Shadow Warrior 3_02

Flying Wild Hog continues to support Shadow Warrior 3 with its latest update adding New Game+. When starting a New Game+ playthrough, all weapons become unlocked (though you’ll still pick them up in the story, these exist to add ammo). All upgrades and challenge progress also carry over into the new playthrough.

New Game+ also adds special challenges that change the game in various ways. If you slay rabbits at any point, you’ll receive damage in addition to a permanent curse. Special Oni-Hanma demons will also appear more often throughout the game and in greater numbers. Upon completing a challenge, players receive a Warrior Point.

These go towards your Warrior Rank which can unlock new weapon skins from the Rewards section. For more details on other changes and bug fixes, check out the patch notes below. Shadow Warrior 3 is currently available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Check out our review here for more details.
