This summer, Catalyst Game Labs will release an updated and revamped version of its deck builder game Shadowrun Crossfire.

Shadowrun Crossfire:  Prime Runner Edition features the same core mechanics and cooperative game play as the original version, but with minor changes to the rules and character cards to smooth out the play and make it easier for new players to get up to speed.  Additional missions have also been added to the base game box to give players more options on how to play the game.

Catalyst has taken some lessons from its fantasy version of the game, Dragonfire, and implemented them into the older Shadowrun Crossfire, while ensuring that players who are already familiar with the game are not disrupted by major changes.  The new edition will mostly feature art from the original game along with some new artwork.

The Prime Runner Edition supports play with 2 to 5 players, and is intended for ages 13 and up.  Games take 1 to 2 hours to play.  MSRP is $59.99.

Catalyst released Shadowrun Crossfire in 2014 (see “‘Shadowrun:  Crossfire’ This Fall”).  Dragonfire, published under a Dungeons & Dragons license, was released last year (see “‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Deck Building Game ‘Dragonfire’”).
