The innovative first-person shooter gameplay of Shadowrun, developed by FASA Studio, thrusts gamers into strategic battles that leverage magic and technology. Players must vie for supremacy, playing as a human, elf, dwarf or troll. Cleverness, cunning and split-second improvisation are rewarded through a unique combination of modern weapons, ancient magic, and advanced technology. As the first game to support Microsoft's Games for Windows LIVE service, Shadowrun gives players on both Xbox 360 and Windows Vista a chance to compete, cooperate and communicate across both platforms with a Xbox LIVE Gold or Games for Windows - LIVE Gold account.
Shadowrun will ship with nine unique maps and three additional map variations, showcasing dynamic environments set in a futuristic Santos, Brazil, and its neighboring ancient Ziggurat. Shadowrun includes six training chapters letting gamers fine-tune their strategy and lethal combinations against the intuitively smart and talented A.I. bots. Gamers can also play with bots at four levels of difficulty on every map and game type.
