Ah, System Shock. The influential horror game that spawned a marvelous sequel, and two spiritual sucessors, Bioshock and Deus Ex. The very idea of a remaster can make one salivate.
Dive Studios released a tantalizing pre-alpha gameplay trailer, as seen below.
Well, consider us drooling.
The gameplay shows that this is no simple remake -- System Shock looks better than ever, and SHODAN is still her terrifying old self. The original artist has signed on again to make sure this atmospheric and iconic game doesn't lose any of its lustre.
The game is slated for a release in 2017, with some minor alterations to make it more appeasing to modern gamers. The plot will remain unchanged, and no one could be happier about it than us.
