Background

Shadowrun is an intense FPS experience that rewards cleverness and split-second improvisation through a unique combination of modern weapons, ancient magic and advanced technology.

The combination of ancient magic, high technology and deadly weapons opens up new tactical possibilities for the player. Find yourself behind enemy lines, separated from your team? Teleport up through the ceiling to the roof then glide over to join your teammates. Or maybe use enhanced vision to find your enemies on the other side of a wall, turn the corner, toss a couple grenades, then once they notice you turn into smoke and walk off invulnerable to their weapons. Or just summon a minion to attack them up close while you stand back with a sniper rifle.

And, using LIVE Anywhere, Shadowrun is the first game ever to allow PC and 360 users play together. Be it keyboard and mouse or 360 controller, Shadowrun proves that it isn't the buttons that matter, it's the brains behind them.

Features

  • Rich legacy: After a 5,000 year absence magic has returned to the world of 2021, and global corporate might battles a relentless ancient order to harness this reawakened power. Be a part of the RNA global megacorp and bring order (and profit) into a world of chaos, or join the Lineage to keep magic wild and free at all costs. Choose a side and wage war for the future of magic in the new world of Shadowrun.
  • Magic and weapons: Dive into a universe where ancient magic co-exists with deadly weaponry, and experience a revolution in multiplayer FPS gaming. Purchase advanced technology and magic each round in an extraordinary arms race to improve your abilities and open up new tactics for your team. Use your cybernetic eye to spot your enemy through walls, teleport behind your opponents in the blink of an eye, trigger a hologram as a distraction then cut them down with a burst from your rifle to clear the room before they even know you're there.
  • Cross-platform multiplayer: For the first time ever, Xbox 360 and Windows gamers can compete as a team or as foes. Experience a quantum leap in interactivity as console and Vista PC gamers battle for supremacy online via Windows Vista and Xbox Live®. As you battle endlessly for the right to be crowned the last man standing, you'll also struggle to answer the age-old of question of which is the more efficient killer: Windows PC or Xbox 360? Through the unprecedented cross-platform functionality, up to 16 gamers using both Windows PC and the Xbox 360 console will participate together in the ultimate multiplayer frag-fest.
  • Classic races reinterpreted: Experience the thrill of combat as magic reawakens creatures of legend. Humans are joined by elves, dwarves, and trolls in a battle for supremacy among soaring corporate towers and an ancient ziggurat of power. Strike a balance on your team with races possessing unique abilities complementing your weapons and tactics.
  • Ultimate battlefield: Fight against or alongside A.I. teammates or join up with friends against all comers via System Link, Splitscreen, LAN, or Xbox Live. Fill out your team with incredible A.I. characters that respond to each tactical situation and provide an unparalleled team experience. Train offline with the robust A.I., or play through a host of mini-games cooperatively online with your friends as you master the magic and technology of Shadowrun.
