Nightdive Studios has released a demo for System Shock.
A new demo for the System Shock remake is now available on PC.
If you are unfamiliar with the game, here’s a quick synopsis:
You’re a renowned hacker, the most notorious cyberspace thief in the corporate world. Caught during a risky break-in, you become indentured to a greedy TriOptimum executive. After six months in a healing coma, you awaken to the twisted aftermath of a terrible disaster. Where are the surgeons? Why is the station in such disrepair? Slowly, the chilling realization that something is very wrong creeps over you. Once a prime corporate research facility, Citadel Station now teems with mindless cyborgs, robots, and terribly mutated beings, all programmed to serve SHODAN, a ruthless A.I. There’s scarcely time to think before it unleashes the first terror.
The remake of the lauded game adds a new look and feel and retains all the “classic stylings,” story, and gameplay of the original.
A release date has yet to be announced.
A look at the alpha demo with developer commentary is currently live on YouTube, and you can check it out below.
