We know you guys like your free games – hey, who doesn't? – so we've found yet another one that you should add to your Steam collection. Like, as soon as possible.

Devolver Digital has announced that the original Shadow Warrior, a reboot for the classic first-person shooter that came out in 2013, is available for free right now on Steam. But you'd best act fast, as the game is only free through August 23rd at 10 AM PDT – tomorrow.

Per the game's official description on the Steam page, "Shadow Warrior is a bold reimagining of the classic 3D Realms' shooter from independent developer Flying Wild Hog (Hard Reset) starring the legendary and quick-witted warrior Lo Wang. Combine the brute force of overwhelming firepower with the elegant precision of a katana to annihilate the merciless armies of the shadow realm in an exhilarating and visually stunning transformation of the classic first-person shooter."

The game has the following features:

Shadow Warrior Reborn – A bold new vision of Shadow Warrior elegantly blends classic first-person shooter gameplay with thrilling action, inventive combat, and a contemporary retelling of the hilarious legend of Lo Wang.

Elegant Swordplay – Unsheathe your legendary katana to slice enemies apart with precisely targeted swings or unleash fluid combos and special attacks to cut down hordes of enemies with one swift pass through the enraged hordes.

Upgradeable Arsenal – Utilize every gun in your formidable armory – from stylish revolvers and quad barrel shotguns to explosive-tipped crossbow bolts and laser-guided rocket launchers. Each weapon offers several unique upgrades to increase power, speed, and add devastating alternative firing options.

Mystical Powers – Call upon mystical powers to protect yourself and paralyze your enemies or use their own severed heads and still-beating hearts to bring them to their knees.

Again, it's only free for a limited time, and runs pretty nicely on the PC format, so, yeah, it wouldn't hurt for you to get your Wang on. And, for that matter, make sure you snag Shadow Warrior 2 as well, as it's on sale for a limited time, marked down to the very reasonable $19.99! That's more Wang than you can handle! (Okay, we're done with Wang jokes. Really.)
