To celebrate Steam Next Fest and in preparation for its March release, Nightdive Studios has announced that they have released a second demo for their upcoming remake of System Shock.
Now available on Steam, this demo gives fans a look at the progression of the System Shock remake. Taking the lessons learned from the previous demo, the end results are a series of improvements in preparations for the launch. The demo allows players to experience the opening section with no restrictions.
System Shock is a cyberpunk-themed horror RPG that was originally released on the PC back in 1994. The story follows a hacker aboard the Citadel Station who is enticed to hack SHODAN (the station’s AI system). However; when its ethical constraints are removed, the AI unleashes a wave of terror upon the station.
It has been hailed as a video game pioneer for its story and the many gameplay mechanics it introduced. Its success was followed by a sequel that has also been equally praised and influential.
