System Shock is a first-person action-adventure game with a bit of horror produced by Nightdive Studios and scheduled to arrive on August 31 this year, for PC, Linux, Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game is a remake of the 1994 version, produced by Looking Glass Studios, and set in the year 2072, where you, a hacker, were caught trying to access the confidential files of Citadel Station, a space station run by TriOptimum Corporation. Being taken there and in the presence of a megacorporation executive, you receive an offer you cannot refuse: be cleared of all charges in exchange for your services. You must explore the entire station, infested with dangerous mutants and cyborgs, all with the aim of hacking SHODAN, a powerful and fearsome artificial intelligence that has taken control of the place.
The game has evolved a lot compared to its original version. The graphics are impressive, but still retain the essence present in the 1994 version. You have an entire environment to explore, collect information, items and weapons, in addition to facing various enemies whose weakness depends on the weapon used against them. Cyberspace has also evolved, presenting gameplay and movement more similar to Descent or Forsaken than in the original version.
The soundtrack, unlike the original version, is more ambient, atmospheric, capturing the climate of tension at every moment, and changing as the tension increases. The puzzles, used to control doors, bridges and other things, are very fun and can even be a challenge, depending on the grade you choose before starting the game.
