Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall Summary
Harebrained Schemes has just revealed the launch date for the just-take-my-money Shadowrun: Hong Kong that successfully robbed us blind of over $1.2 million through itsback in February this year.
Well chummer, our runners will be on a flight to Hong Kong this August 20th through Steam, GOG.com and Humble. The studio is making a number of changes to the game, like the Matrix.
It's a major overhaul for the Matrix in Shadowrun: Hong Kong from Harebrained Schemes as pledges have achieved $700k. Now the team will revise the "look, feel, and gameplay" of the Matrix.
They want it to feel more like you're "traveling in the digital world," as well as add new Intrusion Countermeasures. This isn't the last of the stretch goals because one just opened up at $1 million.
Harebrained Schemes' Kickstarter campaign for Shadowrun: Hong Kong continues its pledge drive with just under a month still left to burn, and today they've pushed through $550k for Enhanced Magic.
This means the team will be expanding the current magic system in Shadowrun to spice up the options for magic-users, like Shrine Spirits for Shamans, and Foci - enchanted weaponry for others.
The pledges just keep rolling in for Harebrained Schemes' Shadowrun: Hong Kong, with funding now past 400% their needed goal. It's floating around $427k right now, unlocking a new runner.
Gaichu is now able to join our party of Shadowrunners in Hong Kong; a former Red Samurai. The stretch goals are being vanquished one-by-one, and there's still over a month left on the clock!
Harebrained Schemes has set up a newfor Shadowrun: Hong Kong, an all new, full length standalone title that will build upon the foundations of the previous games to tell a new story, with new characters and a new location.
I'm trying to be very professional about this, but I love Shadowrun, and I loved Harebrained's two previous Shadowrun RPGs, so I'm pretty excited to see the developer return for a third entry.
