Shadow Warrior 3 was recently released worldwide on March 1, and it has only been a mild success. However, this doesn’t mean that the developer plans to abandon the title.

The developer, Flying Wild Hog, has released the first update for the game. Update 1.01 doesn’t bring any new content yet introduced bug fixes and optimizations. The patch also brought multiple fixes to French localization.

The game's performance has been improved and many audio issues are squashed. Crashing issues have been addressed, and the save data is now much more stable. Players should feel relieved that save data will no longer lead to corruption.

You can read the patch notes below.

Update 1.01 Patch Notes

  • Fixed issue with the raccoon not running away in sequence at Motoko Cave level after respawn - The Raccoon will now run faster than ever!
  • Fixed too late ending of Raft sequence at Avalanche level which often caused the death of player - We've seen a lot of players having issues with the raft, hopefully with this change done to it the raft will not cause any more headaches to the player base.
  • Fixed a bunch of audio issues
  • Fixed several crashes - A lot of the crashes reported have now been fixed in the new build, if you by any chance encounter crash after the update, please make sure to verify the game files
  • Improved save data stability - There should be no more corrupted save data, or at least the chance of such issue occurring has been put to a minimum.
  • Optimization across levels for a smoother experience
  • Various French localization fixes.

The complete patch notes are available on Steam. You can purchase the game for $49.99 from there only. A DRM-free version is also available on GOG.

Shadow Warrior 3 is available on PS4, PS5 Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
