Authored Look of Underworld Ascendant for System Shock 3!


Of course it doesn’t have to have an overtly cyberpunk look, but the subject matter draws a heavy influence from cyberpunk literature, so it just strikes me as an analagous approach to the one they took with Underworld, using a retro or naive style to wear its influences in an overt way.

Cyberpunk does seem to be alive and well in gaming, though. Aside from the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, there’s stuff like Deus Ex, Sattelite Reign, Shadowrun, Blood Dragon, etc.


Art style is different for every game. I would expect the SS team to go with whatever direction they want. I doubt they will aim for a retro/old school dnd vibe.
