So I'm looking into getting this as kind of an intro to the Shadowrun universe, as I will be GMing the standard 5th edition game and I have five players that don't know anything about the universe.

I figured it would give them a taste of the art and feel of the world.

However, I'm having problems figuring out how many players I can have playing at once.

It looks like the base game is 1-4 players, but they have character expansion packs.

Do these expansions allow more than 4 players to play or just more options for the 4 players to choose?

Bonus question: If all you can ever have is 4, would it be feasible to buy two copies of the game and either combine them into one or have 6-8 people sitting at the same table and run two of them back to back?

The game does technically scale to infinite numbers if you have enough enough character cards and base starting cards. However, I feel this would make a very difficult experience as some of the challenges are REALLY hard. Also, it'd take much longer. The game is balanced around 4 players, and it is easy to go to 6 with High Caliber Ops. But in theory you could take 2 copies of the base game and play 8.

I do really wonder how well it'd play with that many people.
