Cliffhanger Productions has revealed its upcoming Shadowrun Online will be available for Steam Early Access on March 31. A separate project from Harebrained Schemes’ single player focused Shadowrun Returns, Cliffhanger’s title will center on #multiplayer action with #coop #gameplay and player vs player faction wars set in a persistent world.
Become one of the infamous Shadowrunners in this multi-platform online version of one of the most successful pen and paper RPGs ever. Experience Shadowrun with your friends and plenty of enemies in a true cross-platform game and determine the future of the 6th world! Live your life on the edge, fight corporations and gangs and try to stay alive doing the most dangerous job of all: Shadowrunner.
Watch your back.
And never, ever, cut a deal with a dragon.
In Shadowrun Online, set in the 2070s of our world, dragons are running mega corporations, Amerindian braves battle it out with Ork street gangs over turf, elf hackers glide through the all-encompassing matrix and cybered up street samurai face toxic spirits in the rubble of ruined streets. And YOU will be shaping the future of this world!
Become a spell slinging mage, a cybered-up Street Sam or a matrix-running Hacker. Choose from hundreds of different types of magical and mundane gear or even change your body by adding implants and cyber-augmentations to improve your abilities.
Every character perceives the game world differently: While mages can see auras and look into the spirit plane, the right implant allows you to interact with the overlay of augmented reality permeating the modern world and hack anything from security cameras to combat drones. Knowledge really is power in Shadowrun Online.
And the best part is: In Shadowrun Online the collective actions of players will not only determine the fate of the online game world, but our unique player-driven plotline will enable you to determine the future of the whole Shadowrun Universe! Events players trigger will also cross over into the pen and paper storyline – so you can shape the future of the Shadowrun Universe!
At its core SRO is a full Unity3D online game, accessible through Windows, Mac, Android, iOS- and Linux and on Ouya, with high quality graphics and great effects. It is fully cross platform, meaning you can play it on your tablet in the train, then go home to sit down at your PC to continue with the same character. Highly individualizable characters and a turn based system, which balances fast-paced action with deep tactical combat, make it a true Shadowrun experience.
Welcome to the dark side of the future, pal. It’s going to be a hell of a ride.
