No Wang for you! Shadow Warrior delayed

1 min read


The remake of 3D Realms’ old shooter Shadow Warrior was set for release next month, but it’s now been delayed, meaning you’ll be waiting an extra month for your dose of Lo Wang.

The PS4 and Xbox One remake was scheduled for release on September 26 – a year after the Pc release – but has now been delayed to October. 

“In play testing we have been focusing in on the controller inputs and response,” said developer Flying Wild Hog. “We recognized that we needed more time to improve this as Shadow Warrior is an old school FPS and this demands perfection.

“Sadly this means a small delay in the release date, but Lo Wang needs to be at his best on these shiny new consoles.”

Those who buy it on PC get Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior for free, a crossover game that has you cleaning up the mangled and gibbed bodies of Lo Wang’s enemies.

“After the battle is over, someone has to cleanup the mess! Introducing Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior from RuneStorm, a unique crossover mini-game that combines the worlds of Viscera Cleanup Detail and Shadow Warrior. Step into the rubber soled shoes of the hapless janitor tasked with cleaning up Lo Wang’s mess after a devastating katana battle in the collector’s temple from Shadow Warrior. Mop up pools of blood, dispose of body parts, and get the collector’s gallery of antiques in tip top shape as quick as possible!”

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

      • Lardus-Resident Perve

    Boring and repetitive game, sadly does not live up to the original.

  • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora

    I bet that article headline makes Darryn all kinds of sad

      Finished and traded GTAV last year October. Grass isn’t always greener your side 😛

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        YES IT IS! While you were pretending to enjoy GTAV like an Austrian girl trapped in a basement I was making 3D Bar charts in Excel like a boss!

        And PC grass is higher resolution too! 😉

    Honestly the best FPS I have played in ages, bioshock Infinite can suck it =p. This game is how you reboot a series. It held true to the original game yet gave us a really great story and some of the best FPS game play in years.

    Ended up playing the entire game in one day the first time around, think i’ve played it about 4 times now. Plus the survival mode is insanely fun.

    Seriously anyone who has not had a chance to play this game on PC yet buy it when it comes on console, it is an absolutely awesome game!.
