The Nightdive Studios Systen Shock 2 20th Anniversary Celebration live stream kicks off in 40 minutes.

The System Shock remake is in development for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, and will release in 2020.

System Shock 2 is a classic from the 90s that had a big part in creating the genre we now refer to as the Immersive Sim. Gut says there's a solid chance of a sneaky trailer for the game dropping during the new press conference that's being held during Gamescom, but we'll keep you posted. Although the release date wasn't confirmed, however Nightdive said the enhanced edition is "coming soon". Unfortunately, and besides that, the team did not reveal any additional details. The studio is now working on a remake of System Shock which was a Kickstarter success back in 2016, though there have been some issues.

Developed at Looking Glass Studios, System Shock 2's lead designer was Ken Levine, who went on to create Bioshock.

System Shock 2 was an incredibly important game for the game industry so it's excellent to see it being given some love. Fingers crossed that Nightdive Studios offers up some sort of collector's edition bundle with all three titles at some point in time.

After hearing about the Enhanced Edition of System Shock 2, what are your thoughts?
