Dragonfall is an expansion pack for Shadowrun Returns and requires the original game to play. This new campaign builds upon the gameplay of Shadowrun Returns through a new storyline.
As all Shadowrun games, Dragonfall is set in the Sixth World, a cyberpunk future where magic has returned to the world. More specifically, Dragonfall takes place in Berlin, in 2054. A long time ago, in 2012, the rampaging Great Dragon Feuershwinge ("Firewing") was shot down by the German military, an event nicknamed the "Dragonfall". The player is the next recruit of an hardened team of shadowrunners, clandestine operatives doing the dirty work of megacorporations and other power players. Soon, the team gets caught in a web of intrigue and conspiracy that seems somehow linked to the death of the Dragon, 42 years earlier.
New gameplay features in Dragonfall include the ability to save anywhere, a greater emphasis on playing a team of characters with different personalities and backstories, and more freedom for the player to choose his missions, using the city of Berlin as a hub. The add-on also features new environments, new character portraits for both the player and the NPCs, and a new soundtrack.
