System Shock 2 Now Available On GOG.com For $9.99Go. Now.02.14.13 - 9:24 AM
GOG.com has announced that System Shock 2
, one of the first - and best - RPG/FPS hybrids is now available on their platform for $9.99 USD. Brainchild of Ken Levine, now known best for the spiritual successor BioShock
, System Shock 2
takes players onboard a starship while they fight against the maniacal artificial intelligence SHODAN.
Due to a complex rights issue, the game couldn't be re-released, though it appears that this particular knot has been unraveled. Could we see System Shock 3 sometime in the future? That's still cloudy. But today, you should play System Shock 2 - it holds up incredibly well.
