Sydney, Australia – 12 April 2024 – The award-winning System Shock remake, based on the iconic 1994 sci-fi action game, has received its highly anticipated version 1.2 PC content updated – adding an expanded ending, a new female hacker protagonist and dozen of gameplay enhancements.

Nightdive Studios’ stunningly faithful recreation of the classic shooter/immersive sim was released to critical acclaim in 2023 on PC.
