Elves, Dwarves, Orks and Trolls walk 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 – an expendable asset on the edge of society, hired for the jobs no one wants to be connected with. Welcome to the dark side of the future, chummer. It’s going to be a hell of a ride.

Shadowrun Chronicles is XCOM with magic
— HardcoreGamer
A great foundation for the probably best Shadowrun game in a long time
The addition of co-operative gameplay could be exactly the kind of addition that the Shadowrun franchise needs.
After spending many, many years playing the pen-and-paper version of the game, I’ve found that even in Early Access, Cliffhanger Productions’ multiplayer-enabled, tactics-focused take on the tech fantasy universe is the purest Shadowrun videogame experience on offer today.
