Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown (originally marketed as Shadowrun Online) is a turn-based tactical video game developed by Cliffhanger Productions and published by Nordic Games GmbH as part of Jordan Weisman's cyberpunk Shadowrun fictional universe.[4]


Development and release[edit]

Following the success of the Shadowrun Returns Kickstarter campaign, Cliffhanger Productions initiated a similar campaign to crowdsource $500,000 in July 2012, and pledged to deliver a closed beta version of Shadowrun Online for contributors around May 2013.[5]


IGN awarded the game a score of 6.5 out of 10, saying "smart co-op partners make Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown's tactical combat work, but anything less falls short."[6] It has a 63/100 rating on Metacritic.[7] Gamespot awarded it a score of 3 out of 10, saying "Shadowrun Chronicles isn't just a bad Shadowrun game. It's a bad game. That it comes from a series with such an exceptional pedigree and plenty of exceptional recent successes just makes the disappointment that much more bitter."[8]
