It's now going to be known as Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown, a title chosen by the game's community andbackers.
Shadowrun Online developer Cliffhanger Productions haswith publisher Nordic Games to distribute the cyberpunk MMO.
The team-based tactical RPG is currently available through Steam Early Access, but when it's fully released later this year Nordic will handle the distribution.
Cliffhanger has revealed how the separate free-to-play and "campaign" (read as: premium) tiers would operate in the upcoming Shadowrun Online MMO.
There are 26 days left for Cliffhanger Production's bid to have their Kickstarter campaign for Shadowrun Online reach, and hopefully pass their goal of $500,000. They're already at 10%.
Just over 800 backers have pledged $56k so far. Shadowrun Online will be built with the Unity game engine and available on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and maybe even Linux.
Gamers who felt a deep angst over the Shadowrun MOBA that was released on Xbox 360 and PC a few years ago can celebrate the fact that the more traditional RPG Shadowrun Returns has finished its run with over $1.8M raised - which is 450% more than the $400K that developer Harebrained Schemes set as its goal.
