Escape The Research Lab In A New System Shock Remake Trailer

Nightdive studios dropped a new System Shock Remake trailer over the weekend touring a completely redeveloped research lab.

Fans of the classic 1994 System Shock will no doubt be aware that Nightdive Studios, the team that brought Turok back to life, are busy rebuilding System Shock. Now, Nightdive have given us an idea what to expect with a full 7-minute preview of the game’s research lab. The new trailer hit YouTube on Friday and gives potential players a look at the leap in performance you can expect.

Just like Final Fantasy 7 Remake, this reincarnation of the original is not a republished old school pixel art escapade. Instead, the new System Shock will hit PC in a fully reformatted incarnation. Players can expect the same story but with updated HD visuals, new controls, new secret corridors, and a hacking system that is completely reworked. The new gameplay trailer gives us a glimpse of this new coat of paint. Despite the new look, the narrative behind this tale is unlikely to change. Players will till find themselves waking after a six month healing coma aboard Citadel Station, TriOptimum’s premier research facility. This time won’t be any different either. You’ll still need to battle your way through nightmarish mutants, killer cyborgs, and an AI that doesn’t much likely you having a pulse.

You can check out the System Shock research lab above, and find out more about the remake over on the official Nightdive website now. Anybody picking up this game on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Game Store will have to shell out $44.95 but will get System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition for free. When that lands too.
