System Shock, a true classic that's currently going through a reboot from Nightdive Studios has released a new preview trailer and it's weirdly chilled.
The chilled atmosphere comes from their choice of music. It's just thoroughly weird but also somewhat amusing. Show off a bunch of gameplay, Nightdive placed elevator music over the top and it makes for a thoroughly odd experience. Take a look below:
We don't have an exact date for it and their recent Alpha demos have been Windows-only but it's due out proper sometime this year. This follows quite a few delays between switching game engine, a pause in development to refocus and more. Linux support is confirmed, and was actually a stretch goal during the original Kickstarter campaign back in 2016. Their campaign finished with a $1,350,700 total against the $900,000 initial goal with the Linux (and macOS) version being set at $1.1M.
On the subject of System Shock: it was getting a third entry from OtherSide Entertainment that was entirely unrelated to this reboot. System Shock 3 has since moved over to Tencent (source) so any Linux version from that is likely now not happening if System Shock 3 ever appears.
