Release history

The Wanton Destruction add-on for Shadow Warrior was already finished in 1998, but due to the bad sales of Shadow Warrior, WizardWorks, the publisher of this add-on, decided to cancel the title. Soon Sunstorm went out of business which lead many to believe the add-on was lost.

Later (in 2005) the former president of Sunstorm, Anthony Campiti, discovered a CD labeled "Add-on archive 1". Surprisingly it contained the thought to be lost add-on, Wanton Destruction . He quickly contacted 3D Realms (developer of original Shadow Warrior) about this, and a few days later Wanton Destruction was released as freeware by 3D Realms.
