System Shock

Finally, another look at System Shock, with Warren Spector, no less

Still no release date

Nightdive Studios’ System Shock remake was shown today at the PC Gaming Show, with a surprise appearance from classic game designer Warren Spector. He mused on how primitive the old UI was for the original, and the “unfortunate” nature of the modern era not really seeing the influence of System Shock.

He also told PC Gamer the following:

“I think of myself, as much as anything, as a relentless advocate for a particular kind of game, the genre we call immersive simulation. Games that are designed to let the player feel—basically force the player to feel—like it’s them in the world, with as few distractions and ‘game-y’ things as possible. System Shock was really, at the time, the most advanced version of that, and I can’t tell you how much the team is responsible for that.”

It’s still due out on PC, PS4/PS5, Xbox One/Xbox Series X. Keeping in time with every reveal so far, there is no release date in sight for it! If we eventually get a release date, or even a real window for this thing, it just wouldn’t be a System Shock remake trailer.
