Source Port Update #1 is available now!

Greetings Hackers,

A new patch is out now for System Shock Enhanced Edition that fixes the following issues:

Version 1.1.5 (2018-09-13):
  • Increased maximum 3D points from 256 to 1024 in order to prevent random renderer crashes.
  • Moved writable files to Application Roaming Data folder (missions, languages, mods, kexengine.cfg, mods.cfg and CRASHLOG.TXT).
  • Added show_string console command for developer mode.
  • Enabled starting the game without Steam running on background by using "-no-social" command-line argument (Steam version only).
  • Fixed brackets and question mark key commands (now named left_brack, right_brack and question_mark).
  • Fixed lockup in item cycle selection when player doesn't have any item of a given class (software, patches and grenades).
  • Fixed "Press a key" message positioning on key binding menu.
  • Removed unused game thread.
  • Fixed crash when music file path contains more than 64 characters.
  • Fixed sliders minimum/maximum values in menus, now preventing user from increasing values past maximum when using left and right direction keys.
  • Fixed crash when loading games with MFD bio status exposed in full screen mode.
  • Fixed crash when double-clicking executable outside Steam desktop app (Steam version only).
We hope you enjoy the update. Please let us know of any problems in the forums!

Happy Hacking!

“While certain aspects of System Shock don't hold up in today's world, a surprising amount of them do. New players, like myself, can jump right in and have a very enjoyable experience, full of atmosphere and action. The enhanced version is exactly what it claims to be, and makes the game way more playable than the original version.”

“System Shock: Enhanced Edition is the best way to play an immortal classic.”
90 – Multiplayer it

“If you haven’t played System Shock before, there’s never been a better time. Whether you’re into shooters or RPGs; or just want to experience a cyberpunk romp with a good beat, this one is for you.”

A first-person fight to the death in the depths of space.

You're a renowned hacker, the most notorious cyberspace thief in the corporate world. Caught during a risky break-in, you become indentured to Diego, a greedy Trioptium exec who bankrolls a rare cyberjack implant operation. After six months in a healing coma, you awaken to the twisted aftermath of a terrible disaster. Where are the surgeons? Why is the station in such disrepair? Slowly, the chilling realization that something is very wrong creeps over you.
Once a prime corporate research facility, Citadel now teems with mindless cyborgs, robots and terribly mutated beings, all programmed to serve SHODAN, a ruthless A.I. There's scarcely time to think before it unleashes the first terror...



Gameplay features:
  • Rocket through cyberspace to steal information, hack security and grapple with watchdog defense programs enslaved to a maniacal computer.
  • Survive battle after battle against armies of killer cyborgs and deadly robots as you collect hardware attachments, life-sustaining patches and deadly weapons to combat mindless mutants.
  • Test your intelligence by solving puzzles, rewiring access panels and outwitting SHODAN in its own cyber-realm.
  • Enjoy the vastly improved controls and graphics of the Enhanced Edition - or keep your experience as close to the original as possible with the Classic version.
