Here’s one last trailer for the eagerly anticipated Shadowrun Returns.  For those of you new to the series, Shadowrun was originally a table top RPG which blended aspects of dark fantasy and cyberpunk into a unique setting where magic has returned to modern times and now works hand in hand with science.  As a result, you have humans who have been turned into orcs and goblins, while every day children are being born as elves or dwarves or any other number of once mythological races.  The genre also combines elements ranging from detective noir to crime drama to horror.

The game itself looks to incorporate turn based combat and play from a 3rd person isometric point of view.  Think Xcom or the original Fallout series (I’m talking 1&2, Tactics never happened). Shadowrun will release for PC and tablets this month, on July 25 and should retail for $19.99.

Check out the trailer below.
