Ahead of the Shadow Warrior
reinvention, publisher Devolver Digital is giving away the original 1997 shooter for free on Steam
. The controversial 3D Realms game, which used the same engine as Duke Nukem 3D
, was originally going for free for a "limited time." However, according to the official Shadow Warrior Twitter account it's staying free-to-play "forever."
Devolver Digital and Flying Wild Hog's Shadow Warrior
comeback is due on PC this fall, and on next-gen consoles (as yet unspecified) next year. We recently caught up
with lead writer Jan Bartkowicz to see how the modern Shadow Warrior
will compare to the original.
