The new System Shock is looking quite impressive with the latest artwork

Posted by , | Views: 5,912

System Shock, the remake coming eventually from Nightdive Studios continues along in development and it's looking impressive.

In their latest Kickstarter update, they showed off what they say is the "final art" after they previously showed the game using "temporary art". I have to admit, while this is only a small slice of what's to come, from the footage it certainly seems like it will have a decent atmosphere to it.

I missed their last few updates, since this is one game I am trying not to spoil too much from seeing all the bits and pieces start to come together now.

They put out a few more updates since I last took a look, showing off more interesting parts of their final art like these:

I'm very interested in seeing the final game, Nightdive Studios have done some pretty good work reviving older games and System Shock is clearly a labour of love for them. It's using Unreal Engine, so I do hope they're getting plenty of Linux testing done closer to release since many developers have had issue with it.

There's no current date for the final release, will keep you posted.

My wrapper for the GOG version of System Shock 2 uses the latest version, and I also made a wrapper for System Shock: Enhanced Edition as a temporary solution until they get the port ready.

Looks very similar to their first demo they released.

Well, let's just hope they don't pull a Bloodstained or a Phoenix Point.

Good to see my 30usd isn't going to be a waste, hopefully. Things could still go wrong regardless of how good it looks so far.

Impressive how after so many years they still commit fixes to the game. I wasn't expecting that.
The Linux delay is not so impressive though...

Yep and thats why i dont really like Nightdive Studios right now. First the Update now the SS1 Port. On GOG there is still no Linux Version for Turok 2 (which may not be Nightdives fault but still). Just get in contact with an Linux Studio or someone who knows what he is doing. like Asypr, Feral or Icculus. Like come on Nightdive.
