Starbreeze Signs On As Publisher For System Shock 3

Today, Starbreeze announced a publishing deal with Otherside Entertainment to bring System Shock 3 to PC and other platforms. Starbreeze, a developer known for Payday 2, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, and two Chronicles of Riddick games, has recently been helping publish games, such as Dead By Daylight and Psychonauts 2. 

Industry veteran Warren Spector is currently spearheading System Shock 3's development with a team comprised of members who worked on previous System Shock games, Deus Ex, and Thief: The Dark Project. 

The game is still a ways out, and only in the early concept stages of development, but there's a lot of excitement to see the beloved franchise live on. "System Shock is one of those iconic franchises in the history of games that still gets my blood going and Mr. Spector is one of the founding fathers of the modern action/RPG" said Bo Andersson-Klint, Starbreeze CEO in a press release. "We're greatly looking forward to bringing System Shock 3 to players world wide in our collaboration with Otherside Entertainment and Warren Spector's team. I'll be first in line to play".

New Overwatch Character Orisa Launches Next Week

New Overwatch Character Orisa Launches Next Week

After finally revealing Orisa and putting her through the paces on the PTR, the newest Overwatch character finally has a debut date. Orisa will be playable starting March 21, a week from today.

The new tank hosts a bevy of skills that are sure to be beneficial to your team. She can toss out a protective barrier to shield her teammates from fire, or use a graviton charge to pull nearby enemies to its location. The robot even has a power called “fortify” to temporarily reduce the damage she takes, and also voids any action-impairing effects targeted at her. Reinhardt’s stun and charge have nothing against Orisa. As far as muscle goes, she has a projectile cannon that slows her movement, similar to D.Va. Her ultimate is the best for firepower under duress – it supercharges damage for allies within her line-of-sight. 

You can check out the behind-the-scenes video below to get the lowdown on Orisa, and start deciding if she’s the character for you.
