Shadow Warrior 2 is slashing onto PC next month

Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital have announced that Shadow Warrior 2 is coming to PC on October 13, with consoles to follow in 2017.

Acting as a direct sequel to the ludicrously fun 2013 title, which in itself was a remake of the 1997 original, Shadow Warrior 2 aims to be just as silly, grotesque and fun to play.

Shadow Warrior 2 is now available to pre-order via Steam, GOG and the Humble Store at 10 percent off. Those who get in early will gain access to the ‘Razorback Chainsaw Katana,’ which sounds pretty badass.

Devolver Digital is yet to confirm a release for the PS4 and Xbox One versions, but we can probably expect them early next year.

Shadow Warrior 2 will once again follow protagonist Lo Wang as he slices his way throughout countless demonic creatures with an array of melee weapons, firearms and mystic abilities.

The sequel will also implement four-player co-op into the mix, letting you go up against the denizens of hell with your closest friends. How cute.

“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,” said Michal Szustak, Studio Director at Flying Wild Hog. “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.”

Shadow Warrior 2 will be available for PC on October 13. Be sure to check out our preview to see what we thought!
