The upcoming System Shock reboot from Nightdive Studios has seen quite a few ups and downs over the years since the Kickstarter but it's coming together now.
With the recent Realms Deep event, many upcoming shooters of all sorts were shown off. Nightdive was involved in this, and decided to show off their remake of the Cyberspace feature. In the original this was a 3D space you could sort-of fly around in, interact with objects and collect things. In the upcoming reboot, it keeps the same basic style but with obvious modern improvements that ends up also looking a bit like Descent. Check it out:
On top of that, they also showed off another video diving a bit further into the gore that you will find in System Shock with the dismemberment feature. It's not pretty, obviously, so a fair warning ahead that there's some blood. What's interesting though is this video goes into more of the technical details, and how they can use this system for robotic characters too with destruction. The result is quite impressive.
How high are your hopes for this? I've tried to keep my own in check but all the latest stuff they're showing has been rather great. It has so much to live up to though, can it? Considering the original went on to inspire many great games and still does today it's going to be tough.
