System Shock 2 begins with you being unfrozen from a long cryogenic sleep aboard the Rickenbacker, a security spaceship assigned to tail the Von Braun on her maiden voyage. Apparently, the Von Braun has been infested by an unknown alien race and has converted the crew into relatively intelligent zombies. You must gather bits of audio clips along the way to figure out what happened to your crew and, more importantly, how you can rid the ship of the aliens. Rely on your skills training from either the Navy, Marines, or OSA to guide you on this difficult path. This 3D title offers unbelievable graphics, as the Thief engine is utilized to provide mouth-watering environments and character skins. The astounding graphics, varied RPG elements, and fluid action make this title worthwhile.

System Shock Infinite 2.4 has been released!

Story. What if it were actually possible, for the Soldier to meet up with Dr. Delacroix in the hangar bays? Join the two of them as they enter Shodan's world and become trapped in her schemes. What is real and what is hallucination, in her artificial reality? The answer lies in the amnesiac player's memory. Full script.

Gameplay. Infinite plays a game of expectations with the veteran player. Core gameplay remains the same, but variation in the familiar events keeps you on edge: the formula is "shaken, not stirred". Choose a lower difficulty for a more arcade experience, or try the higher ones for some old-school RPG complexity.



Steam installation instructions. Right click on System Shock 2 in your Steam library and select "Launch with Fan Missions". When FMSel prompts you about creating the \FMs folder, click "yes". Place Infinite's folder in \FMs and play via FMSel.

GOG installation instructions. Run SS2Tool to update your game. It will add a shortcut to FMSel on the start menu: "SS2 Fan Mission Selector". When it prompts you about creating the \FMs folder, click "yes". Place Infinite's folder in \FMs and play via FMSel.

Alternatively, you can use Blue Mod Manager and place Infinite's folder in \DMM. If you are having issues running mods and your game is installed in Program Files, move it to a different folder like C:\SS2.

Why are there so many HD packs for this game? I personally don't need them to enjoy this game, the standard models perfectly fit the game and they look scary as hell (even more than the HD ones). I wish people made more singleplayer missions and less HD mods...

For those who loved Thief and/or System Shock should check out Terra Nova, another Looking Glass Studios Classic brought back from the dead thanks to Night Dive Studios: Gog.com

Just letting people know.

Also download SS2Tool v5.3.
Systemshock.org

It will download a few updates and bring your game up to date.

It will put 'Blue mod manager; in the game folder too.
You can then run the Blue mod manager and see all the mods in the modpack i mention in my last comment.
You can then choose to activate or deactivate each mod.

system shock 2 mod pack

It has most of the the good mods.
Not sure if it works ok with this mod.
I think it should be ok as the modoack has its own folder ,but it does overwrite one ini file in the root folder.

This game is not scare but filled with freaking annoying things such as respawning and boring enemies, alarm-cameras everywhere, questionable rpg elemnts, poor animations, hard to find a way moments, slow player movement makes exploring like hell, etc. Just deleted it yet.

Wow you're such a jerk if you think this game is a heap of ****, go back to playing your boring Call of Duty games until you realise what a masterpiece this game is!

It has a nice, creepy atmosphere- but not many scary moments, and a nice RPG system; the story is well paced, and voice acting is pretty good for the time it was released. But it's not perfect as some say: from a technical point, the game is average compared to it's contemporary engines (e.g. Half-Life or Unreal). Monsters and people look too square-shaped, and while they may scare you with their sounds, their look washes away the fear. Sound is also average, some sounds (like the pistol) don't…
