Shadow Warrior 3 was revealed in 2020 and was originally planned to release this year. The Steam page for the upcoming game shares the following on what it’s about:
“Armed with a punishing mix of blades and bullets, Lo Wang must traverse uncharted parts of the world to track down the dark beast and push the apocalypse back yet again. All it will take is the mask of a dead god, a dragon’s egg, a touch of magic, and enough firepower to hold off the impending cataclysm.”
Shortly after announcing the title, Devolver shared a 17-minute playthrough of Shadow Warrior 3 that followed Lo Wang through a mission called “Way To Motoko”.
Within the playthrough, fans got a look at several new weapons and items, including a new grappling hook that can be used to dash around the environment.
