Nightdive Studios’ System Shock remake has been given a new PC release date. Hackers new and old will be able to revisit Citadel Station on May 30.
The original System Shock saw players dropped into Citadel Station after an AI, SHODAN, has taken over it and its crew. SHODAN, now planning on using a laser to destroy Earth’s major cities, must be stopped. Following the guidance of Rebecca Lansing (a TriOptimum consultant), the player has to navigate enemies, fight SHODAN in cyberspace, and escape the station.
In a post on Steam, Nightdive Studios addressed the pushback. “We had hoped to bring the game to market by the end of March,” said the studio. “But that turned out to be just beyond our reach; we are after all merely human (unlike Shodan!)
In the transmission, Shodan makes her message clear: she’s coming back and more formidable than ever. Players must return to Citadel Station to stop the destruction of humanity. The System Shock remake will feature new weapons, never-before-seen enemies, and an updated hacking system to keep hackers on their toes.
System Shock is currently available for pre-purchase on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Store. All early PC purchases will also include System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition on release day. No release date has been announced for consoles but was confirmed to release on PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One and X|S.
