Nightdive Studios has shared a new teaser trailer for its ambitious remake of LookingGlass Technologies’ critically acclaimed sci-fi action-adventure FPS, System Shock. Comprising seven minutes of new footage, the trailer provides a look at System Shock’s Research level of Citadel Station and the kind of puzzles, creatures, and spooky corridors that players can expect in the game. Nightdive Studios’ System Shock remake isn’t due until later this summer, but a demo is available now on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store for fans who want to try the game out before its official release.
It’s been a long and eventful road for the System Shock remake, which was originally intended to be a remaster of Looking Glass’ classic first-person sci-fi horror before ballooning in scope. By the time its Kickstarter commenced in July 2016, it was being referred to as a “reboot” and, after a rocky period of development, Nightdive announced it was putting the project on hiatus after letting “things get out of control”.
