Shadowrun Returns Dragonfall Expansion Gets Stand Alone “Director’s Cut” Release

Harebrained Schemes announced in a recent Kickstarter Update that the expansion to their Kickstarted RPG Shadowrun Returns, Dragonfall, will be getting its own “Director’s Cut” stand-alone release this September. This extended version of Dragonfall will feature as-of-yet unannounced new content, and will be available for free to original Kickstarter backers and those who have already bought Dragonfall.

The Director’s Cut of Shadowfall: Dragon’s Fall was announced in Harebrained Schemes’ Kickstarter Update #73, (which you can see below) and coincided with the one-year anniversary of the release of Shadowrun Returns. The turn-based RPG is a revival of the classic RPG/table top universe of Shadowrun, a sci-fi fiction future in which magic suddenly returns to world, transforming some people into elves, dwarves, orcs, and even dragons who intermingle with futuristic technology. If you’re thinking Bladerunner-meets-Firefly-meets-Dungeons-and-Dragons, you’re on the right track.

Shadowrun Returns was met with largely glowing reviews, including our own. The update, Dragonfall, was likewise well-received. The stand-alone Director’s Cut of Shadowrun: Dragonfall does not yet have a price, and details on the new content are not yet available, but Harebrained Schemes promises to have more information next month.

Shadowrun Returns is available for PC, iOS, Linux, and Android. Dragonfall is currently available as DLC.

Our Take
It’s great to see Kickstarter success stories like this one. By listening to and responding to feedback, Harebrained Schemes seems to be doing an admirable job staying committed to its backers and its game. The Director’s Cut seems like it could be really cool, especially if the new content is substantial. It’s also a smart move that the new content is being made available to people who’ve already bought the original Dragonfall.
