Development is slowly but surely moving along on Otherside Entertainment's revival of the classic System Shock series, and the developer recently released a series of new pre-production screens to indicate just how well it's coming together, thanks to Polygon.
The game, which is being worked on by the team, along with original series designer Warren Spector, marking his first time in over two decades that he's done anything with the franchise.
Said Spector about the franchise, "I produced System Shock and played System Shock 2, so I'm pretty familiar with the universe. And there were some fictional loose ends to explore and tie up. That sounded like fun. Also, SHODAN. You know what I mean?"
SHODAN is making a return, still as menacing as ever, as you'll have to deal with whatever she dishes out from you. The plot details aside from that are being kept under wraps, but the events reportedly follow what happened in System Shock 2 quite a few years back.
As for making the experience unique and immersive, Spector added, "I think having more immersive simulation games out there is all to the good. Based on what I've seen of Prey so far, there are some similarities but I assure you, we're doing stuff that team didn't do, just as they did stuff we're not. I'm not worried about people getting confused."
