Now Playing: GS News Update: System Shock Remastered's First Gameplay Footage

The developer says you can "see more" on the System Shock website, though for now it only hosts the YouTube video, description, and a SHODAN that follows your cursor around.

You can read the full video description below:

After 20 years, we are remastering and re-imagining the original System Shock. We will keep the new game true to the classic experience, keeping all the things you loved, while updating the user interface and graphics to use a modern day engine (Unity).

You'll be able to play it for yourself when System Shock Remastered hits Xbox One and PC next year.

Additionally, Night Dive Studios is currently working on the upcoming System Shock 3. The studio revealed last year that it had acquired the rights to the System Shock franchise. It was recently announced that Deus Ex creator Warren Spector had joined the team to work on System Shock 3.

Night Dive Studios is also responsible for the recent Turok remaster and System Shock: Enhanced Edition.
