Shadowrun Online has launched on Steam Early Access with a prequel storyline to the final version’s main campaign. The turn-based MMO is set in a dystopian future, where gangs and Megacorp mercenaries roam the streets of Boston. Gamers will be able to try out the class-free character-creation system as they take their tech-savvy magician, gun-crazy pyro, or other bizarre hybrid Shadowrunner on four missions and against others in player-versus-player combat. Content will be added as development progresses, and players who take part during the Early Access period will have their feedback taken into consideration when features are added or tweaked.
The Age of Wonders series has been dormant for over a decade, but it returns today with the release of Age of Wonders 3 on GOG and Steam. The Triumph Studios-developed turn-based strategy title features online play with versus modes and scenarios, two playable factions, new leader classes (e.g., warlord, rogue, theocrat), a new tactical combat system, and an increased focus on unit specialization. Leaders will have to undertake quests, set up economies, negotiate with neighboring factions, and of course, crush enemy armies.
Over the weekend, Sega announced that Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation will be launching online and in stores on October 7. The survival-horror adventure title is taking a less action-oriented approach in comparison to its shooter predecessors, and will instead focus on the sense of paranoia and fear felt by the crew in the original film.
