21 Years Later, System Shock Gets PC Enhanced Edition
Players can look forward to better resolution and new features.
1994's System Shock, the FPS with RPG elements designed by a team at Looking Glass that included Ken Levine (who went on to make BioShock), is coming back with a new, enhanced version for PC. Restoration company Night Dive Studios, which is also working on the updated versions of Turok and Turok 2, developed System Shock: Enhanced Edition, which is available now through The Witcher developer CD Projekt's GOG.com.
Some of the new features included with the Enhanced Edition include mouselook and widescreen (854x480). The game also supports resolutions up to 1024x768, which is much better than the original 640x480. In addition, players can look forward to a "more intuitive" inventory and item management system, as well as remappable controls and a variety of bug fixes.
System Shock: Enhanced Edition is available today from GOG for $8, a 20 percent discount. A bundle that includes the Enhanced Edition and sequel System Shock 2 is also available at a 20 percent markdown ($18). As with all games sold on GOG, there is no DRM whatsoever. The discount runs through September 29.
