System Shock 2 Now on Steam, Discounted for a Limited Time

System Shock 2 (GOG, Steam)

We already knew that System Shock 2 was coming to Steam, but we didn’t know when exactly. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait that long, since Looking Glass Studios’ first-person shooter/survival horror is now available on Steam .

According to the Steam listing, System Shock 2 costs $9.99, but if you buy it between today and May 17th, you can get the game for $6.99. If you don’t like DRM, remember that the game is also available on GOG.

But what’s the big deal with this game? For the uninitiated, System Shock 2 is one of the most influential and groundbreaking first-person shooters ever made and is also remembered for being the spiritual predecessor to the Bioshock series.
