Nightdive’s System Shock remake arrives for consoles today

SHODAN has arrived to assimilate Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Well, if you buy a copy of System Shock that is.

Putting on another SHO

Released in 2023, Nightdive Studios’ remake of the 90s classic System Shock was met with quite a bit of positivity. The FPS was celebrated by both critics and fans, for its attention to detail and faithful retelling of the original story, but with a stunning and modern coat of paint. Like its forebear though, what it did not have, was a console edition.

Well, you can check that one off of the board as of today, as the port is complete and out right now for Xbox and PlayStation consoles. And if the last time you played the PC version was last year, you’ll find something new with the console edition.

Like the current state of the PC’s System Shock, all console editions include the latest updates. If you’re unaware, those deliver “a revised ending, an optional female hacker protagonist, an easy mission difficulty mode waypoint system, enhanced enemy encounters (including new attacks and behaviours) and updated game balancing. “

“For the first time ever, the incredible world of System Shock is available to console gamers,” said Stephen Kick, CEO of Nightdive Studios. “We’re so excited to introduce our take on this pioneering piece of gaming history to a whole new audience.”

On top of the updates, the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of System Shock offer up 4K visuals, in 60fps. And being that we’re talking about consoles, you better believe that the game no sports “redesigned” controls to fully support gamepads. So if you grab a copy of the game for your favorite platform, you should be in for a nicely-tailored experience.

In addition to a digital drop today too, System Shock is also out physically. So feel free to add to that library.
