Today’s trailer opened with a voiceover from ther antagonist SHODAN breaking the fourth wall by introducing the trailer to the audience. What followed was new footage of System Shock’s first-person gameplay, showcasing shooting, electric swordplay, and some puzzles on the colorful cyberpunk Citadel space station.
The original System Shock released on PC in 1994. It’s a horror game set on a spacestation in 2072 called Citadel Station, and players control a hacker tasked with ruining the plans of a rogue AI named SHODAN. No release date for the remake was given, but director of business development Larry Kuperman said development is “largely complete.”
“You can play through it from beginning to end, all weapons and enemies are in place and working,” Kuperman said. “What remains to be done is what is termed ‘polish.’ Our goal is that the release version is as close to perfection as possible.”
