EN World Review – Shadowrun 5th Edition (Pre-Release Review!)

CAT27000_Shadowrun5-OriginsSpecialEdition_Cover_400wide1Greetings and Salutations, Fellow Gamers and Gentle Readers!

For those of you residing in the United States, I also extend a Safe and Happy Fourth of July Holiday!  I hope your cookouts are sumptuous and your fireworks bright!

I myself am planning on attending a couple cookouts myself, as well as looking forward to a spectacular fireworks show tomorrow night!  But most importantly, there’s nothing like a mid-week holiday to enjoy a pleasant respite from the grind, and spend some quality time with friends and family.  Well, there’s also the beer and the brauts to look forward to, which is never a bad thing…

I have to say that I am very excited, nay, ecstatic, to bring you today’s EN World Review!  One of my all-time favorite role-playing games, Shadowrun, has a new edition coming out next week, and Catalyst Game Labs was kind enough to grant me a pre-release copy of Shadowrun 5th Edition to review!  On July 11th, the PDF version of the game is hitting the virtual bookshelves over at Drive-Thru RPG, with the hardbound version available by the end of the month.

In addition, I had the opportunity to ask Line Designer Jason M. Hardy a few questions about this new edition – and I’ve included his answers as part of the review itself!

So for all the details about this new edition of Shadowrun, please click the link below to be whisked over to EN World News for the complete Review and Q&A:

Shadowrun 5th Edition: Coming Soon to a MegaCorp Near You!

I’m very pleased to have been one of the few reviewers to get an advanced copy of the Shadowrun 5th Edition Core Rulebook, and I really appreciate the folks over at Catalyst Game Labs for making that possible.

So until next blog… I wish you a Happy and Safe Independence Day!
