Shadow Warrior 2 gets a new free DLC and a new update

Devolver and Flying Wild Hog have released a new free DLC for Shadow Warrior 2, as well as a new update. The Way of The Wang free DLC brings seven brutal Trials, new Crafting Modes, a new weapon and three new difficulty Tiers for Insane difficulty.

On the other hand, the new game update corrects blade intersection test, fixes missing shadows after changing a map or weather, features some optimizations and adds some missing minimaps.
