The Sixth World beckons again.
Harebrained Schemes has announced a release date for Shadowrun: Hong Kong, their third standalone title in the role-playing series. The game will release on Steam, GoG, and The Humble Store on August 20.
Set in the near-future, Shadowrun presents a cyberpunk world dominated by megacorporations, thrown into upheaval by the return of magic.
The product of a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year, Shadowrun: Hong Kong will feature an assortment of mechanics improvements along with its new setting. New cyberware and magical equipment will be found and there is a redesigned Matrix to explore. And, as with previous installments, the level editor will return to allow players to create their own adventures in the shadows.
The game will be available at 10 am (Pacific Time) on launch day, though pre-orders are currently being accepted on Steam with an offer for the deluxe version of Shadowrun: Hong Kong. Until launch day, the deluxe edition (which adds a PDF art book and an MP3 soundtrack) can be purchased for the list price of the standard game, $19.99.
