In the far-off year of 2072, some bad stuff is going down at Citadel Station. Nearly 30 years after the original System Shock was released, PC gamers are being treated to a remake of the classic cyberpunk adventure. Although, if you backed the remakes crowdfunding campaign, you probably hoped it would have arrived a little sooner.

According to Ars Technica, it has been seven years since the Kickstarter project was successfully funded. We’re also just now learning that the game’s expected release date is May 30th. System Shock only missed its original launch date of 2017 by about six years. It’s all good. No worries. Unless the game gets bumped again.

If that happens, you can always get the demo and drown your sorrows that way. Yes, System Shock’s demo is still available on Steam.

The full game can be pre-purchased for $39.99. Check out the PC requirements below:


    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit only)

    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 670 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or better

System Shock is the fully fledged remake of the ground breaking original from 1994, combining cult gameplay with all-new HD visuals, updated controls, an overhauled interface and all-new sounds & music; it even has the original voice actor of SHODAN, one of gaming’s most iconic villains. Witness the rebirth of one of the greatest and most influential games ever created.

The only complaint I ever had about System Shock was the clunky user interface. Although that is still present in the remake, it’s no longer blocking half of the screen. Instead, it now only takes up a quarter of it.
