Cliffhanger Productions has announced that a significant patch has been applied to Shadowrun Online. Of notable interest is the increase in party size, a World Map, quest hubs and cooperative game play. Much more has been added to Shadowrun Online including overhauled skills, new skill trees, new missions and more.
- Increased Party Size: Depending on the run you will now be able to select up to three henchmen who will accompany your character.
- Co-Op with a friend: No need to play coop with random people anymore! Add fellow runners to your friend’s list and invite them to experience the story of Shadowrun Online together! (Please note: You will need friends in your friends list in order to play co-op missions)
- Skill trees: Spend Karma in eight different skill groups - Conjuring, Spellcasting, Blades, Blunt, Pistols, Shotguns, Automatics and Hacking. Please note that the skills in these groups are only available up to Rank 5 for now. There will be more ranks in later versions of the game as well as a ninth tree for Rigging.
- Skill rework: All skills have been revisited, some old ones removed and lots of new abilities were added!
