We all know that the Xbox Games With Gold scheme is more than happy to deliver four free games to willing Xbox gamers each and every month. With February on the horizon, we have been expecting Shadow Warrior to be stripped of its price tag from the 1st Feb – but here it is already embracing the free-ness!
Available to download for absolutely nothing from now until the end of February 2018, Shadow Warrior on Xbox One places you in the shoes of corporate shogun, Lo Wang, as he tried to hunt down and grab a blade of limitless power.
With a combination of guns, blades, magic and wit pushing along both the story and the fighting mechanics, this first person shooter should ensure that a ton of action, a load of combat and a smattering of humour is sent your way. And that’s not even mentioning the magical powers that Wang possesses. Yeah, there’s magic!
Should you have a valid Xbox Live Gold subscription and wish to grab yourself a freebie slightly ahead of time, then make your way to the Microsoft Store and hit up that download. It saves spending the usual £19.99 at the very least.
Shadow Warrior tells the offbeat tale of Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun Lo Wang as he is ordered to acquire a legendary blade of limitless power by his deceitful employer. Betrayed and left for dead, Lo Wang learns of the blade’s connection to ancient gods from another realm preparing to push our world to the brink of destruction. Now the reluctant hero must become legend through a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit to uncover the truth behind the demonic invasion and banish evil back into the darkness. Shadow Warrior Reborn – A bold new vision of Shadow Warrior elegantly blends classic first-person shooter gameplay with thrilling action, inventive combat, and a contemporary retelling of the hilarious legend of Lo Wang. Elegant Swordplay – Unsheathe your legendary katana to slice enemies apart with precisely targeted swings or unleash fluid combos and special attacks to cut down hordes of enemies with one swift pass through the enraged hordes. Upgradeable Arsenal – Utilize every gun in your formidable armory – from stylish revolvers and quad barrel shotguns to explosive-tipped crossbow bolts and laser-guided rocket launchers. Each weapon offers several unique upgrades to increase power, speed, and add devastating alternative firing options. Mystical Powers – Call upon mystical powers to protect yourself and paralyze your enemies or use their own severed heads and still-beating hearts to bring them to their knees.
