About This Game

"Remember, it is my will that guided you here. It is my will that gave you your cybernetic implants, the only beauty in that meat you call a body. If you value that meat... you will do as I tell you."


The cult classic sci-fi horror FPS-RPG has returned.


You awake from the cold chill of your cryo-tube to discover cybernetic implants grafted to your flesh and the crew of the starship Von Braun slaughtered. The infected roam the halls, their screams and moans beckoning you to join them as the rogue artificial intelligence known as SHODAN taunts and ridicules your feeble attempt to unravel the horrifying mystery of the derelict starship Von Braun.

Your Training Has Prepared You For This.

  • Choose from 3 specialized branches of the military to utilize unique skills, weaponry, and paranormal psionic powers.
  • Upgrade and enhance your skills to improve hacking, weapon proficiency, and psionic abilities.
  • Discover cryptic audio logs, encounter ghostly apparitions and conduct research to give you the advantage in combat and unlock exotic weapons and items.
  • Play with up to three friends in multiplayer co-op (co-op works in Windows only)
System Shock™ 2 is a genre defining experience that established innovative game-play mechanics that are a staple of the FPS and RPG genre today. It has gone on to inspire some of the greatest titles of our generation with games including Deus Ex® and Bioshock®
Discover how a haunting story, innovative game-play and a terrifying atmosphere has made System Shock™ 2 one of the greatest games of all time.

The Mac OS and Linux versions of System Shock 2 use a technology called "WINE" to function on those operating systems.
