PSN ragdoll injury sim Pain returning as free-to-play game

Idol Minds' ragdoll-abusing action game Pain will return to the PlayStation Network as a free-to-play title, Sony Brazil revealed this week.

The revised version of Pain is developed by Argentinian studio QB9, which Sony recently recruited as part of its Latin American indie incubation program. Footage shown at the ongoing Brazil Game Show indicated that the free-to-play version of Pain will retain all gameplay features and modes from the original 2007 release, including the popular multiplayer Bowling mode.

A release date for the new free-to-play version of Pain has not been announced.
