Game News - posted by Infinitron on Fri 5 February 2016, 20:20:53Tags: Harebrained Schemes; Shadowrun: Hong Kong; Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Shadows of Hong Kong
Without much in the way of hype other than a single Facebook post last week, Harebrained Schemes have released their Shadows of Hong Kong sequel mini-campaign for Shadowrun: Hong Kong. Along the way, they've also added audio commentary to the game and in true Kickstarter RPG tradition, rebranded it as an Extended Edition. The latest update has the details:
So, we’ve rebranded the title as Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Extended Edition to reflect all the new content. Hong Kong has never been better!
The Extended Edition update is free for all Backers and existing owners of Shadowrun: Hong Kong - to receive the update, you just need to go to your chosen game store (Steam, GOG, or Humble) and download it as you would any other game update. (On Steam this should be automatic.)
Shadows of Hong Kong Bonus Campaign
Set in the weeks following the events of the main campaign, Shadows of Hong Kong will give you -- and your team -- the opportunity to turn the tables on the elite corporate police force that once hunted you. Through layers of corporate greed and urban strife, you will contend with dangerous enemies, uncover a deadly conspiracy, and cement your reputation as a Prime Runner… assuming that you survive, of course.
To play the bonus campaign: after updating to the latest version of the game, select “New Game” from the main title screen menu (see below) to find the new campaign and continue your adventure! Note: You must have completed the main Shadowrun: Hong Kong campaign in order to play Shadows of Hong Kong. When you start Shadows of Hong Kong you will be able to select a high-karma character to import from any valid "final save" file to continue the story with.
Over 100+ Minutes of Audio Commentary!
The team had a great time recording the Audio Commentary for the game.You’ll hear more about character motivations, the interesting choices you’re familiar with, or perhaps even some Easter Eggs you may have missed. (SPOILER ALERT: If you want to discover these things on your own, listen at your own risk - the Commentary assumes that you’ve already played the game!)
Interactive audio icons are spread throughout the game where the various areas are discussed. Our hope is that you have some extra fun along with us and learn a little something more about the game at the same time. Audio commentary can be enabled in the Options menu.
Here’s a quick taste of the audio commentary.
