Nightdive releases a System Shock Remaster Demo for Linux, which is currently available to download via Steam. 

System Shock's Remake was successfully Kickstarted over a week ago, bringing in it's $900,000 funding goal well before the end of the game's Kickstarter campaign. Right now the game has raised over $1,000,000, with 10 days left to raise the $1.1 Million stretch goal where the developers will create a Linux and iOS version of the game. 

With this Kickstarter Nightdive Studios will create a complete remake of the 1994 classic, bringing one of the first ever 3D games into the modern era with modern graphics while maintaining the game's iconic gameplay and story.  

 

       System Shock is a complete remake of the genre-defining classic from 1994, rebuilt from the ground up with the Unity Engine.

 

 

 

Right now there is a playable demo available for the System Shock's Remake on SteamGOG and the Humble Store, giving potential backers the chance to play a demo version of the game before putting any money down. The new demo for the Linux version of the game is only available on Steam. 

Below are the PC system requirements for System Shocks playable demo, though the developers have stated that they plan to reduce the system requirements for the final release. On Steam the same system requirements are listed for both the Windows and Linux versions of the game, though performance differences are expected. 

 

MINIMUM:

    • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions) 
    • Processor: Intel Core i5-2400/AMD FX-8320 or better 
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM 
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 670 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or better 
    • DirectX: Version 11 
    • Storage: 2 GB available space

 

RECOMMENDED:

    • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions) 
    • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770/AMD FX-8350 or better 
    • Memory: 16 GB RAM 
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 970 4GB/AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB or better 
    • DirectX: Version 11 
    • Storage: 2 GB available space

 

System Shock's remaster is expected to release in late 2016 for Windows PC and Xbox One, with a Linux and Mac OS version planned  if they reach their funding stretch goal of $1.1 Million.
