Cliffhanger Productions’ eagerly awaited online adaptation of the Shadowrun universe has finally received a release date but that’s not all. Shadowrun Online has been re-named and it’s now being called Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown. The name was decided on by both the developer and backers of the Kickstarter campaign with the intention of conveying a sense of solitary play.
Nordic Games’ Gennaro Giani elucidated on this further. “Especially for the boxed version, gamers need to be sure they can play the game alone at their convenience and not be forced into some online pattern or depend on any server activity for that matter. The new title also implies that Shadowrun Chronicles is here to stay.”
Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown will release on April 28th for PC, Mac and Linux. Steam Early Access will receive it on March 31st, allowing users to test drive it in advance. Are you looking forward to it? Let us know in the comments.
