A new demo for the System Shock remake is now available on PC

Nightdive Studios has released a demo for System Shock.

A new demo for the System Shock remake is now available on PC.

The new alpha demo is now available on GOG and Steam, and it features all unlockable weapons for the first time.

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.
