This may come as a shock to some fans of the series seeing as the reboot of the original game has yet launched. With that latest update for the 1994 release just posted last week, Nightdive isn’t running out of steam anytime soon. According to the Twitter post, System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition is “coming soon,” and that means they’ve already put in the hours to get this out to fans.
Does the title sound familiar, but you’re not quite sure why? The System Shock series began with the original launch in 1994, which was followed by a sequel in 1999. It’s a first-person, horror RPG developed by Irrational Games and Looking Glass Studios. System Shock 2 was a critically-acclaimed video game, especially for its time and renown for its horrifying yet simultaneously gratifying role-playing experience.
