Shadowrun Returns release date at the App Store finally out

On June 19, 2013

Developer Harebrained Schemer’s cyberpunk RPG Shadowrun Returns is set to go live on iOS and Android on July 25th. The game is a single player RPG that is both skill-based and rich in graphics, with action unfolding in a cyberpunk future in which magic has returned and creatures of myth have been reawakened.

It all started back in April 2012, when developer Jordan Weisman collected kickstarter donations of over $400,000 for his new cyberpunk RPG project Shadowrun Returns.

Shadowrun Returns’ predecessor ShadowRun, created nearly 25 years ago by Jordan Weisman, is a dynamic gaming world that brings together the high-fantasy creatures of The Lord of the Rings and Blade Runner’s dystopian cyberpunk future, the result being iconic characters, situations, and environments. Shadowrun Returns re-introduces this popular setting in electronic gaming through action unfolding on a rich backdrop of painterly 2D environments, and smooth animations enhanced by 3D characters.

You get to create and grow your own RPG character and give them a wide combination of abilities from a selection of career archetypes like Deckers (computer hackers), spirit-summoning Shamans, combat-focused Street Samurai, spell-slinging Mages, the monk-like Physical Adepts, and drone-piloting Riggers. This also includes metahuman-types like trolls, dwarves, elves, and orks.

The game’s original release date on iOS and Android was five months ago, which was then changed to sometime between May and June. Now you have reason to look forward to July 25.
