Boston 2076: A dragon emerges from a hidden underground lab, laying waste to the city and spreading a strange disease, which turns citizens into raging killers. The government and corporate forces lock down the city, abandoning its inhabitants. You and your team find themselves inside fighting off the infected, while trying to unveil the sinister machinations behind this. You will need to make every move count, enlist the aid of fellow runners, and harness the powerful forces of technology and magic in order to survive an event that is going to shake the world of Shadowrun to its core.
Set in the dystopian near future of our world, where magic has awakened and blends with technology, creatures of myth and legend have returned. Elves, Dwarves, Orks and Trolls walk among the neon-lit streets, while the matrix connects everyone and everything as the corporate towers cast their long shadows across the globe. You are a Shadowrunner - a secret operative on the edge of society, hired for the jobs no one wants to be connected with. A cyberpunk rebel surviving by skill and instinct in the shadows of the corporate towers!
Welcome to the dark side of the future, chummer. It’s going to be a hell of a ride.
- Run and Gun! Gripping and deadly tactical turn-based combat in true Shadowrun style: Choose from a wide array of skills groups, magic, technology and weapons to survive!
