Still can't believe this is a thing tbh, with Warren Spector working on it no less. Truly the gen of dreams.

Nice! For some reason I have always had this rendition of a concept art for Shodan stuck in my head:



You can really sense the malice of the entity.

I wonder what they're going to do with the story. Are they just recapitulating the second game?
OUR FATE IS IN YOUR HANDS made me feel this might be a larger scale story than the ones before, where the stakes are more transparently high.

Doesn't seem like they're carrying it in a particularly new bent though, and I'm okay with that. SHODAN was always the best at being a menacing villain over a complex one.

It feels like what the recent Prey "reboot" would have been had they been using the System Shock IP - ironic considering how much that game is inspired by System Shock in the first place. The progress since the earlier showings is very noticeable, keeping an eye on this.

WHAT

I did not know Spector was working on this.

Ok, GOTY whenever it releases.
you trusting spector that much? his last two games were mediocre at best and i know this is not the same team but otherside also made the catastrophe that was underworld ascendant. on top of that starbreeze probably pulled all their funding back so i'm not even sure if SS3 has any chance of being good. i don't want to be disappointed.

Yes, it feels very familiar after playing Prey. I wonder what they're planning to do to distinguish themselves. That music certainly isn't helping, but after the SS1 remake went for an orchestral soundtrack as well, I suppose it was too much to ask to hope that they'd keep the electronica of the two original games.

From the creative minds behind Epic Mickey 2 and Underworld Ascendant

please be good
Underworld was made by another team at Otherside. Warren Spectre seems to have gotten himself into another IonStorm situation where his team is separate from the shenanigans of the main team, hopefully he can pull off another deus ex here, so to speak..
I like what I'm seeing from that trailer

OMG. It looks fucking amazing. It's the sequel to one of my all time favorite games. It's the only PC game that is always installed on my PC.

God, I wanted to believe in Underworld: Ascendant so much. This really looks great though. That robot enemy with just a flayed torso hanging from it is really disturbing.
