System Shock Remastered for PC and Xbox One gets scary in new trailer

System Shock, the classic sci-fi first person role-playing game from Looking Glass Studios, was first released in 1994, is coming back in a new, and graphically revamped, version. Developer Night Dive Studios has released the first gameplay trailer for System Shock Remastered, which will be released on PC and Xbox One.

Night Dive Studios has already released System Shock: Enhanced Edition, which lets players with modern operating systems play the original game at higher resolutions. However, System Shock Remastered will revamp the graphics and user interface from the ground up, using the Unity engine. The new trailer, which shows pre-alpha footage, is already looking pretty amazing at this early stage.

System Shock Remastered will be released for the PC and Xbox One sometime in 2017 and Night Dive Studios plans to crowd source funds to finish the game via a future Kickstarter campaign. In addition, Night Dive is working with OtherSide Entertainment on the next all-new game in the series, System Shock 3.

  • I always wanted to play System Shock series but never did. I bought SS2 when it came out but haven't played it. Maybe I should finally do it.
  • It's a great game, try it out.
  • Very cool! I'll be checking this out. Never played system shock but loved it's spiritual successor, Bioshock.
  • Deus Ex & Bioshock are -both- spiritual successors to System Shock. I haven't played Deus Ex yet so can't personally recommend it, but have heard nothing but good things about it :)
  • I've heard great things as well. I just recently tried the one offered for free with Games with Gold, but couldn't get into it too much. I should probably give it another shot, but time is always an issue, lol.
  • From what I gather Human Revolution is supposed to be good, but it's one of those games you'll appreciate far more if you've played the previous games in the series. I personally try to avoid playing sequels first (unless they exist prior to the prequel) and Deus Ex is no different which is why it'll be awhile before I get around to it lol.
  • Human Revolution, if I remember correctly is a prequel to the first two games. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
  • A quick look on Wikipedia confirms you are correct, although what I meant was I prefer playing games in release order rather than chronological order as they tend to flow better that way.
  • Both Bioshock and Deus Ex were 2 of the best games of last gen., hands down. Once you get the swing of the cover mechanics in Deus Ex, you'll be fine. Edit: Human Revolution was my first Deus Ex game, and one of my all time favorites. Never played another.
  • Keep us apprised of the Kickstarter. I am eager to pledge
  • This is awesome! I started playing the original a little while ago as wanted to experience the first 2 games before playing Deus Ex (already a big fan of Bioshock).
    As an achievement ***** I'm tempted to wait until the Xbox release now although I love playing/seeing originals before playing/watching remakes to appreciate then more!
  • Yes! Always wanted to play this.
  • I remember playing the original when it came out. It was a deep, engrossing game, with an interesting engine too.
  • Awesome game for it's time.  Loved it.  Not sure I'll enjoy playing it again though.
  • Yes! Tell them to get the Kickstarter going already so I can throw money at it.
