And, I don't know... if you've read some of the news of late about AIs and transcendent intelligence and humans being sympathetic to that and cover ups and a new age dawning, then maybe, just maybe, this game -- a "fully-fledged remake" of the classic System Shock -- might be a bit too on-the-nose.
What the rest of us can do, however, is jump for joy at both a classic being brought back to life (by a super-competent studio) and for yet another sci-fi horror (re)entering the fray.
Prime Matter and Nightdive Studios have teamed up with SHODAN – the psychotic AI controlling Citadel Station to reshape humanity in a fusion of flesh and steel to reveal a fantastic new gameplay trailer for System Shock.
The game is a fully-fledged remake of the ground breaking original from 1994, combining the cult gameplay with all-new HD visuals, updated controls, an overhauled interface and all-new sounds & music.
The developers – Nightdive Studios – worked closely with many of the members of the original System Shock team, including the voice of SHODAN — Terri Brosius — ensuring the remake stays true to its origins while winning over newcomers to the title too.
Hackers Players are reminded that they are worthless insects will need to use a combination of stealth, cunning and futuristic weaponry to make their way through Citadel Station's all-new areas, traps, puzzles and secrets to reach SHODAN.
Facing them is an army of hostile and mutated creatures – created and controlled by SHODAN herself – which hackers players will need to either fight or avoid to survive.
The game is out this year and is available now to pre-order from the Epic Game Store, GOG and Steam and will also be coming to both sets of console, current and next-gen. No release date has been revealed, only that it will be out this year.
