The follow-up to 2014’s bloody first-person actioner, Shadow Warrior 2 once again follows the exploits of Lo Wang, who is now working as a mercenary. Unlike its predecessor however, the sequel allows gamers to not only tackle the action solo, but also take part in four-player co-op.

In addition to co-op, Shadow Warrior 2 also introduces a more open level design, eschewing the linear trappings of the original game. Gamers are encouraged to explore now thanks to the ability to climb and double-jump, and can unlock more than 70 different weapons spanning firearms and blades.
