Shadowrun Returns 'Berlin' DLC delayed, growing into expansion

Shadowrun Returns developer Harebrained Schemes is delaying the game's first add-on campaign, Berlin, and building it out into a full-length expansion based on fan feedback, the studio announced last week.

Harebrained's original plan, the studio said last week, was to make "a modest-sized campaign that we could ship by the end of October," a date the company gave earlier this month.

"However, after listening to your forum discussions and feedback, it became clear that you would like to see something bigger (and so would we)," said Harebrained. "So, we've decided to spend more time on Berlin to create an experience closer to the size of Dead Man’s Switch," the game's existing campaign.

Because Harebrained is spending more time on Berlin, the studio is now aiming to release the expansion in January 2014. The company is in the pre-production stage of development on Berlin, and it's designing the campaign to contain a story with more options for players, a European city with a different feel and improved gameplay for the Physical Adept archetype.

Harebrained released Shadowrun Returns late last month on Windows PC and Mac. The studio is now working on the tablet and Linux versions of the main game, in addition to Berlin.
