99 is the sweet spot.

Will the Pain trophies be retroactive since we can’t move the save off of our PS3′s? Please say yes?

    Big P,
    We worked out a way to make new trophies for your old trophies. Kinda hard to explain, but you won\’t be disappointed – You WILL be getting some trophy lovin\’ for Downtown.

+ Schitthammer on July 8th, 2008 at 4:23 pm said:

Travis, this looks awesome and I’m definitely buying it.

I hope to see more levels after this one, but not so far apart. 8 months with just the downtown level was PAINful.

    + jcoker on July 8th, 2008 at 7:08 pm said:

    Hammer,
    We are getting better at what we do, and we think we have a pretty good idea of what the PAIN community likes. Online Multiplayer is a big undertaking for us, but once the Amusement Park is released this summer, we\’ll have a new environment to you pretty soon. No more 8 month waits, cat. Oh, and the environment after the Amusement Park? Three words: Oh. My. Good-Goobly-Goo.

+ X1rtam on July 8th, 2008 at 4:26 pm said:

Wow, before I was kind of expecting this level to be mediocre, but now after seeing this I’m sold. Trophies are icing on the cake!

+ jqtaxpayer on July 8th, 2008 at 4:29 pm said:

So was there going to be a patch this week to add trophies to the existing game or was I hearing things?

Regardless, can’t wait to try out this new area… just picked this game up a few days ago and am pretty intrigued with it.

    All in good time, FTW. Gotta reveal a little at a time. We\’re still rockin\’ lingerie at this point, but we\’ll share more as we get closer to launch. By the way, I DO look killer in a camisole and pumps.

I was hoping its free, being you are over charged for Pain to begin with. But I get the feeling these features are not free.

Nice guys! Can’t wait to check this out.

Unfortunately, I cannot watch videos from the PSBlog anymore. I’m using FF3 and tested against IE7. I haven’t seen anyone complain so I will just chalk this up as an issue on my side. Just an FYI.

PLEASE RELEASE THE TROPHY PATCH TODAY!!!!!!!!!! WE CANT SURVIVE ON SUPER STARDUST HD
i was really hoping for trophies soon…. this has disappointed me.
please just release the trophy patch now do it quickly before warhawk and burnout get it.
it is 100% sure to boost game sales and the more people that have it the better chance there is of people buying this expansion. i already own it so im not bothered but id really love to see trophys soon. super stardust hd is good but it only has like 17 trophys which i had in a few days what am i supposed to do for trophys over the next few weeks?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RELEASE THE TROPHY PATCH SOON!!!! WE NEED TROPHY PATCHES NOW SUPER STARDUST HAS BEEN BURNED OUT!!!!!

    The Amusement Park will be an add-on for PAIN, so you need to have Downtown in order to play it.
