System Shock remake due to release in March

By - | Views: 25,962

Nightdive Studios have now set a launch window for System Shock, with it planned to release in March. That's if it doesn't see yet another delay.

Shared in an update on Kickstarter, they said: "After our return from Gamescom we’ve been hesitant to share anything so as not to spoil any remaining surprises we have in store. However, we’ve picked a few last things to share before our quickly approaching launch window of March, 2023.".

Not the first time of course they've announced something, which they touched on and mentioned how the scope and scale of it has changed and with Prime Matter joining them as publisher it's helped them to focus on  "quality-of-life improvements, bug fixing, and localization support" which are the last steps towards the release. They also said they're "incredibly proud" of what they've done.

In the post they also shared a few more small clips and art.

This was the last full proper teaser from 6 months ago:

As far as I can see, they've still been pretty silent about the Native Linux support that was mentioned on the original crowdfunding campaign. A lot has changed since then though. Hopefully it will work okay in Proton if they're no longer doing that.

You can follow it on GOG and Steam

It's on my wishlist since it entered the store, and I'd really love to buy. But only native Linux for me, else no deal.....

No, they promised native Linux support, nothing less is acceptable. Video game development is a business, not charity. "We promised you apple tart but decided to not bother, here take an apple instead and don't cry" should never be the norm.

Quoting: TheRiddickIt'll probably work well on Steam Deck also.

There's demo available, it works perfectly well (but only via Proton for now, native Linux version downloads 5 bytes and that's all)

March?

Do they super pinky swear no backsies for realzies this time trudat nocap?

One hundred! One hundred!

In all seriousness, while I do love a good hype-choo train ride I think fan expectations are metacritic 98 and their delivery will be duke nukem infinite aka metacritic 65-75.

We are also boned with #3 bigtime by being picked up by CCP tencent so in that regard SS3 besides being canceled is dead to me in the same way EA has the hand of shitazz touch.

I'll pour one out to SS1 devs exceeding my expectations and hope the pandemic curse which even reached Croteam is no problem, but if their ability to manage time is any indicator I am pessimistic at best -- I really wish Valve owned the IP and handed it off to Portal devs as GlaDOS is based on Shodan.

Looking forward to it. I backed it a long time ago on Kickstarter.
