Take a fresh look at the beautiful chaos of Shadow Warrior 2.

Shadow Warrior 2 was one of the games Devolver brought to gamescom 2016 so attendees and the press can have some hands-on time. The shooter/action game hybrid has always looked pretty solid, and the new footage coming out of the show only help prove that.

In the video above, IGN plays through the gamescom demo, which includes a new location and a couple of new weapons and enemies.

We get to see the chainsaw in action, and a few of the katana abilities. The character also appears to have a new dodge ability which I think is new, allowing him to get into and out of fights very quickly. Then he gets transported to a new place through a portal, and things get even more interesting.

Shadow Warrior 2 was recently given an October release window, though that’s only on PC. We’re not sure if PS4 and Xbox One players will follow shortly after or they’ll be waiting a bit longer.
