Shadow Warrior 2 is a direct sequel to a 2013 game, which, in turn, was a remake of a popular FPS from the 1990. The original game was created by the legendary developer, 3D Realms studio, and run on the same game engine as the iconic Duke Nukem 3D. The aforementioned remake and its sequel, released on PC, PS4 and XONE, were created by a Polish developer, Flying Wild Hog, who previously had a pretty good debut releasing the futuristic shooter Hard Reset.

Story

Shadow Warrior 2 is set 5 years after the events of the first game. During that time the world has changed a lot, since people learned to coexist with previously hostile demons. Once again you play as Lo Wang, the protagonist of the first Shadow Warrior, who now leads the lonely life of a mercenary working for a local Yakuza. However, something goes wrong, and the hero has to face armies of evil once again.

Gameplay

When compared with the previous title, the gameplay did not change much. Wang takes on the demons using a wide arsenal of melee weapons and firearms. While wielding various types of blades he can make precise cuts to chop off parts of the enemy's body. The game also includes the progression system known from the first game, as well as weapon customization.

Game modes

What is new in Shadow Warrior 2 on PC, PS4 and XONE is a co-op mode for up to four people, in which a group of players fights off enemies while trying to complete mission objectives (including optional ones). Each hero can be customized by picking his weapons, armor, and extra items, which you gradually unlock as you progress. It is noteworthy that, in both single player campaign and the co-op mode, the locations are procedurally generated, which makes each playthrough unique.
