Way of the Samurai 3 is coming to Steam!

Mon, 7th Mar 2016 | Posted by Ross

Hi everyone.

I hope you’re all excited about this announcement, as I certainly am! :)

I’m delighted to be able to tell you that we’ll be bringing the fantastic Japanese open world action game, Way of the Samurai 3 to Steam in the very near future. We’ve had loads of emails asking us to release this one on Steam. In fact, it’s been one of the most requested Steam releases in recent years.

Honour, sacrifice, betrayal… Your choices make you who you are. How will history remember you?

Jump into the sandals of a mysterious lone samurai during Japan’s turbulent Sengoku era, in one of the most atmospheric action RPGs ever created.

Explore the villages, body-strewn battlefields, bandit fortresses, immense castles and local town of Amana, in an open world bustling with a rich cast of colourful characters that you can help, ignore or victimise.

Choose your friends and enemies carefully in a game where every decision has far-reaching consequences, and where finishing the game is just the beginning of your journey…

  • The Butterfly Effect – More than 20 different endings. Your every action, no matter how subtle or ludicrous, could set in motion a huge variety of events, allowing for huge replayability. Explore new narrative paths, reveal new allies… and enemies!
  • Huge Customization - Craft your own unique weapons from over 200 different parts. Create the ultimate unbreakable weapon to suit your preferred fighting style. Forge lethal swords, spears, pole axes and more outlandish weaponry and discover hundreds of new abilities as you become a true master of each weapon!
  • Reward System and Samurai Rating – Your actions and conduct will reward you with Samurai Points and Titles, all of which unlock new game features, customisation options, outfits and accessories. Live as an honourable samurai, wallow in the low life of a bandit or strike your own path! Your choices lead to new endings, strange followers and other unexpected outcomes.
  • The Pen Can Be Mightier Than the Sword - Fight your enemies by force or take the diplomatic route, using subtle gestures like the unsheathing of your sword or kowtowing. Featuring an extensive dialogue tree, combo system and much, much more!

As I mentioned in last week’s blog, we’ve been hard at work on the PC port for quite a while now, and we’re not far away from release. We should be starting our closed beta shortly, and assuming everything goes as expected with that then we’ll be ready to announce a release date very soon after. Exciting!

Before I go, I’d just like to say thank you for all your patience while we’ve been teasing our announcement. It’s taken a lot longer than we’d hoped to be able to announce this one, but I’m sure you’ll all agree that it’s been well worth the wait! :)
