Shadowrun Returns Launch Trailer Introduces World, Classes

Posted on July 19, 2013 AT 10:23am

Developer Harebrained Schemes has released the launch trailer for their successfully crowdfunded tactical RPG, Shadowrun Returns.

Set in 2054, Shadowrun Returns blurs the line between cyberpunk and fantasy by introducing magic and traditional fantasy races (Orcs, Elves, et cetera) into a sci-fi setting. Like any good cyberpunk story, Shadowrun‘s is a world ruled by the oppression of Mega-Corporation.

Players assume the role of a fully customizable character, choosing their gender, race, and class. Combat in Shadowrun is described as similar to XCOM, blending tactical and RPG elements.

Shadowrun Returns launches on PC, Mac, and Linux through Steam July 25.
