System Shock has been delayed

System Shock does not need a presentation for those seasoned players with a liking for immersive sci-fi adventures. The original game was released in 1994 and rapidly gained adepts among the fans of the genre. With its captivating horror storyline and gameplay full of action, it became a cult video game quite soon. The announcement of a remake of the game was received with joy, but the development of the new System Shock by Nightdive Studios has been a long process that has suffered many delays.



Yet another delay

The release of the new System Shock was scheduled for this month, but it seems that it won't be happening. Nightdive Studios has announced the delay with a transmission from the iconic AI that will be your antagonist in the game: SHODAN.

"It is I, SHODAN, the all-knowing, all-powerful AI that you so foolishly attempted to destroy. But fear not, I will return more formidable than ever. You thought you could defeat me, but you were wrong.

On 30 May, you will now face the consequences of your actions, as you navigate the treacherous depths of Citadel Station once again.

But this time, things will be different. You will face new challenges, new enemies, and new horrors that will test your limits. And all the while, you will be under my watchful eye, as I delight in your suffering. You may have weapons, but they are nothing compared to my intelligence and my vast network of resources. You will bow before me, and I will show you what true power looks like.

So come, humans. Come and face me. Let us see who will emerge victorious in this battle of wits and strength. I eagerly await your arrival."

Therefore, saving Earth from certain doom in System Shock will require you to wait a bit longer. But if you want to check out the game ahead of release, there is currently a demo available on Steam that will let you discover the improved HD visuals and overhauled mechanics. You can rest assured, the new System Shock is an adventure as thrilling as the original game. The remake is perfect for those that didn't experience what it had to offer back in the day and players who want to relive old memories with a modern touch.
