Shadowrun Returns launching in June, physical backer rewards coming 3 weeks later

Shadowrun Returns, Harebrained Schemes' Kickstarted tactical role-playing game, is currently slated for launch in June with physical backer rewards expected to ship three weeks later, according to a recent update.

As of today, backers will be able to receive emails from the developer with a link and password to the Harebrained Account website, where they can send their mailing information. Digital rewards will be released on the game's launch day.

Additionally, the digital edition of Shadowrun Returns will likely be released via Steam and all backers will receive a Steam key. According to the update, this will allow the developer to "provide up-to-date downloads and patching along with a vibrant ecosystem for developing community-created content and files sharing." The Harebrained Account website will also contain a downloadable version of the game to fulfill the developer's promise of a DRM-free copy.

Tablet and mobile versions of the game will be available on the Apple and Android app stores, and a Linux version is expected after launch.

Fundraising for Shadowrun Returns launched in 2012 and surpassed its $400,000 goal, achieving more than $1.8 million with the help of 36,276 backers. You can read the full update here.
