Shadowrun has held a premier spot as a seminal role-playing game setting for nearly thirty-five years. Its signature dark-future dystopia combines advanced cybernetics, reality-bending magic, and fantastic creatures in a unique universe that has reached an audience of millions around the globe through tabletop RPGs, board games, novels, computer games, and much more.
This summer, get ready to dive once more into the shadows of the Sixth World—no matter how you play, there’s a Shadowrun experience waiting for you.
First, today, Paradox Interactive launches the critically acclaimed Shadowrun Trilogy computer role-playing game on consoles. The Shadowrun Trilogy, a remastered release of the Shadowrun Returns RPGs originally released by Harebrained Schemes, has been updated for a console experience, with upscaled graphics, improved performance, and controller-optimized gameplay. All three titles in the series launch simultaneously today for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
Catalyst Game Labs aided the brilliant team at Harebrained Schemes to bring these titles to life, and are delighted that a new generation of runners—as well as long-time players—have the chance to fall in love all over again.
Next, Catalyst recently released the long-anticipated Sixth World Companion for the Shadowrun Sixth World core rulebook, opening a bevy of new options for any style of play.
The Sixth World is wild and weird, but it doesn’t have to be wilder or weirder than you.
If you can dream it, the Sixth World Companion helps you play it. With alternate character creation methods, new metatypes, a whole slew of qualities, and even some rules variations, Sixth World Companion brings dozens of options to your game table for you to build your vision of what your runner should be.
Finally, Catalyst is beyond excited to announce that Shadowrun is finally coming to Roll20! An all-in-one solution for organizing and playing tabletop games online, Roll20 has reached 10 million users and recently celebrated its ten-year anniversary.
