Cliffhanger Productions just announced the release of their most recent update for the Shadowrun Chronicles. A Nanite infection is taking over Boston, and you're invited in on the fun! Wait... that doesn't sound like fun.

Here are some of the details according to Cliffhanger:

INFECTED! puts players in a race against the clock to save themselves from the nanite-induced disease that has struck Boston following a failed experiment by two megacorporations. The resulting infection has cost the life of thousands of citizens and turned the city into a battle zone infested by crazed cyborgs trying to take over any metahuman they can find.  Finding out that they got infected themselves during one of their fights against the headcases, the players struggle desperately to find a cure for the Cognitive Fragmentation Disorder they are suffering, before the AI inside asserts control over their body and mind.

The add-on for Shadowrun Chronicles features all new enemies, missions as well as skills, weapons and cyberware for the player’s Shadowrunner and various improvements to balancing and solo-gameplay. The players will have to face evolving headcases, a cult of fanatic technomancers and a competing team of runners (chosen from actual player avatars in a recent contest) crossing their path time and again. 

The update will run players $9.99 and can be purchased today on all platforms. For more info, check out the official site.

Certainly seems Cliffhanger is intent on keeping the game current, despite financial woes
