Austin, TX – Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital have announced that the katana-heavy first-person shooter Shadow Warrior 2 is now available digitally on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For a limited time, eager ninjas can get Shadow Warrior 2 for a discounted price of $34.99 along with a free download of the Shadow Warrior for Xbox One or PlayStation 4 [shadowwarrior.com].
Shadow Warrior 2 makes its move to consoles after a successful debut on PC late last year, taking the trademark Shadow Warrior melee combat and outlandish style to the next. A stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s reboot, Shadow Warrior 2 ratchets up the action with online cooperative campaign mode, scores of unique weapon combinations, and a stunning mix of hand designed and procedurally generated worlds. Players assume the role of smart mouthed corporate shogun Lo Wang to wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world he inadvertently corrupted.
“Flying Wild Hog is excited and relieved to finally bring our biggest and best project to the PlayStation and Xbox communities,” said Michal Szustak, Studio Director at developer Flying Wild Hog. “Shadow Warrior 2 is a huge accomplishment for our little team and a new benchmark for the series so we hope that both our fans and new comers enjoy Lo Wang’s latest misadventures.”

Austin, TX – Independent developer Flying Wild Hog and free DLC connoisseurs Devolver Digital have released Shadow Warrior 2: The Way of the Wang, a free DLC pack for the hit first-person slasher on Steam and GOG. Shadow Warrior 2 will be 25 percent off through the weekend to celebrate the launch of the new free DLC.
Shadow Warrior 2’s The Way of the Wang DLC opens up a new area within the game’s hub town, presenting seven special trials for Lo Wang to unlock and overcome. Players will be able to earn new crafting abilities, weapon gem slots, and base weapon upgrade perks upon completing each new trial with the prized Fist of Gozu weapon waiting for those that complete the final Trial of the Ancient God mission. Shadow Warrior 2 fans will also find three new ‘Insane’ difficulty levels for the game and five new achievements waiting for them in the DLC pack.
“The fact is Shadow Warrior 2 was a hit for Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital and frankly we have more money than we can handle at the moment,” said Fork Parker, CFO at Devolver Digital. “Our team of lethal but fiscally responsible ninja accountants advised me to go ahead and giveaway The Way of the Wang DLC for free and write it off on our taxes. So there you go, you cheap bastards.”
Launched in October, Shadow Warrior 2 has been a critical and commercial success for the independent Polish developer Flying Wild Hog. In its first week alone, the sequel enjoyed a fourfold increase in sales over the 2013 Shadow Warrior reboot.
The sequel follows the further misadventures of former corporate shogun and anti-hero, Lo Wang, who after the events of the first game is surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world. The formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world he inadvertently corrupted.

Austin, TX - Independent developer Flying Wild Hog (Shadow Warrior,Hard Reset) and rogue game publisher Devolver Digital (The Talos Principle, Hotline Miami) have announced Shadow Warrior 2, a striking follow-up to the global best-selling first-person shooter Shadow Warrior for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Shadow Warrior 2 marks the triumphant return of Lo Wang and his trademark use of blades, bullets, and a sharp tongue to strike down the demonic hordes but this time hes not going at it alone.
The incredible reception of Shadow Warrior from both longtime fans and gamers new to the series was overwhelming, said Michal Szustak, Studio Director at Flying Wild Hog. Shadow Warrior 2 will expand on and improve every element that made the original so unique and strike a balance between classic FPS action and modern design.
Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hogs offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang. Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world. Battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in spectacular procedurally-generated landscapes to complete daring missions and collect powerful new weapons, armor, and arcane relics of legend.
While the game is busting with stunning visuals and exquisite combat, its the near constant barrage of Wang jokes that is going to move product, said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. The kids love thinly veiled dick jokes. Love em.
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 12:30PM Pacific [twitch.tv/twitch].
