Shadowrun Returns This June
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Harebrained Schemes recently revealed information about the upcoming June release of its Shadowrun Returns RPG. The company plans to release the game on Steam, although it will also offer a DRM-free version of the game from its website. A new blog post details the company's reasons for choosing Steam, and explains the limitations of the DRM-free option.
We realize that for some of you, releasing on Steam isn’t your first choice but there are a lot of really great things we get from this decision that allow us to focus on the game rather than on making things like backend servers to deploy and manage shared content. From the start, we’ve had to make practical decisions like this one to ensure we get the most out of the support you’ve given us. We consider this to be the best option for everyone.

Shadowrun Returns Release Details
Now, that may prompt the question, “What about DRM-free?” To honor our original promise of a DRM-free version of the game, the Harebrained Account Website will also contain a downloadable version of Shadowrun Returns that does not include Steam integration. While this version will include the Seattle story (and Berlin, via a one-time update), without Steam integration, it will be unable to browse and play community-created stories from within the game. Any future DLC will only be available through Steam.
