Shadow Warrior 3 is an upcoming first-person action game that focuses on preventing the apocalypse. At the end of the last game, Shadow Warrior 2, Lo Wang inadvertently releases a dragon. Now it's up to him to stop this out-of-control beast from destroying everything in sight.
Shadow Warrior 3 launches on March 1, 2022, and we haven't really seen a lot of gameplay that truly captures the essence of what to expect from the title. Luckily, that changed today. Developer Flying Wild Hog posted an almost 10-minute video showcasing the dragon's sanctuary.
The video features tense miniboss battles, jumping puzzles, and some bombastic action sequences involving swords. The dragon's lair is also quite colorful and features vibrant shades of blue and pink. However, the gameplay is where Shadow Warrior 3 shines. It seems much tighter, more responsive, and more thrilling than Shadow Warrior and Shadow Warrior 2.
Shadow Warrior 3 has only been announced for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. According to the Xbox Store, the title is also Optimized for Xbox Series X|S, but it's unclear what that entails at this time. Hopefully, we'll see a higher resolution or frame rate on Microsoft's new console. You can preorder it for $39.99 through Microsoft or the platform of your choice.
