Shadowrun Infuses Hong Kong with its Magic
Stylish tactical RPG Shadowrun has enjoyed quite a bit of success with its recent PC reboot, barring 2007's game of the same name. Kickstarted to the tune of 1.8 million USD, our own review team found it worth your while, if at least a little lacking. Shadowrun: Dragonfall was released last year, again to some well-respected critical acclaim, with Harebrained Schemes looking to fund yet another game in the Shadowrun series sometime in January, as we reported.
Now, with a listing on Steam and a press release, we know a bit more about what's going to be coming in Shadowrun: Hong Kong, to be released sometime this summer. Some of the stretch goal rewards being included are:
- Enhanced sound and dynamic combat music
- Rebuilt inventory UI and use of items in-game
- New “Cyberware” skill tree and new Cyberweapons that are implanted in characters' arms
- The ability to enter turn-based combat at any point
- Updated Shadowrun Editor
And more. If you enjoyed the previous two entries in the Shadowrun series, you have the option to pre-order Hong Kong now, and get the deluxe edition 33% off at 19.99 USD, though the standard edition is still full price, also at 19.99 USD. This weekend also brings about sales for the previous games in the Shadowrun series as well, with Shadowrun Returns available for 2.99 USD, and Shadowrun: Dragonfall up for grabs at 4.49 USD.
