Last year it was announced that the highly praised PC cult classic System Shock will be getting the remake treatment, but unfortunately there was no gameplay to go along with the exciting news. Today, the developers at Night Dive Studios were kind enough to finally unveil some pre-alpha gameplay footage on their YouTube channel showcasing a reimagined depiction of the original 1994 game running on Unity.
Here’s a statement from the developers:
“After 20 years, we are remastering 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 updating the user interface and graphics to use a modern day engine (Unity).”
We can expect the System Shock remake to be released sometime in 2017 on Xbox One and PC. Furthermore, Night Dive Studios is also working on System Shock 3 with Deus Ex creator Warren Spector. No release date or window has been announced for that project as of yet. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
