Shadowrun Returns Berlin expansion dubbed 'Dragonfall'

0

Lots of new details on content released

The massively successful Kickstarter for Shadowrun Returns reached lofty numbers, achieving a stretch goal which would add a second setting and campaign to the game as DLC, with the backers selecting Berlin as the locale. Today, Harebrained Schemes dropped a boatload of information on this Berlin expansion, titling it, Shadowrun: Dragonfall.

Before I go any further, as a fan of the Shadowrun setting, that title gives me chills. You don't screw around with dragons. You just don't. It's just about the easiest way to guarantee a short and miserable life (or a very, very long and excruciating one, depending on the dragon you annoy).

Along with the campaign comes new cyberware, new guns and new environments, all of which will be available in the game's editor to make new adventures with. The editor is also getting new features, including a scripting system to manage things such as lighting and dialog to offer greater flexibility.

And, perhaps best of all, the expansion will feature a "save anywhere" system. It's one of the biggest issues with Shadowrun Returns, as some missions can be quite lengthy and having to retread progress due to an interruption could be annoying. This functionality will also be added to the original campaign.

Shadowrun: Dragonfall is planned to release in January 2014. I want it yesterday.
