If you act fast, you can preorder the System Shock remake on PC for $34 (normally $40) through Fanatical. As an added bonus, all preorders include a code for System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition on PC. The 15% preorder discount ends at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET on February 17.
Along with the two games, you also get a coupon code for 5% off a future purchase at Fanatical.
Both the System Shock remake and System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition are currently in development by Nightdive Studios. The System Shock remake is a ground-up recreation of the original 1994 sci-fi RPG featuring fully-3D graphics, modernized controls, and more. Developer Nightdive Studios have been working diligently on the remake since 2015, and it’s finally set to launch in March. Check out our hands-on impressions of the latest System Shock Remake demo for more info on the game.
Technically, the System Shock remake doesn’t have a definite release date; the Fanatical listing says preorder codes will be delivered “before March 31, 2023,” and the Steam store page lists the release date as “March 2023.” This preorder deal makes it seem they’ll hit their window. So, barring any last-minute delays, it should arrive on PC within the next few weeks.
The System Shock remake will also launch for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One, but it’s unclear if the console versions will arrive in March as well, or at a later date.
On the other hand, the System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition is an upgraded PC port of the original System Shock 2 from 1999. It retains the original game’s gameplay, level designs, and graphics engine, though with higher fidelity textures and modern display options, plus integrated mod support and VR compatibility. There is currently no release date for System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition, but this preorder deal is a great way to secure your copy so you can play once its available on PC.
