System Shock Remastered Edition – New Demo and Gameplay Footage

With Nightdive Studios looking to finally release their remaster of the original System Shock in March 2023, the project’s latest Kickstarter update directs us to the game’s Steam page where we can now download a new demo as part of the ongoing Steam Next Fest. The update also lets us know that the game’s supporters will be getting access to a new Backer Beta near the end of the month, and that the printed manual is just about ready to be shipped.

And if you’d like to experience the new demo without actually playing it, you might want to watch this GameSpot video:
