Those hackers at Night Dive Studios have done it again, by re-releasing the original System Shock with a number of updates to make it work on modern PCs.
In a lot of ways, this re-release – titled System Shock: Enhanced Edition – looks a bit like the old System Shock Portable fan-made re-release, in terms of things it adds and fixes. Here, for instance, you’ve got support for up to 1024×768 resolution, or 854×480 widescreen mode. Mouselook support has been added, along with remappable keys (and three different profiles depending on your handed-ness), in addition to the usual truckload of bugfixes.
If you fancy picking it up (and, while I can’t speak to its quality, the original System Shock is a fantastic game) you can do so on GOG now for $7.99. It’s normally $9.99, but it’s dropped a couple of dollars for launch.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
