System Shock fans, we’ve got some good and some bad news for you today. The good news is that ‘Mark Valentine’ has released his assets for the Source Engine remake of System Shock 2. The bad news is that Valentine has stopped working on this port, meaning that this project is – more or less – cancelled. Fortunately, Valentine claimed that people are welcome to continue working on it, and that he’ll help with this project’s development if that ever happens.
As Valentine said:
“I’m releasing all my assets because I hate it when people make something cool and they just sit on their assets and all that work is lost forever. I refuse to do that. So here’s all the map files, all the models and textures I had converted, some basic instructions for the pipeline I was using.”
Those interested can download System Shock 2’s Source assets from here.
Valentine has also released a video that can be viewed below.
Enjoy, and let’s hope that other people will continue and finish this Source port!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
