In honor of the latest Steam Next Fest, Nightdive Studios and publisher Prime Matter have released a brand new demo for System Shock today, which gives fans a whole new look at the exciting title coming in March.

The remake of the genre-defining 1994 classic System Shock has been on the radar of fans for some time now, and Nightdive has worked tirelessly to breathe new life into the game with a full-fledged — and absolutely stunning — remake that’ll shine on modern hardware. 

The first thing fans will notice is a brand-new introduction sequence for the game; this sets the mood and stage for what’s to come once they arrive at Citadel Station. Additionally, the demo offers a glimpse as to what life was like as a denizen of 2072 New Atlanta. 

As they explore Citadel, fans will discover that the halls of the Medical level are now littered with debris and clutter, alongside a few new enemies eager to make their acquaintance! Existing enemies from the original demo are smarter and sound better than ever now thanks to an overhaul of AI and audio systems! Gib happy fans of old-school shooters will also notice that enemies are particularly juicy thanks to new dismemberment tech.

There are also some new machines found across the level: Vending Machines to satiate the thirstiest of Hackers, Recycling Stations to earn some extra cred, Transdermal Dispensers for those who need a pick-me-up, and a mysterious Mod-Kit station. The new demo additionally adds improved controller support.

System Shock releases in March 2023 and is available for pre-order on SteamGOG, and the Epic Games Store for $39.99 USD, and includes a free copy of the upcoming System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition for all early buyers. System Shock will also release for Xbox One and Series S|X and PlayStation 4|5. The new Steam Next Fest demo is available to download now!
