While doing a bit of competitive research during the production of Serious Sam 3: BFE we checked out an impressive classic FPS called Hard Reset from a new independent developer Flying Wild Hog out of Poland.
Shadow Warrior is bold reimagining of 3D Realms’ cult classic shooter that blends the viciously over-the-top gunplay of the original with the elegant precision of the powerful katana.
The reluctant hero Lo Wang certainly comes stacked with heavy-hitting guns to pummel the demon hordes back into the shadow realm but the real fun is reserved for his classic katana. Melee weapons had long been relegated to backup weapons in first-person shooters, used only when all other ammunition was depleted. Flying Wild Hog flipped that on it’s head with Shadow Warrior by making the katana the most devastating weapon in the game when leveled up and skillfully used in combat. Shadow Warrior will slice its way onto PlayStation 4 later this year.
