Ordeal of System Shock Remake Fans is Coming to an End After 8 Years

Nothing is likely to get in the way of the remake of the iconic System Shock anymore. The developers have announced that the game has been completed and is just waiting for release.

Nightdive Studios, together with Prime Matter, have delivered good news for gamers eagerly awaiting the release of the remake of System Shock. Work on the game has been completed, which means that it should hit the market as planned, i.e. on May 30, 2023..

"The wait is (almost) over. PC Edition of System Shock - a full-fledged remake of the groundbreaking 1994 original - will be released on May 30 this year.

We had hoped to launch the game by the end of March, but it turned out to be beyond our reach; after all, we're only human (unlike Shodan!)," reads an excerpt from the announcement published on Steam.

Making things a little more specific - the release of the game announced eight years ago has been repeatedly postponed. The work of Nightdive Studios was originally scheduled to debut back in 2017. The developers made System Shock wit for a really long time.

System Shock Remake - key information

System Shock Remake combines the gameplay known from the original game with new high-resolution graphics, improved controls, a redesigned interface, as well as a completely new audio setting.

The icing on the cake is the opportunity to clash with the series' main antagonist - an artificial intelligence named Shodan.

The title will initially be available only on PC. It will be available on Steam, GOG andEpic Games Store.

On PS4, PS5, XOne and XSX/S System Shock Remake is expected to arrive at a later date. Unfortunately, the exact date has not yet been revealed.

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
