Shadow Warrior took the FPS genre by storm in 1997 as one of the greatest and most innovative shooters of its time. Extremely violent, gore and destructible environments and much more – that’s what the game delivers in all its pixelated glory as you play with Lo Wang, the Shadow Warrior.

Just thinking back on the game makes me want to replay it, and now, it is completely free for every PC gamer to enjoy. You can pick it up on GOG (which includes all the add-ons and expansions) or on Steam for the low price of…nothing! It is free, so there is absolutely no reason not to try it out if you haven’t already played it to death 20 years ago.

In Shadow Warrior, you will wield some of the most outlandishly destructive weapons, like a 4-barrel shotgun, a razor-sharp katana and much, much more.

The game’s official description reads:

“Strap on your combat sandals...Lo Wang is coming to the Land of the Rising Sun to turn out the lights. Experience total blood immersion. If you can't touch, kill or drive something...then blow it away! Whether you're wielding shurikens, an Uzi, or a freshly plundered Guardian've got your work cut out for you. Enter the world's most interactive 3D environment...and cut yourself some sushi!” – Source

Shadow Warrior was ahead of its time in more ways than one. The game was a bit controversial when it was first released due to its excessive violence and a few other things. Keep in mind that Shadow Warrior Classic is exactly that, a classic, so don’t expect FPS mechanics modern games have. If you want something a little bit more modern graphics wise, there is also a Shadow Warrior Classic Redux on Steam which sells for R109.

Did you play Shadow Warrior when it first released and will you pick it up from Steam or GOG now that it is completely free? Let us know in the comment section.

Check out the Shadow Warrior Classic Redux trailer below (the free one is just a lot more pixelated and no trailer is available).
