Shadow Warrior Classic free-to-play on Steam 'forever'

Shadow Warrior Classic free on Steam for limited time
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.
