Shadowrun Online is a kickstarter project with a week left before their funding period ends. New footage showcases the "multi-layered" world concept, allowing players to see environments, NPCs, and and enemies in different ways depending on their own abilities.
While a Street Samurai may see weaknesses in enemy armor, a Hacker will see security and information nodes lying out of regular sight. The possibilities with this new gameplay mechanic could easily set the game apart from the pack.
“By combining these world views members of a team can support each other’s tactical decisions while players can experience the world and its challenges from very different perspectives – a game concept our team is quite excited about” says Jan Wagner, Co-Founder of Cliffhanger Productions.
