If you already own Shadowrun: Hong Kong and you’ve been mulling it over in the head-muscle set between your eyes as to whether or not you could take the dive and purchase Shadowrun Hong: Kong Extended Edition, Harebrained Schemes makes the choice easy for you by automatically and freely upgrading the game to the Extended Edition for anyone who already owns Shadowrun: Hong Kong.
In a recent press release they explained that the extended edition will be available as a free upgrade to those who already own the previous version, and that it is available right now on Steam, GOG.com and the Humble Store.
Additionally, the Extended Edition is 50% off the normal price during the Steam Lunar New Year Sale. This is in celebration of the Chinese New Year. You can grab a copy of Shadowrun: Hong Kong for only $9.99 instead of the typical $19.99 price.
The Extended Edition comes with 100 minutes of developer commentary, improved mission and content editor for Steam Workshop support, improved visual effects, updated dialogue and new missions, including a bonus campaign. As mentioned in the press release… <br<>blockquote.
“the Shadows of Hong Kong bonus campaign 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.”
You can check out a trailer for the Extended Edition below.
The turn-based combat, team customization, cyberpunk setting and story-driven campaign are all present.
If you’re the kind of gamer itching for a Hong Kong-based cyberpunk thriller, Shadowrun: Hong Kong attempts to fill the void.
The game is highly regarded amongst fans and if you already own the Hong Kong rendition then you already own the Extended Edition. If you don’t already own it, it might be something worth considering now that the Steam sale is going on.
