Background

The year is 2031, and two forces are fighting over the ancient magic that has awakened in Santos, but one is trying to take control of this new power, while the other is trying to protect it. You are a Shadowrunner, working for the RNA Global, or the Lineage, if you are a RNA member, you are trying to stop the Lineage from capturing the Ancient Magic Artifact, and if your a Lineage, your trying to capture the Artifact. The player is able to choose between four races: Human, Elf, Troll, and Dwarf; each race with unique abilities. Shadowrun combines modern weaponry with magical spells, such as Ressurect. Shadowrun is mainly focused on online play, for there is no single player campaign. There are three modes for Shadowrun, Attrition, where players work as a team to eliminate the opposing team, Raid, where RNA trys to secure the Artifact while Lineage trys to steal it, and Extraction, where both teams try to steal the Artifact. Shadowrun is all teamwork, for if you die, the only way of coming back to life is if an ally Ressurects you.
