System Shock is getting a remake for PC this summer with a demo already playable

Nightdive Studios is releasing a remake of the 1994 game System Shock this summer. The remake is currently only coming to PC via Steam, GOG, the Epic Games Store and Amazon Luna. Console versions of the remake will follow after the PC release.

The System Shock remake is a full and faithful remake of the original 1994 System Shock. Players can already play a demo and pre-order the game for 37.99 via the Nightdive Studios website, or via Steam, GOG or Epic. euros. In addition, players will receive a free copy of System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition when it comes out.

The game was initially developed as a Kickstarter campaign in 2016, raising more than $1.3 million from just over 21,000 backers. The makers say in an update on Kickstarter that the development of the game came with the necessary bumps, but that the game is faithful to the original game. The game should be released at the end of the summer.

Like the original game, the System Shock remake centers around an anonymous hacker who wakes up on a space station after six months of sleep. On board, murderous robots, cyborgs and mutants have taken over. The artificial intelligence of the SHODAN space station is the culprit. The hacker must regain control of the space station by fighting and hacking past the enemies.

According to Nightdive Studios, the remake will have completely renewed HD images, improved controls and the hacking system has been revised with 6 degrees of freedom. Space Station Citadel Station has been renovated and has new areas, puzzles and secrets to discover. Enemies have also been revised and improved. Musician and voice actress Terri Brosius has once again provided the voice of Shodan. The audio logs that were so important to the lore in the original game have been re-recorded.
