Shadowrun Returns brings the cyberpunk RPG franchise to Android finally

We’ve been covering two Shadowrun games that have been successfully funded through Kickstarter, both with plans to bring their games to Android. One is an online MMORPG style game called Shadowrun Online while the other game had an insanely successful Kickstarter campaign, called Shadowrun Returns.

The latter is the new Shadowrun game that is now out for Android gamers to go grab and sink as much time as they possibly can into it. Developed by Harebrained Schemes, Shadowrun Returns isn’t just a rehashing of the original game that spawned a tablet top RPG and other spin-offs. Instead this is a new addition to the franchise with turn-based tactical gameplay meshed into the cyberpunk RPG world of Shadowrun.

Shadowrun Returns Features:

– The complete Shadowrun Returns campaign (12+ hours of gameplay!) optimized for touchscreen input
– Explore a grim cyberpunk future where magic and technology rule the streets
– Make every action count in gripping, turn-based tactical combat
– Create and customize your character from one of six unique archetypes
– Over 350 different weapons, spells and abilities: sling fireballs, kneecap enemies with your shotgun, or roundhouse kick them in the face!

Reading the features list of the game we were actually happy to see that you can kneecap someone with a shotgun, mind you that would be pretty messy. Visually the game has an isometric viewpoint with some pretty solid 3D visuals to enjoy.

While the announced content creation tools haven’t been released yet, which will allow people to create campaigns and other goodies in the game for others to play, we do expect those to arrive soon. In the meantime, we are just happy it hasn’t been delayed again. You can pick up Shadowrun Returns off of Google Play for $9.99 for most tablets and some newer phones.

We will have a full review coming your way very soon.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
