Shadowrun Hong Kong Kickstarter Now Live
Return to this cyberpunk series for a third time this summer.
01.14.15 - 5:10 PM

With our repeated coverage, it shouldn't be a surprise that Shadowrun Hong Kong now has a Kickstarter campaign. With its launch we finally have some answers to what Shadowrun Hong Kong will actually be.

Shadowrun Hong Kong will be an all new, standalone cyberpunk tactical RPG set in Shadowrun's magically Awakened Hong Kong of 2056 where players will find themselves exploring the underworld of triads, tongs, wild magic, and bleeding edge cybertech with a crew of flawed, dangerous runners each with their own backstory and special abilities.

Unlike with the previous crowdfunding done by Harebrained Schemes, this funding is to add additional content to the final game, such as, additional runners for your team, bonus side missions, expanded magic and revamped art. At the time of writing this, the campaign has already reached its goal and in addition funded three additional goals.

"We've already begun development of the Hong Kong game," said Mitch Gitelman, co-founder of Harebrained Schemes and Executive Producer of Shadowrun. "We're self-funding the first 12 hours of gameplay at the quality level of Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut. But we have plenty of ideas for features and runs that didn't fit into our budget. We love Kickstarter and we think there's no better co-funding partner than our fans to help us take our game to the next level."

Be sure to check out the Kickstarter before it ends on February 17th at 10 am PST. Shadowrun Hong Kong will be developed for Windows, Mac, and Linux and is planned to be released mid-2015, at a price similar to the previous Shadowrun releases.
