Publisher Prime Matter and developer Nightdive Studios announced the System Shock remake has gone gold ahead of release this month.

The news that the System Shock remake went gold means the game has reached gold master status, meaning the game’s development and code is finalized and ready for distribution.

In case you missed it – we did a recently big hands-on preview for the remake both in writing and video – check that out here.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

System Shock is the fully fledged remake of the ground breaking original from 1994, combining cult gameplay with all-new HD visuals, updated controls, an overhauled interface and all-new sounds & music; it even has the original voice actor of SHODAN, one of gaming’s most iconic villains. Witness the rebirth of one of the greatest and most influential games ever created.


Meet SHODAN. The psychotic AI has taken control of Citadel Station and turned the crew into an army of cyborgs and mutants; She now plans to do the same to Earth. You must explore and battle your way through the depths of a space station gone to hell. Stop SHODAN and avert humanity’s destruction.HER TERMINATION IS OUR SALVATION

Become fully immersed: shoot, brawl, crawl, climb, leap and think your way through Citadel Station.
