System Shock Remake also coming to PS4
The team have announced that the game will now also be coming to PS4. While a Sony platform was not part of any of the project’s initial stretch goals, Nightdive describe this latest announcement as “a thank you to our backers that put their faith in us.” The update was accompanied by the below pack-shot of the PS4 iteration.
System Shock hit Kickstarter last month with a crowdfunding goal of $900,000. Backers have since pledged more than $1 million at time of writing, unlocking a new tier and closed beta access to those who put up $50 or more. The game is targeting a December 2017 launch, according to the campaign page.
Even a superlative like “overwhelming” in regards to fan support may be an understatement. Nightdive’s Kickstarter has raised over $1 million, and there’s still a week left to go. System Shock will be a full remake of the 1994 original, an FPS/RPG hybrid that puts players in the shoes of a hacker trying to thwart the plans of a rogue AI named SHODAN, also the antagonist of the remake.
Check out the Trailer:
“After we saw the overwhelming demand for PS4, we reshuffled our priorities and focused on talking to Sony about making that happen. After a few weeks and lotttts of emails, we are officially on track for bringing System Shock to the PS4! No stretch goal for it. We’re adding it in as a thank you to our backers that put their faith in us.”
