Shadow Warrior 3: Definitive Edition Revealed for PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC; Releasing Next Month With Free Upgrade for Current Owners
Devolver Digital revealed they will publish the Flying Wild Hog-developed action game Shadow Warrior 3: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam on February 16, 2023.
The release will be available as a free upgrade for current owners of the game and features a new Survival Mode, New Game Plus, and Hardcore Mode. Further, players will find performance enhancements across all stages.
Survival Mode is available after you finish the game and features three new battle arenas for you to test your skills in. Three new weapon skills will also be available when you complete a challenge. Additionally, New Game Plus adds new challenges to the story mode along with rewards and skins, which can be played on the new Hardcore Difficulty and Hero Mode, a modifier that shortens Lo Wang’s life to a limited number of respawns. Earn more of them by performing spectacular Finishers, but run out, and your progress is lost.
Shadow Warrior 3 has players assume the role of Lo Want with Orochi Zilla by his side. The two set out on a mission to recapture an ancient dragon they unleashed from an eternal prison. Both are armed with an arsenal of blades of bullets, which they’ll need to save the world. However, they’ll also need the mask of a dead god, a dragon’s egg, and magic to do so.
During gameplay, players can mix combat mechanics to bring carnage everywhere they go. Using a katana for up-close melee kills and combining it with gunplay to chain together kills. The movement will also play a role in the game flow, and players traverse through the levels using a grappling hook and other parkour-style actions.
