Earlier this month, Nightdive Studio’s Kickstarter-backed project to bring back and recreate the original System Shock game from the ground up was successfully funded. But in today’s daily update to the project, the team have announced that the game will now also be coming to PS4. While a Sony platform was not part of any of the project’s initial stretch goals, Nightdive describe this latest announcement as “a thank you to our backers that put their faith in us.” The update was accompanied by the below pack-shot of the PS4 iteration.
“When we launched this Kickstarter, supporting PS4 was a possibility, but we hadn’t started talking to Sony just yet about it.” Nightdive’s jason Fader explains. “We were all focused on wrapping the demo up and prepping the Kickstarter…after we saw the overwhelming demand for PS4, we reshuffled our priorities and focused on talking to Sony about making that happen. After a few weeks and lotttts [sic] of emails, we are officially on track for bringing System Shock to the PS4!”
The developers have confirmed that the PS4 version will now be one of the viable choices for backers who supported $30 or more to the project and will get a free digital copy upon release.
