PATCH 1.05 IS OUT!

PATCH 1.05 IS OUT!
AND BOY OH BOY
IS IT BRINGING CHANGES!

 

Dearly beloved peeps!

We have some exciting news to share! 

The new Shadow Warrior 3 update includes a heavily requested feature, and that is a “New Game+” game mode! 

Start any level of the game with all of your weapons in the inventory. The weapon pickups are still present in pre-defines spots on locations just like in the regular campaign, but this time around they simply add ammunition to that weapon in the Inventory. 

You also get to keep all your upgrades and progress for challenges you haven not unlocked yet.

On top of that! There are new special challenges specifically made for New Game+ that are added under the “Challenges” tab.

Killing Bunnies in “New Game+” deals damage to the player but does not apply “The Curse”.

However, the player is permanently cursed and a special version of Oni-Hanma demons now appear on pre-defined arenas more often throughout the game and sometimes in larger numbers with one encounter.

Each of these new challenges consists of a description of the task that Player must perform, progress counter and the new reward called “Warrior Point”. Player obtains one Warrior Point for each Special Challenge. Claiming that point builds up the “Warrior Rank” with which you get to unlock new weapon skins, which you claim from the newly added “Rewards” section in the main menu. 

Obviously, this list wouldn’t be complete without a comprehensive patch note!

Here are all the changes and fixes that that come along with patch 1.05:
