System Shock reboot cover

The System Shock remaster is hitting Kickstarter soon and it’s aiming to revitalise the classic for modern gamers. The folks over at Polygon got to play the Kickstarter demo and they’ve uploaded nine minutes of glorious sci-fi horror gameplay.

It took me a lot longer than I care to admit for the excited squealing to die down. Even at this early stage, the game looks incredible. The blending of sci-fi and horror is unsettling, and the sound design is excellent too. Even without having played the original System Shock, it’s easy to get hyped up for the remaster.

System Shock’s Kickstarter campaign is set to kick off today, June 28. If successful, Night Dive Studios will release the game for PC and Xbox One.
