Expect it closer to January.

Harebrained Schemes have announced that the promised Berlin campaign for the game has now been delayed in order to make it a bigger and better experience.
“Our original plan called for a modest-sized campaign that we could ship by the end of October,” says HBS. “However, after listening to your forum discussions and feedback, it became clear that you would like to see something bigger (and so would we). So, we’ve decided to spend more time on Berlin to create an experience closer to the size of Dead Man’s Switch.”
“A story of that scope will take longer, so we’re targeting January for its release.”
Harebrained are looking at the following things for the Berlin campaign, according to an update on their Kickstarter page:
- A more flexible main story arc – choose which runs to complete first, and which factions to complete objectives for
- More depth to the NPC runner characters
- New weapons, outfits, portraits, music, and enemies – including more magical creatures
- Improved Physical Adept gameplay – along with additions for some of the other existing archetypes
- A European city with a very different look, “vibe”, and cast of characters
- A story that highlights the compelling themes of the Shadowrun: Germany sourcebook
All the new content added for the Berlin campaign will be usable in the Shadowrun Editor, as well. Check out our review of Shadowrun Returns right here.
