Shadowrun

It's David Blaine. It's Halo 2's multiplayer map Ivory Tower. And it's, er, dwarfs...

Multiplayer. That is coding team FASA's eggs and that is their sole, lonely, solitary basket. Because this, their E3-announced shooter Shadowrun, will not have a Campaign, Story or even single player mode, unless you count a few 'bot battles and a tutorial. Which we don't.

That being said, jettisoning a single-player game in favour of multiplayer only might not be the worst decision in the world when you consider the amount of balancing ahead of them: magic versus weaponry; Vista-powered PC versus Xbox 360; humans versus elf; troll versus dwarf; mouse versus pad; and framerate versus detail. As if to prove how difficult the title has been already, there are still only two versions of Capture The Flag on offer!

Above: Gliders, guns and magic - an interesting combination, but will it work?
