If you're craving more role-playing goodness from Harebrained Schemes's Silver Award-winning game Shadowrun Returns
, you can expect to be sated in early 2014.
Harebrained Schemes confirmed a new expansion for Shadowrun Returns
today on Kickstarter. Its name? "Shadowrun: Dragonfall
In this forthcoming expansion pack, there'll be a new "full-length" campaign set in the Free City of Berlin.
"Operating out of an offbeat central hub neighborhood, you'll choose which missions to accept and how you’ll approach them while navigating the dark underbelly of 'the Flux'."
"The Flux" is a reference to Berlin's colloquial "Flux State" name. It's a 'stable anarchy' consisting of mega-corps, political factions, and savvy power players. Apparently.
Alongside the new explorable location, there'll be a fresh cast of unique characters to get to know. Forget those old ones, then. They're history.
You'll also be able to get your hands on a new sniper rifle, grenade launcher, taser, and new cyberware. Furthermore, you'll encounter new creatures like gargoyles and fire drakes.
In an extra nod to the game's origins, a new soundtrack will be supplied by Sam Powell, the composer of the original Shadowrun
on Sega Mega Drive.
Lastly, you'll be able to save anywhere in Dragonfall
, a feature that will also be added to Shadowrun Returns
's Dead Man's Switch campaign.
We're told that Shadowrun: Dragonfall
will be available on PC, Mac, and Linux in January. The iPad and Android version will be available shortly afterwards.
