System Shock 3 Teaser Revealed at Unity’s Game Developers Conference

System Shock 3

OtherSide Entertainment showed off the first teaser for System Shock 3 during Unity’s keynote at this week’s Game Developers Conference.

OnlySP broke news about this game’s reveal way back in 2015, but fans are just now getting a peek at some of its first official media.

Despite recently losing its publisher, Starbreeze Studios, the team behind the third installment to this series remains optimistic. Warren Spector, a producer for the original System Shock, had the following to say in a recent update posted to the OtherSide blog:

“We parted ways with Starbreeze (amicably), which means we are in the process of lining up a new publishing partner. Happily, given the pedigree of System Shock and the progress we’ve made so far, there’s already a lot of interest. Has the situation affected development? Not really. The team is still, as we say, ‘psyched and cranking’—in other words, continuing as normal. I’m confident we can bring System Shock 3 to market and have it take its place as a leading title in the immersive simulation genre.”

As far as gameplay or a look into what System Shock 3 has to offer goes, the teaser is shallow, but confirms that SHODAN is making yet another return. The footage in the video is described as “pre-alpha,” and you can check it out for yourself here:

A release date or list of supported platforms has yet to be announced for System Shock 3, but the game is confirmed for a PC release.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
