I've got some really good news for everyone who likes cool Japanese open world games, Samurai & DRM free gaming because the brilliant Way of the Samurai 3 will finally be making its long-awaited debut on GOG. The game will be priced at just $19.99 for the Standard Edition, $24.99 for the Deluxe Edition (which includes the game and all DLC) and $5.99 for the Deluxe Edition Upgrade. Plus, if you buy the game at launch you'll benefit from a mighty a 50% launch discount off (40% for the deluxe edition)! This is a deal that you won't want to miss!
As it's been quite a while since we last talked about Way of the Samurai 3, here is a quick reminder about what makes this entry in the million-plus-selling franchise so much fun.
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!
With Way of the Samurai 4 already on GOG, I realise it may be difficult to choose between the two, although you could always get both :). But if that's not possible then why not check out this very handy article from Al, in which he compares the two games.
