Shadowrunners world-wide will be delighted to hear that those fine fellows at Harebrained Schemes are polishing up the first exciting piece of official DLC Shadowrun: Dragonfall. Launching on Windows, Mac OS and Linux Dragonfall will be free for people who backed the Kickstarter, everyone else can pick it up for the princely sum of $14.99. If you missed out on the full game you can grab it alongside the DLC for just $24.99.
The new game is set in Berlin and and the PR blurb describes it thusly:
The Flux-State: a stable anarchy enforced by an ever-shifting coalition of megacorps, political factions, and savvy power players. A place where almost anything goes and the right connections can be the difference between success and starvation. Dangerous jobs abound and there’s no better place to earn a quick payday – provided you live long enough to spend it. For you and your team of battle-scarred runners, it’s just another day in the Free City of Berlin.
But a new threat is rising, one that could mean untold chaos and devastation. The only clue: whispers of the DRAGONFALL, a long-forgotten event from the earliest days of the Awakened world. As you find yourself drawn into a maze of veiled dangers and strange machinations, you will come face-to-face with a grim spectre of the past… and alter the course of Berlin’s future.
But what do you get for your hard earned cash I hear you think (Yes I can do that, it’s a real talent) Well lets take a look:
- A whole new full-length campaign in a new city with new locations, characters and music.
- Save anywhere! You asked and they listened now you can save anywhere not just at the start of a new zone.
- Editor updates with new content, lighting and better scripting control.
With a plethora of fan-made DLC already available in the Steam Workshop Shadowrun Returns really is the game that keeps on giving and I for one can’t wait to take a tour around a dystopian Berlin.
