We already got to enjoy Shadow Warrior and its great port and it seems the Shadow Warrior developers aren't done with Linux/SteamOS and also want to publish their new game on our beloved platform. How do I know this? The store page has Linux requirements for the game, though currently there isn't much there to look at, simply that you will need Ubuntu 12.04 or newer. The game will be out in 2016, so you have some time to pick up and play Shadow Warrior while waiting for the new one. The port was definitely worth recommending.

About This Game (from Steam)

Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang. Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world. Battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in spectacular procedurally-generated landscapes to complete daring missions and collect powerful new weapons, armor, and arcane relics of legend.

STORY

Five years have passed since Lo Wang shattered the alliance between his deceitful former boss and the ancient gods of the shadow realm. Despite noble intentions, Lo Wang’s efforts to annihilate the darkness corrupted the world, creating a strange and savage new order where humans and demons live side by side.

The once feared warrior now lives in the shifting wildlands outside the reach of his enemies and the neon glow of Zilla’s cybernetic metropolis, scratching out a meager existence as a hired sword for the local Yakuza clans. When a simple mission goes wrong, Lo Wang is drawn into a volatile conflict between a brilliant young scientist, a controversial cult leader, and a terrifying new drug known as Shade. The sharp-tongued hero must once again wield lethal blades, staggering firepower, and archaic magic to purge the world of evil.

FEATURES

Blades and Bullets: Lo Wang delivers his own brand full throttle brutality with an expanded array of over 70 lethal blades and explosive firearms to overcome the demonic opposition. Become a whirlwind of steel and blood with razor sharp katana, short swords, crescent blades, and hand claws or unleash a hellish symphony of ornate firearms to decimate your enemies.

Four Player Co-Op: Battle through the expansive campaign alone or team up as a four-player typhoon of destruction online in campaign co-op mode. Tackle challenging primary missions or thrilling side quests while maintaining your own ninja style with customizable armor, items, and valuable loot from your triumphs.

Procedural Environments: The breach between the human and demon realms created an interdimensional hernia resulting in constant shifts to the world of Shadow Warrior 2. Procedurally generated landscapes and paths bring new twists and turns to once familiar terrain and routine missions.

Brutal Damage System: Choose your weapon based on the situation at hand and then dismantle everything that stands in your path with an advanced gore system. Use precision blade strikes to separate limbs and heads or switch to heavy ordinance and blow a hole right through colossal beasts.

Custom Upgrade System: Upgrade weapons in your arsenal with up to three stones at once to improve performance or augment them with devastating elemental effects. Collect karma, amulets, and armor to enhance Lo Wang’s power and shift his death-dealing artistry into overdrive. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

**** yeah, I could go for more Wang. I need more Wang. Give me more Wang. I want Wang in me.

Alright, that's all the Wang jokes I got.

On a serious note, Shadow Warrior is the best FPS not called Metro <something> from this decade that I've played, so I'm very excited about this.

So, that is a sequel of original Shadow Warrior. Why the hack did they not name 2013 prequel differently then?

I don't the 2013 Shadow Warrior is a prequel, it's more of a reboot and this is a sequel to it.

Are you sure about that? Wang is waaay older in the original game.

Always nice to see more Lo-nux Wang. Yeah, I'm a riot.

I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to four-player coöperative Wang!

I couldn't agree more.

Excited, but as someone who never cared for the Borderlands/Dead Islands games I can't say the co-op aspect thrills me, hopefully the single player game won't suffer.
