Posted on November 12, 2013, Devin Connors Shadowrun Returns Goes DRM-Free, Heading to GOG.com
Thanks to a new agreement we were able to negotiate with our partners at Microsoft, Harebrained Schemes is pleased to announce that we are now able to release fully DRM-free versions of Shadowrun Returns and future expansions such as Berlin.
The DRM-free versions of SRR and Berlin will continue to be fully supported. You’ll be able to download all game patches, use the Shadowrun Returns editor and experience user-generated content downloaded from third-party sites such as Nexus.
The DRM-free version of SR is heading to GOG.com “right now,” so expect to see it on the site within the next week or so, barring any major hurdles.
Released on Steam in July, Shadowrun Returns was one of the first massively successful game funding campaigns on Kickstarter, as Harebrained raised over $1.8 million in total, despite a much lower funding goal of $400,000. The Steam version of SR has been available since July.
