Finally a community fix for the much beloved game, since Looking Glass studios is no longer around we had to take it into our hands. ~Le Corbeau
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 2.0 has been released!
We are pleased to announce that the beta phase is now over and the mod can be played in full.
The team wishes to thank all who contributed to the project with their tests and reports!
System Shock Infinite is a story mod which extends the original finale with a quest to restore the amnesiac protagonist's identity, through hundreds of new events in the main campaign. Since version 2.0, the quest continues into all-new Cyberspace levels and features a plotline with multiple endings. Enjoy our extended trailer for a complete preview of the mod!
What is the story about? System Shock 2 never ended: to this day, the amnesiac player is still trapped in Shodan's virtual reality. Taking inspiration from Solaris and Groundhog Day, the story presents you with a stream of hallucinations about your lost comrades. Each has their point of view on the situation and yourself. The ones you trust rebuild your new identity, breaking the stalemate. Full script.
How does it play like? Shaken, not stirred: the new events are familiar variations of the vanilla ones. To tackle the issue of difficulty within the previous version, combat in 2.0 can be as advanced as you like. Play on the lower difficulties and you get a FPS with rpg elements. Play on the hardest setting and you get an RPG with shooting mechanics, requiring good knowledge of the skills system.
Highest Rated (2 agree) 10/10
Playing it with Rebirth and SHTUP installed, it's worth it. I liked it more then Deus Ex, may be because you start without everything but bare hands. Survival horror at it's best. And it's cyberpunk!
The game ahead of it's time.
