System Shock Remake launches May 30 on PC
Nightdive Studio's remake of System Shock, the PC immersive sim classic will finally launch on May 30, 2023 on PC (Steam, GOG, Epic). The previously confirmed console release will come at a later date.
Originally announced as a KickStarter in 2016, System Shock's remake has gone through a tumultuous development cycle - to put things lightly. After nearly 7 years of development fans will finally get a chance to see the game remade and reimagined later this year.
The wait is (almost) over. The PC edition of System Shock – the fully fledged remake of the groundbreaking original from 1994 – will go on sale on Tuesday 30 May this year.
We had hoped to bring the game to market by the end of March, but that turned out to be just beyond our reach; we are after all merely human (unlike Shodan!)
The System Shock remake combines the cult gameplay of the iconic original game with all-new HD visuals, updated controls, an overhauled interface and all-new sounds and music. From never before seen enemies and quality of life gameplay tweaks, to a revamped hacking system and visceral new combat options featuring a brutal dismemberment system, the System Shock remake welcomes players new and old back to Citadel Station and the arms of the delightfully villainous SHODAN.
Players use a combination of stealth, cunning and futuristic weaponry to make their way through Citadel Station's all-new areas; players will encounter traps, puzzles and secrets in their quest to try and save Earth from destruction.
The PC edition of System Shock is available to pre-order via Steam, GOG and the Epic Games Store - and includes a free copy of the upcoming System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition for all early buyers. The newly released Steam Next Fest playable demo can be found on the respective storefronts.
Console editions of System Shock will release on PlayStation 4|5 and Xbox One and Series S|X in due course; more details on this when we have them.
