There’s a new Shadow Warrior 2 patch out for those enmeshed within the cult of Wang, taking the game to version 188.8.131.52. Among other things, it adds chat to multiplayer (text, I presume, though it doesn’t clarify), makes a couple of Engine related fixes, and adds more options to Photo Mode.
In addition, it tweaks a certain boss battle in Shadow Warrior 2 (minor spoilers in the changelog regarding that if you haven’t beaten the game yet). There are also multiplayer and gameplay fixes galore, all of which can be read in the patch notes below.
Here’s what you can find in version 184.108.40.206.
