System Shock 2 is an absolutely incredible game! If you weren't fortunate enough to own a copy and play it back in 1999 when it was released than you may not have ever played it which is an absolute travesty! Well fret no more because it will be released very soon on Steam and GOG. A few months ago there was a huge patch that was released for it which got rumours going about a possible reboot or re release. This is one of those rare moments when my money becomes sentient and physically takes itself out of my wallet and tries to force itself through my PC.

If you are unsure or doubt System Shock 2's popularity than have a look at GOG's games wishlist where you will notice that it is currently top of the list by approximately 9,000 votes.

System Shock 2 is an action role-playing survival horror video game for Microsoft Windows. The title was designed by Ken Levine and co-developed by Irrational Games and Looking Glass Studios.

The game takes place on board a starship in a cyberpunk depiction of 2114. The player assumes the role of a lone soldier trying to stem the outbreak of a genetic infection that has devastated the ship. Like System Shock, gameplay consists of first person shooting and exploration. It also incorporates role-playing system elements, in which the player can develop unique skills and traits, such as hacking and psionic abilities.

System Shock 2 was created by the same studio responsible for the Bioshock series but is still considered the best game they ever made.

While there has been no official announcement in regards to release date it is rumoured to be available on GOG in just a few days.
