Earlier yesterday, Devolver ran a Facebook giveaway that went downhill. The company launched a promotion on Facebook where fans of Shadow Warrior could like the new Facebook page and receive a Steam key for the original version of Shadow Warrior. However, there were a lot of issues with that promotion as Devolver was not ready yet for that promotion.
PC gamers have been getting constant MySQL errors while trying to retrieve their codes, something that led to a big disappointment across the game’s fans.
Thankfully, Devolver reacted quickly and made Shadow Warrior classic free for everyone. Yeap, that’s right. The classic version of Shadow Warrior can be downloaded for free from Steam, and will be distributed for free indefinitely. This means that you don’t have to like the FB page of Shadow Warrior anymore, you can go ahead on Steam and download the game.
Still, we feel the need to link back to its FB page, so make sure to like it.
The remake of Shadow Warrior is planned for a Fall 2013 release on PC and next-gen consoles.
