Get ready to go back for some more over-the-top first person shooter action. Developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital will release Shadow Warrior 2, the sequel to its over-the-top first person shooter reboot, in 2016 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
The original Shadow Warrior was released way back in 1997 by Duke Nukem creators 3D Realms as a satire on Asian action movies, with the player controlling the assassin Lo Wang. In 2013, Flying Wild Hog released a rebooted version of the game on the PC, which was a bit more serious in tone but still had Lo Wang as the central character, fighting his way against monsters and humans with a variety of weapons. The game was released for the Xbox One in 2014.
While the reboot of Shadow Warrior was a single player game, the sequel will add in four-player co-op support. Here's a quick description:
- 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.
Shadow Warrior 2 will be shown during E3 2015 next week in Los Angeles
