The System Shock Remake Finally Has A Console Release Date

On more systems than ever!

The modern remake of System Shock, which first launched on PC last year, is finally headed to consoles soon with a release date locked in of May 21st for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

System Shock is a complete remake of the ground-breaking 1994 title, that sports faithful but gorgeous HD visuals, updated controls, a reworked interface along with new audio and music, and even features the original voice actor of SHODAN, one of gaming’s most iconic villains.

Not only will the game be headed to new platforms, but Nightdive Studios has also revealed that an expanded ending, a new female hacker protagonist, and more are also on the way in the 1.2 update for the game, which is also coming to PC versions of the game “in the near future.”

“Get ready to descend into the terrifying depths of Citadel Station in System Shock, the critically acclaimed sci-fi horror classic, coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Brace yourself for a heart-pounding adventure where you’ll face mutated monstrosities, hack your way through deadly puzzles, and unravel the dark secrets of a sinister AI.” – Prime Matter/Nightdive Studios.

We gave the initial PC release of the System Shock remake a 7.5/10 in our review last year, with Brodie saying, “After three decades, System Shock still serves up a sci-fi banquet complete with one of the greatest antagonists and features that revolutionised a genre. Classic games are left open to classic stumbling blocks, however, as some of the design shows considerable depreciation.”

You can wishlist the game right now on both the PlayStation Store and Xbox Store, so find the links below:
