Shadowrun Online Early Access March 31
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Cliffhanger Productions has revealed its upcoming Shadowrun Online will be available for Steam Early Access on March 31. A separate project from Harebrained Schemes' single player focused Shadowrun Returns, Cliffhanger's title will center on multiplayer action with co-op gameplay and player vs player faction wars set in a persistent world.

Become one of the infamous Shadowrunners in this multi-platform online version of one of the most successful pen and paper RPGs ever. Experience Shadowrun with your friends and plenty of enemies in a true cross-platform game and determine the future of the 6th world! Live your life on the edge, fight corporations and gangs and try to stay alive doing the most dangerous job of all: Shadowrunner.

Watch your back.
Shoot straight.
Conserve ammo.
And never, ever, cut a deal with a dragon.

In Shadowrun Online, set in the 2070s of our world, dragons are running mega corporations, Amerindian braves battle it out with Ork street gangs over turf, elf hackers glide through the all-encompassing matrix and cybered up street samurai face toxic spirits in the rubble of ruined streets. And YOU will be shaping the future of this world!

Become a spell slinging mage, a cybered-up Street Sam or a matrix-running Hacker. Choose from hundreds of different types of magical and mundane gear or even change your body by adding implants and cyber-augmentations to improve your abilities.

Every character perceives the game world differently: While mages can see auras and look into the spirit plane, the right implant allows you to interact with the overlay of augmented reality permeating the modern world and hack anything from security cameras to combat drones. Knowledge really is power in Shadowrun Online.

And the best part is: In Shadowrun Online the collective actions of players will not only determine the fate of the online game world, but our unique player-driven plotline will enable you to determine the future of the whole Shadowrun Universe! Events players trigger will also cross over into the pen and paper storyline – so you can shape the future of the Shadowrun Universe!

At its core SRO is a full Unity3D online game, accessible through Windows, Mac, Android, iOS- and Linux and on Ouya, with high quality graphics and great effects. It is fully cross platform, meaning you can play it on your tablet in the train, then go home to sit down at your PC to continue with the same character. Highly individualizable characters and a turn based system, which balances fast-paced action with deep tactical combat, make it a true Shadowrun experience.

Welcome to the dark side of the future, pal. It’s going to be a hell of a ride.

New Screens For BioShock Infinite: Burial At Sea - Episode 2
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

2K and Irrational Games have revealed three new screenshots for BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two, the third add-on content pack for the award-winning BioShock Infinite. Available for download worldwide on March 25, the Mac version is brought to gamers by Aspyr Media.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two is built almost entirely from scratch by Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock and BioShock Infinite. The narrative of this add-on content pack concludes the storyline of BioShock Infinite and Burial at Sea, as seen through the eyes of a new player character, Elizabeth, and features all-new stealth-oriented gameplay, as well as new weapons and modes.

About BioShock Infinite

From the creators of the highest-rated first-person shooter of all time, BioShock, BioShock Infinite puts players in the shoes of U.S. Cavalry veteran turned hired gun, Booker DeWitt. Indebted to the wrong people and with his life on the line, DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 2 will be available for $14.99.

Gabriel Knight: Sins Of The Fathers Trailer Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A new trailer is available now for Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, a 20th anniversary remake of the classic Sierra Online adventure game from the 90's. The 20th anniversary edition will include all new retina display quality visuals and voice recordings, a remastered soundtrack by original composer Robert Holmes, as well as some special edition content.

In 1993, a rash of ritual voodoo murders took place in the swamps and back alleys of New Orleans. With local police baffled, only one man was equipped to solve the case: Gabriel Knight, owner of a French Quarter bookstore, struggling novelist, and an unwitting descendent in a long line of shadow-hunting Schattenjägers. Armed with little more than a sacred dagger and talisman, his N'awlins drawl, and his own irresistible brand of charm, Gabriel Knight quickly became a gaming sensation when Sierra On-Line released his first adventure, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers®, in December 1993.
 
Twenty years later, the charismatic Schattenjäger is making a welcome comeback thanks to the work of Gabriel Knight® creator Jane Jensen's indie development studio, Pinkerton Road LLC, which licensed the Gabriel Knight IP from Activision Publishing, Inc.. The Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th anniversary edition is planned for a mid-2014 release as a digital download for PC, Mac®, iPad®, and Android™. The game is being reconstructed from scratch with all new retina display quality visuals and voice recording, in a development process overseen by Jensen.
 
The revamped Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers will feature the same mature storyline and puzzle solving as the 1993 version, with research assistant Grace Nakimura, the inept Detective Mosely, and the local color of New Orleans supporting Gabriel's paranormal investigation. Stunning high-res (2048x1536) 3D graphics will replace the original 640x480 resolution pixel art, presenting the authentic New Orleans environments with more detail than ever before. The remake will also have a remastered soundtrack by Robert Holmes, the game's original composer, and will include special edition content.
 
Pinkerton Road has been working on the Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th anniversary edition under the working title "Mystery Game X" for about a year. The studio also has a brand new adventure game, Moebius, slated for release in 2013.
