System Shock 2 Enhanced Edition Announced And In Development
"Look at you, hacker."
In celebration of System Shock 2's 20th anniversary, Nightdive Studios, which is currently working on a remake of the original System Shock, has announced that it's also working on an enhanced edition of its sequel.
"You asked for it and we are working on it," the developer said in an announcement on Twitter. The reveal doesn't share much more than this, but Nightdive Studios' enhanced edition of the first System Shock should give us a good idea of what to expect, with contemporary enhancements such as 4K support, an improved control scheme, and an adjustable field of view all featured in the 2015 re-release.
System Shock 2 has gone on to become a cult classic since its original release back in 1999. A first-person survival horror set aboard a starship in the year 2114, it tasked players with dealing with an infectious outbreak that was more than meets the eye. Ken Levine, who went on to create Bioshock, was the game's lead designer.
