Nightdive Studios has revealed that their highly-anticipated System Shock remake is headed to PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store later this year alongside Amazon Luna. Here’s what you need to know ahead of the release.
If you’ve been waiting for the release of the upcoming FPS and RPG hybrid, then your wait is almost over, which might come to a surprise to some as Nightdive Studios revealed the release window for their long-awaited System Shock remake, which is expected to launch in the Summer of 2021. The expected launch will be available exclusively on PC via Steam, GOG, and the epic Games Store with a cloud gaming launch on Amazon Luna.
Those who pre-order the game will also get their hands on the System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition for free of charge. Additionally, you can get your first glimpse of the game in the latest trailer down below, but it is worth noting, that the game continues on with the tradition that the groundbreaking 1994 introduced us to when it first launched.
The upcoming version will include all-new HD visuals, updated controls, revamped hacking, and last, but not least, a completely renovated Citadel Station with all sorts of new areas and secrets for fans to discover while maintaining the authenticity of the original experience.
You can check out the official System Shock features down below:
- The Return of SHODAN: The talented Terri Brosius returns to bring her unique vocal venom to the villainous AI SHODAN
- Hackers Gonna Hack: System Shock features a totally revamped hacking system featuring new 6 Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) gameplay, providing new enemies and challenges
- Familiar but… Different: Citadel Station is bigger and more terrifying than ever with all-new areas, traps, puzzles, and of course, plenty of secrets to uncover
- The Sound of Terror: Re-recorded audio logs provide players with a drip-feed of horrifying lore as they piece together exactly what went wrong for the dwellers of Citadel Station
- Robots and Zombies and Lasers… Oh My: Blast, smash, and occasionally flee from re-imagined enemies like angry Repair-Bots, “Hopper” Mobile Lasers, mutants, cyborgs, and all kinds of bloodthirsty monsters and aggressive automatons
At this time, System Shock will be available exclusively on PC. No word has been given whether or not Nightdive Studios will release the game on consoles at a later date. A demo is available today for download.
