After the launch of a second demo and so much anticipation, Nightdive Studios has announced the launch date for the System Shock remake.

System Shock is set to launch for the PC on May 30th, 2023. The game is currently available for pre-order. Gamers who pre-order it on PC (via Steam, GOG, or Epic) will get a free copy of System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition. Those interested to sample the game can download the demo on their preferred store front. 

A console version of the game is in the works but no launch date has been given. Fans could expect to hear more about the console version in the future. 

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.
