After their successful Kickstarter project garnered $1,836,447 early last year, developer Jordan Weisman and the team at Hairbrained Schemes have finally revealed the launch date for their 2D tactical title Shadowrun Returns, now slated for release on July 25.
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.
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.
Currently the title will be launching first on Steam for PC
, with a standard edition for $17.99 and a deluxe edition for $31.49.
