Nightdive Studios has published another playable version of System Shock’s upcoming remake.
System Shock is in a weird situation: the first game is being remade by Nightdive Studios, but the third game is handled by OtherSide Entertainment, now with backing from a big Chinese tech company with state party ties (Tencent, who also happen to be involved with PlatinumGames, Quantic Dream, and even Ubisoft). However, the IP’s rights should mostly be with Nightdive, who still progress slowly but steadily with their project.
The new System Shock remake demo is now available on Steam and GOG. „After two decades, Nightdive Studios is rebooting and re-imagining the original System Shock. We will keep the new game true to the classic experience, keeping all the things you loved while giving today’s gamers the modern look and feel expected from a AAA title.
This Alpha Demo will give you a brief preview of the game. Please keep in mind this is a very early demo, so performance, content, etc. is not final. With the help of members of the original team, including the original Voice Actor of SHODAN, Terri Brosius, Citadel Station has never been more immersive or terrifying!
You’re a renowned hacker, the most notorious cyberspace thief in the corporate world. Caught during a risky break-in, you become indentured to a greedy TriOptimum executive. After six months in a healing coma, you awaken to the twisted aftermath of a terrible disaster. Where are the surgeons? Why is the station in such disrepair? Slowly, the chilling realization that something is very wrong creeps over you. Once a prime corporate research facility, Citadel Station now teems with mindless cyborgs, robots and mutated beings, all programmed to serve SHODAN, a ruthless A.I. There’s scarcely time to think before it unleashes the first terror…”, the GOG page says,
We still think System Shock’s remake (which runs on Unreal Engine 4) is a good two years away from being completed…
