Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital have announced that first-person slasher Shadow Warrior 2 will launch October 13th on the PC. Shadow Warrior 2 fans can pre-order the game via Steam, GOG, and Humble to secure 10% off and get the exclusive ‘Razorback’ chainsaw katana. Owners of Flying Wild Hog’s previous games Shadow Warrior and Hard Reset Redux will receive an additional 10% off the pre-order price.
Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang.
“Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world he inadvertently corrupted.”
In Shadow Warrior 2, players will battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in this inventive sequel to the best-selling remake from 2013.
Players will be able to complete outrageous missions, collect powerful new armor, arcane relics of legend and choose from an array of masterfully designed weaponry – including a katana chainsaw.
Shadow Warrior 2 is bigger than its predecessor and has been designed as an open, vertically scalable world to explore. Each new unique environment is jaw-droppingly gorgeous and hosts a procedurally generated loot system so no two playthroughs will ever be the same.
Michal Szustak, Studio Director at Flying Wild Hog, said:
“The reception to each new bit of Shadow Warrior 2 that we share has been thrilling and our team is excited – and relieved – to finally share our work with the fans. We think our small studio has accomplished something special with Shadow Warrior 2 and hope that both fans of the classic FPS and those that enjoy more modern shooters will enjoy the game.”
