To the disappointment of many, the PC version of 17-BIT’s weird and enjoyable RTS Skulls of the Shogun was tethered to Windows 8 upon release. If you wanted to play it on PC, you’d have to upgrade your OS. No one wanted to do that. Thankfully, the game’s finally breaking free.
Starting next month, SOTS will be available in a new “Bone-A-Fide Edition” on Steam and the Humble Store, and it’ll play on any PC, not just those with Windows 8.
The new version includes the entire original game as well as, according to the PR materials sent out with the announcement, “a challenging brand-new four-chapter episode that takes place after the original game’s ending.” Well, that’s a nice bonus for those who’ve waited this whole time to play.
