System Shock Remake Has Been Delayed To Late May On PC
Prime Matter along with developer, Nightdive Studios, were preparing for the release of System Shock on PC in late March. However, the companies have announced that the game will now release on PC on May 30th. Furthermore, the game will release on the PlayStation and Xbox platforms sometime thereafter. The System Shock Remake is one of the most highly anticipated titles for the year.
Via its Steam page, the developers stated, “The wait is (almost) over. The PC edition of System Shock – the fully fledged remake of the groundbreaking original from 1994 – will be released on 30 May this year. We had hoped to bring the game to market by the end of March, but that turned out to be just beyond our reach; we are after all merely human (unlike Shodan!)” Furthermore, the game is currently available for pre-order on Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store and includes a free copy of the upcoming System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition.
Moreover, in the release, the team stated, “Console editions of System Shock will be released on PlayStation 4|5 and Xbox One and Series S|X in due course; more details on this when we have them.” In the remake, players will face off against SHODAN as they save earth from certain doom. The remake features classic gameplay with enhanced graphics, HD visuals, revamped controls and a brand-new interface.
