System Shock is turning into a live-action present


As in the event that they weren’t busy sufficient remaking System Shock, Nightdive Studio have introduced plans for a live-action net TV collection primarily based on Trying Glass’s sci-fi FPS. It would be headed to Binge, an upcoming gaming-focused streaming platform which additionally has plans for a Driver collection. Yeah yeah, however who’s gonna play Shodan?

The announcement is imprecise, merely saying that the present can be “a live-action collection primarily based on the critically acclaimed System Shock franchise”. That would come out in many various shapes. The producer is Binge’s Allan Ungar, who’s finest identified for steering and co-writing that live-action Uncharted fan movie with Nathan Fillion. However yeah, appears they’re speaking System Shock 1 particularly.

“I’ve all the time believed {that a} live-action adaptation of System Shock can be the proper medium to retell the harrowing story of Citadel station and its rogue AI that topics the crew to unimaginable horror,” Nighdive CEO Stephen Kick mentioned. “We’re very excited to see the gifted group at Binge convey System Shock to life in horrifyingly actual and new methods.

SS2’s Protocol Droids are terrifyingly useful, saying issues like “I am afraid I am unable to show you how to in case you disguise” earlier than exploding in your face.

System Shock is about on an area station sooner or later, the place an AI cyberbabe named Shodan has taken over, murdered or mutated the crew, and plots to devastate Earth so she will be able to turn into a god. She returns in a sequel together with her needs granted (nicely, in a ‘withered psionic monkey paw’ manner), having turn into god to a species of offended meat which grows past her management. We arrive on a spaceship post-disaster then, by way of exploration and audiologs, see and listen to how her affect and an infection unfold, how conspiracy and paranoia grew, how terror and horror unfold, after which MEAT! IT’S MEAT! SO MUCH MEAT! God, I like System Shock 2 a lot.

No phrase on when the present would arrive. Binge is because of launch in 2022, a minimum of. Final month, Ubisoft introduced that they are doing a Binge present primarily based on Driver, the stunty driving recreation about an undercover cop. Binge are additionally planning a present with YouTuber “El Rubius”, then their lineup past that’s mainly a thriller.

A System Shock present can be high-quality and all however I will be ready for SS2, when the sexual pressure reaches downright harmful ranges. I wish to watch an actor’s face twist and switch as they agonise over the massive query: are you attractive sufficient for Shodan to merge meatspace with our on-line world to make her joyful?

Nightdive had been, as just lately as February, planning to launch the System Shock remake in “late summer season”. Properly, it is autumn now, and no date but. You possibly can nonetheless obtain February’s demo from Steam, GOG, and the Epic Video games Retailer. An ‘Enhanced Version’ of System Shock 2 is coming from Nightdive too; try the jiggly Rumbler they confirmed off final month.

The not possible sequel, System Shock 3 is ostensibly nonetheless in improvement however sounds all kinds of troubled. Tencent took over from the unique builders final yr and… that is the final I heard. I’ve no hope invested in System Shock 3 however, y’know, I would definitely be curious.
