PC-Xbox 360 play debuts May 29

PC and Xbox 360 action game Shadowrun will come out on May 29, Microsoft has confirmed.

Shadowrun is the first title out the door that supports cross-platform play between PC and Xbox 360, made possible through Microsoft's Xbox Live and Games for Windows - Live services.

The game is based on the pen and paper RPG of the same name, dropping players into a near-future world where they have access to magic and kick-ass tech and weaponry. You get to fight for global mega-corporation RNA or the spell-loving Lineage and blast things to kingdom come.

Shadowrun is one of only two games announced so far that'll support cross-platform on release. The second is UNO, which is expected to lay its cross-platform cards on the table at the end of the year. It's possible that Valve's Team Fortress 2 will ship with cross-platform support, but nothing's definite.
