Originally I planned publishing another blog entry, but as this offer ends in 24 hours, I thought this deserves a short write-up. After having already covered the release of Shadow Warrior 2 and Shadow Warrior Classic Redux, this modern remake has always been on my wishlist, but I haven’t had time to actually get it.
The story is again just an excuse for brainless shooting and decapitating monsters and humans alike, as it’s about Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun Lo Wang who has to acquire a legendary blade of limitless power. Of course he’s betrayed and seeks revenge, taking on all sorts of demons with gun, blade, and magic. Slicing enemies apart with a katana and putting everyone and everything down with upgraded guns means that there’s enough bloodshed to paint the screen red, while mystical powers add a bit more strategy to proceedings. Staying true to the classic 3D Realms shooter, the protagonist delivers tongue-in-cheek one-liners to make the violent game more comic than serious, which can also be seen in the fun 80ies-music trailer.
The game comes with a special edition that includes the Serious Sam 3 sledgehammer and the Hotline Miami katana as weapons in addition to the digital artbook and the official soundtrack. Considering that this would currently cost around 45 Euros and you’ll get it all for free, don’t wait too long and simply get it before the offer expires. Don’t forget that you have to redeem your free Steam key by 10 AM Pacific Time on Saturday, August 5th, 2017.
