System Shock is an action role-playing game developed by Looking Glass Technologies and published by Origin Systems. Released in 1994, the game is set aboard the fictional Citadel Station in a cyberpunk vision of 2072. Assuming the role of a nameless hacker, the player attempts to hinder the plans of a malevolent artificial intelligence.

The second fanmission for System Shock called RUBY STATION and its standalone weapon mod just arrived! Play through the singleplayer level Ruby Station and learn about the 14 brand new weapons before taking them with you while replaying the original System Shock campaign. Before you play, you might want to read through the paragraphs below to find out what Ruby Station actually is:

The Fanmission
Unlike the first fanmission System Shock ReWired, the Ruby Station fanmission is just an addition to introduce the new weapons and their advantages and disadvantages to the player. It's a single level in which you take over the role of a UNN Soldier being send to Ruby Station to test some new weapons authorised by the UNN. While she follows her orders, an incident occurs and she sees herself surrounded by clones and replicas of monsters from Citadel Station. UNN was nice enough to clone the horrors created by SHODAN to use as test dummies for new recruits. Nice, huh?

The Features
Most of the work on Ruby Station went into creating new spriteart for existing weapons, textures, crates, posters, icons, the userinterface etc. A big chunk of original textures got redrawn and added more details to give them a more modern look and be on par with the high resolution the Sourceport provides. Each weapon required up to 5 sprites that had to be changed and redrawn to fit the new look the mod wants to establish. I do hope that whoever plays the fanmission or uses the weapons will enjoy the new art as much as I enjoyed making it.

Standalone Weapon Mod
The main star of Ruby Station is the gameplay mod, which changes the original weapons of System Shock. Old-time players that already finished the original game many times can now play through it again with a completely different set of weapons. For example. The handguns now use anti-personnel OR armor-piercing bullets and have different rates of fire. The Magpulse is now a Plasma Rifle ala Doom. The useless Riot Gun is now a powerful shotgun. Among other things!

Hello there! Despite having competition of a remake and a SS3 in the works, there's a project working on cracking all the data files - creating editor tools as a by-product. The result of this is a very first level mod. It's more a proof of concept example rather than an evening-filling sequence of levels. Still - there's hope, if there is demand :)

There was a time when no other game was as good as ss1. So advance for his time. Mastering the controls where part of the game. I hope for a remake.

Awesome game! I played this everyday last year. How is this a role playing game? It looks more like a shooter.

You think someone who used to modern graphics and got into gaming not so long ago wouldn't be able to fully appreciate that game with its atmosphere and horror?
I think this is the kind that really should have a remake, this and the 2nd one, so people from later generation of gamers like myself would enjoy these game more. Somebody, make it! Make System Shock HD!

Good story, horrible gameplay. Too difficult too. In System Shock 2 they perfected it

How can you say horrible gameplay? This is what all modern day FPS gameplay is based upon! After an hour, you'll get used to the clunky controls and they will be second nature!

Innovative gameplay, control method, excellent story, atmosphere. Mixed two generes FPS and adventure, the first of this kind. Customizable experience: you can tune combat, cyberspace, story and general difficulty.
A mind blowing game with ground breaking technologies.
The first and the ultimate game.
