Shadow Warrior 2 is an upcoming sequel to the Flying Wild Hog’s 2013 first-person shooter. It takes place five years after the events in the first game, and once again puts the players into the shoes of wisecracking ninja Lo Wang. The sequel is less linear and some level elements are procedurally-generated. Shadow Warrior 2 also boasts over 70 different weapons which can be augmented and leveled up by killing enemies. Enemies can now be dismembered and have various body parts blown off thanks to the new procedural damage system.
Like its predecessor, the game has a single-player story mode, the main difference being that it is now possible to revisit previous missions. New to the game is a 4-player co-op which allows four people to enjoy the campaign together. Each player will experience the story as Lo Wang, and see other participants as anonymous mercenaries.
