Humble Bundle free game “Shadowrun Returns Deluxe”

Humble Bundle‘s newest limited time giveaway is Harebrained Schemes‘ cyberpunk-fantasy tactical RPG Shadowrun Returns in its Deluxe Edition.

25 years is a long time, especially for boardgames, but it’s also an indication for quality, which is certainly true for the Shadowrun series. While I haven’t played any version of it in digital or old-school form, cyberpunk as a setting has always appealed to me. So it’s nice to see the 2013 game that was followed by many other titles on offer on Humble Bundle, including both the Anthology and soundtrack DLCs as well.

Mixing a cyberpunk world with fantasy elements is an intriguing concept, while the tactical RPG mechanics fit quite nicely, too. One plays as the shadowrunners who are mercenaries trying to survive each day in 2054 when mechanical and magical beings are commonplace as well as big corporations fighting each other. With a mysterious killer in the Seattle metropolis on the loose, there’s enough to worry about and an excuse to level up one’s characters and get involved in turn-based combat. Looking and sounding great, this is a title that shouldn’t be missed by anyone interested in the genre or boardgame.

Shadowrun Returns Deluxe is now available for free on the Humble store, but only until tomorrow, June 23, 2018, at 10 a.m. So be quick while the offer and Steam codes last.
