So... Shadow Warrior 2 is a first-person ARPG

Postby jacobvandy » Wed Jun 29, 2016 6:28 pm

I heard good things about the Shadow Warrior reboot, though I haven't gotten around to playing it yet, myself. However that was basically a straightforward old-school FPS, and they're putting a whole new spin on it with the upcoming sequel:



RPS called it "first-person Diablo," and from their description that seems pretty apt. It's not a sequence of linear levels, it's a pseudo-randomly generated open world with a central hub populated by quest-givers and crafting/vending opportunities. Up to 4 players can run around blasting and chopping up groups of enemies, admiring their floating damage numbers and collecting loot, all colored red by the even more sophisticated dynamic gore and dismemberment system.

Suddenly this game is at the top of my most-wanted list!
