System Shock: Enhanced Edition will be available on GOG.com and will offer improved visuals, gameplay, and more.

System Shock originally released back in 1994 and is categorized as an FPS/RPG hybrid which helped influence a number of noteworthy games, like Deus Ex and BioShock. Its enhanced edition supports resolutions up to 1024x768 and native 854x480 widescreen support. Gameplay has also been improved as a toggleable mouselook mode has been added, remappable controls, a more intuitive inventory and item management system, and assorted bug fixes.

Those looking for a more authentic experience can play the game with its original content in System Shock: Classic. This version of the game fully supports modern systems while leaving the rest of its experience completely unaltered.

Both System Shock: Enhanced Edition and Classic are available in a single package and will be discounted during its launch week. All GOG.com customers will receive a 20% discount for the game, while those who own System Shock 2 will be able to pick this bundle up for 40% off. These discounts will last until September 29 at 2:59am EDT.

      Wow are we not talking about this already??? Wake up, Shack!

      I wouldn't have really thought about an HD make over of many classic games, but I think SS2 would probably be the best candidate. Poly up everything, nice textures, maybe polish the audio, update some old UI designs, but leave the core game completely intact. I'd buy that. I might even kickstart that.

        We were only allowed to publish our story on it when the embargo lifted. Thus then why our story was published at 8:00am.

        There are some really nice graphic mods for SS2. High res textures and models. I went all Skyrim on it.

          I keep forgetting about this stuff. I guess I was picturing more like moving it to a new engine, like U4 or something.

      OMG OMG OMG! THIS IS AWESOME. I tried playing it before years ago but those were the two exact issues that put me off - no mouse look or widescreen. I'm going to play this as soon as I get home tonight, what a fantastic surprise treat!

      I don't normally enjoy waking up to an email, but this was one I smiled to.

      Also to no real fanfare they released Douglas Adams' Starship Titanic last Wednesday, which is cool.

      2 I can handle (favorite game of all time) but I tried this one and it's too far back mechanically, the nostalgia didn't hold up. =(
