System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition VR Support Confirmed

Back in January, Nightdive Studios hinted at the possibility of System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition having VR support. And now, we have this quick IGN interview with Nightdive’s boss Stephen Kick that confirms that the EE will be fully playable in VR and feature cross-play between standard PCs and VR headsets.

Here’s an excerpt:

“During the process of reverse-engineering the missing libraries for System Shock 2, we had an opportunity to play around with the idea of creating a standalone VR version,” says Kick in an interview with IGN. “And so we brought on an [VR] expert to look about the cod and give us a brief idea of what kind of things we could do.”

With this blueprint, Nightdive found that there was a solid enough foundation in System Shock 2 to begin fleshing out a full VR version. Kick says System Shock 2 Enhanced Edition will be fully playable in VR along with the game’s multiplayer mode. So co-op can be played in VR in cross-platform, where one player can be in VR and another can play on a standard PC.
