Night Dive Studios announced that an Enhanced Edition of System Shock, the breakthrough FPS/RPG hybrid – one of the most influential video games ever produced, is now available on GOG.
Stephen Kick, CEO of Night Dive Studios, said:
“With System Shock: Enhanced Edition, we’re implementing game-changing improvements, including mouselook, widescreen, and a high resolution display mode. The classic game has never been more accessible to a modern audience.”
The re-release supports resolutions up to 1024x768 (compared to the original 640x480), and a native 854x480 widescreen mode. This is a bit underwhelming as we’d hoped for proper 1080p support, and to be honest I don’t see why the available options are only up to 1024x768..
Gameplay was also streamlined with a toggleable mouselook mode, including more intuitive inventory and item management. Combined with assorted bug-fixes and remappable controls, System Shock is now truly enhanced.
In order to celebrate this announcement, Night Dive Studios has also released a new trailer for System Shock: Enhanced Edition that can be viewed below.
