Shadowrun: Hong Kong releases for PC, Mac, Linux

The latest installment of the Shadowrun franchise brings the dark and gritty, magic-meets-tech world to life in a new city - Hong Kong.

After a hugely-successful Kickstarter campaign, Harebrained Schemes has finally released their latest installment in the Shadowrun series - Shadowrun: Hong Kong.

With a new crew, this latest PC title once again brings to life the seedy, cyber-fantasy future that the original tabletop RPG has always been known for: this time in the magically-awakened city of Hong Kong in the year 2056. 

Like Shadowrun Returns and Shadowrun: Dragonfall before it, Shadowrun: Hong Kong promises a rich and diverse narrative that has the feel of a gritty cyberpunk novel and beautiful, highly immersive cityscapes.

Also like in previous games, you command a crew with a diverse array of skills, strengths and weaknesses. You can guide their stories by following up on their personal challenges, or leave them be in favor of pursuing the game's main story goals.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong brings another thrilling cyber-fantasy future to life on your PC.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong brings new elements to the series as well with expanded magic and cyberware, a completely revamped Matrix, and an upgraded release of the Shadowrun editor.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong is currently $19.99 on Steam, GOG, and Humble. If you're willing to shell out an extra $9.99, you can get the deluxe edition, which offers the game's soundtrack and a PDF of the game's artbook.
