First and foremost, we ask you that you do not stream, or share screenshots/video to avoid spoiling the game for others. With that said we hope you have fun!

Here’s how to access the game:

We’ve received a ton of requests to make this Beta a separate release so backers can keep it in their library post launch.

You’ll be required to log-in to your backerkit to retrieve your Steam key which you can redeem.

Once activated you should see “System Shock - Backer Beta” in your Steam library.

Here are some things to keep in mind while playing the Beta game…
  • There will be bugs
  • There will be unfinished/unpolished features
  • The Beta will receive periodic hotfixes/updates
  • Initially only English language will be available
After you’re done playing we would really appreciate your feedback so we can improve the experience. We’ve prepared a few questions in a survey you can access here:

That’s it! We hope you have a great time.
