The System Shock remake was originally supposed to launch in March, but will instead be releasing two months later for PC users, on May 30th. According to the game’s publisher, Plaion, the March launch just wasn’t obtainable, hence the delay.
“We had hoped to bring the game to market by the end of March,” Plaion stated on the System Shock’s Steam page. “But that turned out to be just beyond our reach. We are after all merely human, unlike Shodan!”
The remake will include upgraded visuals, enhanced music, and new enemies to take down. There will also be an overhauled hacking system and even a dismemberment system, inspired by the likes of Dead Space gameplay.
Developer Nightdive Studios will also be releasing System Shock on console, for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One at a later time. Of course, the new release date for PC brings System Shock against some tough competition. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is coming out on May 26th, with Street Fighter 6 launching on June 2nd, followed lastly by Diablo IV releasing on June 6th.
