, marking the
official release of this tactical RPG reboot from Harebrained Studios. The game
is available as a standard edition and there is also a deluxe edition, which
includes a soundtrack and a digital anthology chronicling the series and the
creation of the new installment. Here's the elevator pitch on the
MAN MEETS MAGIC & MACHINE. The year is 2054. Magic has returned to
the world, awakening powerful creatures of myth and legend. Technology merges
with flesh and consciousness. Elves, trolls, orks and dwarves walk among us,
while ruthless corporations bleed the world dry. You are a shadowrunner - a
mercenary living on the fringes of society, in the shadows of massive corporate
arcologies, surviving day-by-day on skill and instinct alone. When the powerful
or the desperate need a job done, you get it done... by any means necessary.
In the urban sprawl of the Seattle metroplex, the search for a mysterious killer
sets you on a trail that leads from the darkest slums to the city’s most
powerful megacorps. You will need to tread carefully, enlist the aid of other
runners, and master powerful forces of technology and magic in order to emerge
from the shadows of Seattle unscathed.
The unique cyberpunk-meets-fantasy world of Shadowrun has gained a huge cult
following since its creation nearly 25 years ago. Now, creator Jordan Weisman
returns to the world of Shadowrun, modernizing this classic game setting as a
single player, turn-based tactical RPG.
