System Shock 3?

Recommended Posts

Holy shit, this completely flew past me.. not only is there a remake of the original, there is an actual SS3 being developed by OtherSide Entertainment, comprised of ex employees from Looking Glass and Irrational Games. LET THE HYPE BEGIN!!!

Just found out the reboot's been changed over to Unreal Engine:

It looks a lot more 'conventional' now and seems to lack a lot of the visual clarity of the Unity version.

Part of that process involved reevaluating Nightdive’s approach to the game’s technology after discovering that “Unity is not a great engine to use if you want to make an FPS on console,” game director Jason Fader told Polygon at the 2017 Game Developers Conferencethis week. “So we spent a few weeks researching other engines, really diving deep with Unreal and Lumberyard, and we made the decision to pull the trigger and move forward with Unreal.” 

When asked why the shift was necessary, Fader explained that because of a combination of fidelity, cross-platform support, content-creation pipelines and performance reasons, “Unreal was the smarter direction to go.” So with that decision made, the team set about staffing up and working on a new vertical slice — a sort of proof of concept prototype.

Maybe they need some time to tweak it to the same level?
