Otherside Entertainment has twitterpated legions of fans with last night's release of a new System Shock 3 trailer during the Unity Keynote at the Game Developers' Conference in San Francisco. The trailer features pre-alpha gameplay footage and showcases a dark, edgy mood.
If you were hoping for release information, well, sorry about that, but at least we have a trailer and some sage words from Warren Spector.
“We want players to feel alone in a strange and dangerous place, a station on the outskirts of our solar system. It’s a world which was once alive with activity but is now controlled by a rogue AI named SHODAN. Living on this station, or unliving on this station, are only robots, mutants and the dead.
“We’ve got a bunch of gameplay systems in mind that we’re absolutely not going to talk about today. But from a visual standpoint, we needed a setting that was noir-like, dominated by deep, dark, problematic, disturbing shadows, and punctuated by areas of intense, focused light.”
