Shadow Warrior 2 Coming to PS4 Next Year

The teams at independent developer Flying Wild Hog and raucous game label Devolver Digital are thrilled to announce Shadow Warrior 2, the full throttle sequel to offbeat first-person shooter Shadow Warrior. Battle alone or partner up in four-player co-op to experience the frenzied swordplay and explosive shootouts in the procedurally generated world of Shadow Warrior 2 — coming to PS4 next year!

Shadow Warrior 2 Coming to PS4 Next Year

Five years have passed since Lo Wang shattered the alliance between his deceitful former boss and the ancient gods of the shadow realm. Despite noble intentions, Lo Wang’s efforts to annihilate the darkness corrupted the world, creating a strange and savage new order where humans and demons live side by side.

The once feared warrior now lives in the shifting wildlands outside the reach of his enemies and the neon glow of Zilla’s cybernetic metropolis, scratching out a meager existence as a hired sword for the local Yakuza clans. When a simple mission goes wrong, Lo Wang is drawn into a volatile conflict between a brilliant young scientist, a controversial cult leader, and a terrifying new drug known as Shade. The sharp-tongued hero must once again wield lethal blades, staggering firepower, and archaic magic to purge the world of evil.

Additionally, PlayStation fans can grab the original Shadow Warrior on PSN at a sweet ninja discount from now through E3 to get familiar with the series’ exquisite katana-based combat and chaotic gunfights.

Shadow Warrior 2 will be available to demo via appointment only at E3 2015 with the first look at gameplay debuting live on Twitch.TV Monday, June 15th at 12:30 PM Pacific.

Shadow Warrior 2 is set to launch on PS4 in 2016, or whenever Lo Wang damn well pleases.

    Hi porty!

  • So excited, I loved Shadow Warrior 2013!

  • So far away

  • I wanna see some actual gameplay.

  • Vinicius2468BR

    The game looks good.

  • I’d be more excited if you’d patch the bug where it crashes every time you launch the first game while connected to PSN. It happens to a ton of people (me included) and pretty much stopped me from playing.

    I know you can disconnect from the PSN to be able to play it, but that shouldn’t be a requirement to play any final product…

  • Kinda far off but this is good news. Makes me want to go back and play the rest of Shadow Warrior. Love the dismemberment and unique sword controls this game offers. It would be nice if we could use the playstation camera with the move for a game like this.

  • WANT MORE WANG

  • Nice trailer…I didn’t played the 1st one yet but I gotta do it ASAP,heard only good things about it.
    Some gameplay next please.

  • XXKid-MightyXX

    omg it looks so cool but i have a question uh….. twitch.tv/twitch??

  • If you guys are gonna make a sequel to the 2013 Shadow Warrior reboot. How about release the original Shadow Warrior on the Playstation Store, like you did with Duke Nukem 3D.

  • The game looks great!

  • BlueBl1zzard

    I remember this was on sale for around $5 before, so I watched the trailer for it, liked what I saw, and bought it. I have yet to play it though, but now I know what I’m doing this weekend!

  • Certainly, it is a ways off. However, I loved the reboot that released for PS4. The game was not revolutionary in gameplay, story or graphics; it was so fun to play though. I was also engrossed with the story enough to actually pay attention to it too. There were a few loose strands in the story that will hopefully return. A couple characters that weren’t so dead and not happy with Lo Wang. definitely picking this up day one. With 4 player co-op I’ll have to make sure at least a few friends get it as well.

  • @12 Blue Blizzard; you have to play it. You own it, you need to take it for a spin. If you like it; then I know who’s door I’m knocking on first; to get the sequel with me.

  • Looks awesome, but then again most pre-renedered CGI will look awesome.
    Show us some real-time graphics!

  • NotCarolKaye

    I want a co-op mode where Lo Wang can team up with his partner Dong Chao.

    My best friend’s ex-wife makes $75/hr on the laptop. She has been unemployed for eight months but last month her income with big fat bonus was over $15000 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site…. WWW.­E­A­R­N­M­O­R­E­9­.­­C­O­M

    • Your best friend’s ex-wife is a slut!

      PS: Stop spamming…

    • Look, Sony doesn’t read their own comment sections. Otherwise this comment wouldn’t exist!

    DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! Why? There is a bug in Shadow Warrior where the game CRASHES if you are online and have more than 100 or so friends on your friends list. Only solution is to disconnect from PSN completely the whole time you play, and the lazy devs REFUSE TO FIX IT. Dozens of people at least reported it, and yet I got an e-mail from them that too few people are affected for them to care! Ridiculous. Do not support this developer or Devolve Digital because they do NOT stand by their products!

    • Ugh, that is super frustrating. I have the problem too and it really kills my interest in the game. It makes it feel sloppy beyond belief.

      I know that it is expensive to patch stuff (10k usually iirc), but it is still a BS excuse to say that not enough people have the problem to warrant a patch. Just a brief internet search shows a ton of people have this issue.

  • PauloMusicMan

    Awesome! I am still in the the chapter 4, but this game is so awesome! Gameplay is very smooth and so fun! I’ll finish some games and head back to Shadow Warrior world! That news are so welcome! \o/

    Pull my finger! HAHA

  • I thought I recognized the name Shadow Warrior… it being first person explains why it didn’t bring more than just a faint recognition to mind…

  • livingwithoutyou

    As soon as he said he is bringing friends I immedatly knew I would be purchasing this day one to play coop

  • HAHA_OWNED_DUDE

    Good game. Still haven’t beaten it on PS4. But It plays smooth and has some of the most gorgeous visuals I’ve seen. (Maybe for it’s setting in Japan?)
    Can’t wait for this!

  • Another generic CG trailer with no gameplay…….

  • AlyssaMiller8

    My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do…
