shadowrun hong kong returns

With over 1,200,000 million dollars raised on Kickstarter for the third entry in Harebrained Scheme’s resurrection of the Shadowrun franchise, Shadowrun: Honk Kong finally receives a release date. According to the latest Kickstarter update, Shadowrun: Hong Kong will arrive on Steam, Good Old Games (GoG) and the Humble store on August 20th.

Despite a positive reception for Shadowrun Returns there were some issues with the first entry into the series. It had a short campaign, unimaginative story, disappointment with the amount of character customization as well as technical problems. These issues which were addressed with the sequel, Shadowrun: Dragonfall, which felt much more immersive and technically sound than its predecessor.

Set the neon-drenched urban labyrinth of a cyber-punk Hong Kong, with a huge show of support from backers and riding on the momentum of the success of the past two games, the chances are good that Shadowrun: Hong Kong will emerge as the pinnacle of the series.
