For the fans waiting for the System Shock Remake to release, good news has arrived. You can get a taste of the gameplay via the freshly launched Alpha Demo on PC.
Here’s an overview of the System Shock Remake Demo (via Nightdive Studios):
After two decades, Nightdive Studios is rebooting and re-imagining the original System Shock. We will keep the new game true to the classic experience, keeping all the things you loved while giving today’s gamers the modern look and feel expected from a AAA title.
This Alpha Demo will give you a brief preview of the game. Please keep in mind this is a very early demo, so performance, content, etc. is not final.
With the help of members of the original team, including the original Voice Actor of SHODAN, Terri Brosius, Citadel Station has never been more immersive or terrifying!
You’re a renowned hacker, the most notorious cyberspace thief in the corporate world. Caught during a risky break-in, you become indentured to a greedy TriOptimum executive. After six months in a healing coma, you awaken to the twisted aftermath of a terrible disaster. Where are the surgeons? Why is the station in such disrepair? Slowly, the chilling realization that something is very wrong creeps over you. Once a prime corporate research facility, Citadel Station now teems with mindless cyborgs, robots and terribly mutated beings, all programmed to serve SHODAN, a ruthless A.I. There’s scarcely time to think before it unleashes the first terror…
To commemorate the release of the Alpha Demo, Nightdive Studios will do a full live stream of the demo and a 30-minute Q&A on Shacknews’ Twitch channel starting at 9:00 am PST | 12:00 pm EST. The System Shock demo is available for free on their GOG page.
