Independent developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital announced Shadow Warrior 2, a follow-up to the global best-selling first-person shooter Shadow Warrior for PC, Xbox One and PS4. Shadow Warrior 2 marks the return of Lo Wang and his trademark use of blades, bullets, and a sharp tongue to strike down the demonic hordes. Shadow Warrior 2 is currently planned for 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
â€œThe incredible reception of Shadow Warrior from both longtime fans and gamers new to the series was overwhelming,â€ said Michal Szustak, Studio Director at Flying Wild Hog. â€œShadow Warrior 2 will expand on and improve every element that made the original so unique and strike a balance between classic FPS action and modern design.â€
Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hogâ€™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. Battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in spectacular procedurally-generated landscapes to complete daring missions and collect powerful new weapons, armor, and arcane relics of legend.
â€œWhile the game is bursting with stunning visuals and exquisite combat, itâ€™s the near constant barrage of Wang jokes that is going to move product,â€ said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. â€œThe kids love thinly veiled dick jokes. Love â€˜em.â€
Shadow Warrior 2 will be available to demo via appointment only at E3 2015 with the *first look at gameplay debuting live on Twitch.TV Monday, June 15th at 8:30pm BST.
