The long awaited remake of the classic System Shock creeps ever-closer. Prime Matter and Nightdive Studios have announced that game has ‘gone gold’. This term refers to the fact that the game is now content complete, with only final QA testing remaining before launch.

And with that comes the official System Shock remake release date. In 21 days, the game will launch digitally for Windows PC. It will be available via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store on 30th May, 2023, at 08:00 PDT/17:00 CEST.

In System Shock, a legion of hostile and mutated creatures await the player. Created and controlled by the delightfully villainous SHODAN herself, players must make their way through Citadel Station’s all-new areas, flexing their puzzle-solving skills and hacking prowess to reach new sectors of the station.

Players will also encounter traps, puzzles and secrets in their pursuit of defeating SHODAN once and for all. A combination of stealth, cunning, and futuristic weaponry will be required to survive.

The System Shock remake combines the cult gameplay of the iconic original game with all-new HD visuals. Updated controls, an overhauled interface, and all-new sounds and music also feature. Never-before-seen enemies, quality-of-life gameplay tweaks. A revamped hacking system, and visceral new combat options featuring a brutal dismemberment system also await players new and old.

Nightdive Studios worked closely with many of the members of the original System Shock team. These include the voice of SHODAN, Terri Brosius.

The PC edition of System Shock is available to pre-order and includes a free copy of the upcoming System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition for all early buyers. Console editions of System Shock will release on PlayStation 4|5 and Xbox One and Series X|S in due course; more details will be shared in the future.
