Preview - posted by Infinitron on Fri 7 August 2015, 23:19:18Tags: Harebrained Schemes; Shadowrun: Hong Kong
With Shadowrun: Hong Kong only two weeks from release, Harebrained Schemes have finally released some screenshots of the game's revamped Matrix, in a Kickstarter update dedicated entirely to it. And boy does it look cool:
That gold one is an exampled of a Sculpted System location. The update also comes with a couple of animated GIFs and with two music tracks that play in the new Matrix. Oh, and there's also a message for those of you who are anxious about their keys:
So that's how the new Matrix looks and sounds, but how does it play? Well, we've revised a lot of Matrix systems and added some really fun new stuff such as Watcher IC and Blocker IC which really ramp up the tension of diving into cyberspace and provide a much greater variety of gameplay than before. We'd love to go into more detail but - every minute we can spend testing and polishing the game right now is vital. We hope to tell you more about Matrix gameplay in the coming weeks, or you can see it for yourself on August 20th!
One other thing - we know everyone's anxious to get their keys, so we also want to let you know we're in the process of getting keys and other rewards into your BackerKit accounts. Watch for an update soon announcing that they're available, and for a general status update on the various Kickstarter rewards.
Note that your keys can't be delivered to your account unless you've answered your survey. You can head to the SRHK BackerKit page to double-check that you've answered your survey, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any help.
