Nightdive Studios has released new screenshots for the System Shock remake. There are 15 of them, showcasing the design and visual effects of the new version. The team working on the new game has stated they are working with the developers from the original to retain the spirit of it, while also asking what they would do differently now. The upcoming game has some notable veterans behind it from well-known franchises such as Fallout: New Vegas, Mass Effect, and BioShock.

We’ve gathered a team of industry veterans from games like Fallout: New Vegas, Mass Effect, and BioShock to create a faithful reboot of the classic game we all know and love. In System Shock, you’ll take on the role of a resourceful hacker as you explore and survive the terrors of Citadel Station brought on by a rogue AI named SHODAN.

To ensure this reboot is as true to the original as possible, we’ve been collaborating with the original developers of System Shock 1. Understanding what they would do differently and keep the same has helped us to refresh a classic in ways Looking Glass Studios would have.

We’re making System Shock for gamers that missed the opportunity to appreciate the original, and for the dedicated fans of System Shock 1. We love talking to our backers, so please help support this project and share your thoughts as we make the best System Shock for all of you!

A demo for the game can be found here. Prime Matter also held an event on Twitch, where it streamed videos of the demo.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
