System Shock Remake: Shodan is back. Prime Matter and Nightdive Studios have partnered to relaunch the original sci-fi adventure in reboot form. Prime Matter, Koch Media’s new publishing label, has announced with Nightdive Studios a partnership for the launch of the remake of System Shock, the classic sci-fi adventure originally released in 1994. The publishing agreement includes the global distribution of the video game in consoles and PC next year 2022.
This revival will maintain a first-person perspective and serve as an opportunity for new fans and classic lovers alike to rediscover the myth with new high-definition visuals, updated controls, a revamped interface, and remastered music.
