Shadow Warrior 2 was released on October 13, 2016 by Devolver. The game was developed by Flying Wild Hog. Shadow Warrior 2 is a first person action shooter.
Shadow Warrior 2 can be best seen as a shoot and loot type of game. This is similar to gameplay in Rage.
The game is set 5 years after the original Shadow Warrior. Once again, players assume the role of modern ninja warrior Lo Wang and must battle armies of demons that have invaded the world sent by another dimension under Zilla command.
While this game can be played single player, it really is designed for co-op multiplayer. In co-op mode, each player experiences the narrative as Lo Wang but sees other players as different anonymous ninjas.
The game is less linear and more open than the original game..Jumping and climbing are new,
Missions are also less structured and players can go back to earlier ones to upgrade skills etc. The game has taken on some role playing elements.
The soundtrack seems to be targetting the under 14 crowd with lots of crude humor.
The graphics are more brightly colored than many recent titles which tend to use more natural dark scenes. Shadow Warrior is more outdoors so the use of brighter colors makes more sense.
The game features over 70 different weapons, The mêlée seems to be the game’s best mode.
The game features Steamworks with achievements and trading cards.
