Nightdive Studios' 'System Shock' remake is coming to PS4

Fan demand can do wonders for projects like this one.

The Kickstarter-funded System Shock remake from Nightdive Studios is coming along swimmingly, having already reached its funding goal of $900,000 with 7 days to go in its campaign. Because of the huge demand from fans, it's now coming to an additional platform: PlayStation 4.

The announcement showed up on the project's Kickstarter blog, with an update detailing the impending console release. After taking note of an "overwhelming demand" for a PS4 version of System Shock, the team at Nightdive Studios collaborated with Sony to make it happen, and it looks like it's definitely going to happen. It's not contingent on a stretch goal or additional funds, but as the company describes it, it's a "thank you" to backers who put their faith in the project.

Currently System Shock is set for release on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One and now PlayStation 4. You can pick up a free alpha demo for a taste of the game now.
