Did you catch the latest look at Nightdive Studios’ System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition

Dropping last week as a part of DreadXP’s showcase, was the newest look at the remastered System Shock 2.

Shocking again

By now you’re probably quite acquainted with the force of nature that is Nightdive Studios. The indie developer can seemingly do no wrong, with a golden string of remasters to its credit, along with the full remake of one of the most impactful shooters of all time in this past summer’s System Shock. And it’s under that same series that the company will be serving up its next release, a remaster of the classic System Shock 2.

The 1999 FPS will be making its way back to the PC, and also hitting consoles for the first time with PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. While all of that will be taking place some time “in the near future”, we got our first look at gameplay during the DreadXP Indie Horror Showcase last week.

Whether you’re a fan already, or just like good horror FPS’, it’s kind tough not to get psyched about it.

Set 42 years after the events of the first System Shock, SHODAN and her army of merciless mutants infest the starship Von Braun. Players embody a soldier who awakes from cryo-sleep with cybernetic implants grafted to his flesh. As he sets out to unravel the horrifying mystery of the derelict starship, he’ll need to hone his upgradable soldier skills and utilize powerful weapons and paranormal psionic abilities to survive the monstrous creations of SHODAN — and endure her narcissistic god complex. 

Nightdive Studios press release

As you can see there, System Shock 2 Enhanced Edition has fully remastered visuals, with promised “up to 4K 120 FPS support” across the board and on all platforms. And while the PC version alone will have mod support, all versions will also serve up controller support, platform-specific trophies/achievements, and co-op multiplayer.

Again, there’s no release date for any of that just yet though, so stay tuned. Shodan’ will be back ‘s return doesn’t seem too far off now…
