Fight to the death in space in the new first-person shooter game remake System Shock from Nightdive Studios.


System Shock is the remake of the beloved P.C. classic. Updating mechanics, graphics, and enemy A.I. System Shock is here to offer a new generation of players a chance to go toe-to-toe with one of gaming’s iconic enemies: SHODAN. Fight, hack, and save humanity from a fate worse than death.


The remake of the genre-defining 1994 classic System Shock has been on fans’ radar for some time now, and Nightdive has worked tirelessly to breathe new life into the game with a full-fledged — and absolutely stunning — remake that’ll shine on modern hardware.



The first thing fans will notice is a brand-new introduction sequence for the game; this sets the mood and stage for what’s to come once they arrive at Citadel Station. Additionally, the demo offers a glimpse into what life was like as a resident of 2072 New Atlanta.


As they explore Citadel, fans will discover that the halls of the Medical level are now littered with debris and clutter, alongside a few new enemies eager to make their acquaintance! Existing enemies from the original demo are more intelligent and sound better than ever, thanks to an overhaul of A.I. and audio systems! Gib-happy fans of old-school shooters will also notice that enemies are particularly juicy thanks to new dismemberment tech.


There are also some new machines found across the level: Vending Machines to satiate the thirstiest of Hackers, Recycling Stations to earn some extra cred, Transdermal Dispensers for those who need a pick-me-up, and a mysterious Mod-Kit station. The new demo additionally adds improved controller support.


Nightdive Studios has worked closely with many of the original System Shock team members, including the voice of rogue AI SHODAN — Terri Brosius — to ensure that the remake honors the title’s legacy to the utmost degree. The game’s setting, Citadel Station, is bigger and more terrifying than ever, with all-new areas, traps, puzzles, and secrets to uncover.


System Shock will be released This March. You can pre-order your copy now from Linux via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Game Store for USD 39.99. It includes a free copy of the upcoming System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition for all early buyers. System Shock will also release for Xbox One, Series S|X, and PlayStation 4 and 5.
