System Shock Has Gone Gold, Will Release Later This Month

Nightdive Studio’s remake of the acclaimed sci-fi shooter System Shock has officially gone gold and is set to release at the end of the month.

Nightdive broke the news on their official Twitter account and took the time to thank fans for their support saying “On behalf of the #nightdivestudios team and all of our partners, THANK YOU to the fans for supporting us throughout the game’s development”. The further announcement that the game will be hitting its May 30 release date is sure to come as welcome news to fans.

There was a fair amount of disappointment earlier in the year when Nightdive announced that the PC release date of System Shoch would be pushed back from March to May. Delays are no strangers to us at this stage but the possibility of a later release date was always niggling at the back of our minds. The studio has spoken publically about its high standards for the game and it looks like it’s finally at a stage where it can meet player expectations.

The System Shock remake started as a Kickstarter project in 2016 and has been subject to several delays. The game has allegedly been playable from start to finish since 2022 according to Nightdive but the studio stated their intention to release the game in the best state possible.

The game is essentially a shot-for-shot remake of the original System Shock with enhanced graphics, updated controls, and a completely new interface. Players will also be able to encounter new and original enemies as well as brand-new hacking mechanics.

System Shock is widely recognized as one of the defining titles that truly paved the way for the FPS genre. Fans have been eager to once again brave Citadel Station and survive the AI antagonist SHODAN. Thankfully, there’s not too much longer to wait.
