This article contains plot details about an upcoming episode.
The player takes on the role of Belial, a half-demon, half-angel. Rejected by both Heaven and Hell, Belial was imprisoned by Samael and Cerberus, the locks to his prison bound to Lucifer's very life force.
However, when Daniel Garner kills Lucifer at the end of Painkiller, Belial is released from his imprisonment, and seeks revenge against Samael and Cerberus for imprisoning him.
To do this, he fights his way across hell and, later, Purgatory, battling damned souls along the way.
Eventually, he manages to kill Cerberus and defeat Samael in combat. While he cannot kill Samael, he instead cuts his wings, effectively trapping him. Though he believes he should feel satisfaction, he senses that Daniel Garner needs his help, and sets off to find him, claiming that there is: "no rest for the weary".
