In addition to the soundtrack, the GOG.com version of the game will have concept art, maps of the Von Braun, a interview with Ken Levine, the first pitch document, and much more.
“Negotiations began in October of last year,” says Stephen Kick of Night Dive. “I pitched the rights-holder with the focus being on the digital distribution of System Shock 2 and – as much to my surprise as anyone’s, possibly – here we are today.”
System Shock 2, is a first-person survival horror game with RPG elements. It was developed by Irrational Games and Looking Glass Studios, and was designed by Ken Levine. The gameplay was very similar to BioShock, which is considered a spiritual successor to the System Shock series, but was a little more complex, with more in-depth RPG mechanics, character development and a wider range of weapons and abilities.
You will be able to purchase System Shock 2 for $9.99.
