Monorail Stories Review – Synchronicity of Relaxation and Tension Dead Space Remake Gameplay Trailer is Here! Gamevice Flex Launching October 25th Overwatch Is Officially Dead Funtasia Review. A Hard But Addictive 2D Racer

Back in 1994, we saw a studio called LookingGlass Technologies introduce gamers to a Sci-Fi techno horror franchise.  The series in question was System Shock,  The game takes place in 2072 on a space station.  You are a security hacker trying to stop the AI on board by the name of SHODAN.  Two years later we saw the sequel which slightly outshone the original. We also know a third installment is on the way. For those who never played the series, you may be familiar with its spiritual successors; namely the original Deus Ex and Bioshock games. And after almost thirty years the game is back in the limelight, thanks to the remake coming from Nightdive Studios. While a third game is coming, we were overdue for a System Shock Remake.

For the fans of the original series, you may be wondering how they are approaching the System Shock Remake. The team goes more into it on their official site but you can read the following excerpt:

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!

So it seems it’s clearly a project they care about it and want to get it right.  Personally, I loved the original game back in the day and also the sequel.

Where It Stands Today

When initially announced, it was looking like PC only.  In fact, there is a playable demo on Steam which was revealed along with a 2022 release date.

Then at Gamescom, we had a fresh look at the game in the form of a new trailer. So let’s have a look at the game today.

As we see, it gives a glimpse of what to expect in the game when it launches.  We have no further news in regard to the release date. However, we do see some news in regards to what it will be launching on.  The end of the trailer reveals it’s coming to consoles alongside the PC. So gamers on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.  However, there’s no guarantee we will see this on the last gen hardware, as we’ve seen more developers abandon those systems recently.  Are you excited to play this when it finally drops, let us know down below? The game is available to Wishlist on Steam at the time of writing, though it is yet to appear on console storefronts as of yet.
