The time has come, puny insects. The award-winning System Shock remake, based on the iconic 1994 sci-fi action game, is available now worldwide on consoles. 

Nightdive Studios’ stunningly faithful recreation of the classic shooter/immersive sim was released to critical acclaim in 2023 for PC.  

Now, console players can go toe-to-toe with SHODAN — the original rogue AI with evil intent — on PlayStation 4|5 and Xbox One and Series X|S as they explore the dark depths of Citadel Station and singlehandedly try and save Earth from destruction.  

The System Shock remake combines the gameplay of the original title with all-new HD visuals, updated controls, an overhauled interface and all-new sounds and music.
