A decade after the last episode of the unique supernatural action game series - we are supposed to have an official sequel that tries to preserve the brand's main hallmarks
The trio of STALKER games, from the Ukrainian developer GSC Game World, have been and remain good examples to this day that sometimes the whole is really big from the screen of the parts that make it up - these ambitious action games were loaded with technical problems when launched (Reminds you of something from the recent period?), But still managed to enchant some of the player community thanks to a unique approach and atmosphere that just does not get in many much larger and more prestigious games.
In this case it was the ability to explore a wild, strange and dangerous world based on the forbidden area around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, where the most famous nuclear accident occurred - with different activity groups each with its own agenda, extraterrestrial natural phenomena that could kill the player in an instant , Stressful mutations and unique artifacts that form the basis for success in completing the games. Despite bugs, crashes and performance issues the atmosphere in these games was mesmerizing, and contributed to the desire to keep playing and exploring nonetheless.
Plans to create a sequel for three STALKER games from the first incarnation were revealed back in 2010, but various financial difficulties led to announcements of its cancellation on a number of different occasions in the years that followed, and original enthusiasts had to settle for the Metro 2033 series offering a similar (but much more linear) post-apocalyptic world. . Now we hope the plans are close to becoming a reality, at last, when Development A remake for STALKER 2 unveiled in 2018 is approaching the end point and provides us with a new short impression video.
In the fresh video from the actual game engine you can get an impression of a bonfire and a guitar inside a half-ruined structure, which are small elements that made STALKER games from the past famous, course wood and wind-sweeping rags that may indicate new technologies planned for the sequel (physical destruction and support for horns)? What looks like the outbreak of a formidable anomaly from which players will have to find shelter - another factor that symbolizes the brand and differentiates it from countless similar melancholy action games.
At the end of the video there is no reference to the planned launch date for the intriguing game, but there is approval for planning to launch it for both PCs and consoles.Xbox Series S and theXbox Microsoft Series X (Including availability as part of theXbox The company's popular Game Pass from the beginning) - for the first time for the series that until today was exclusively for thePC. Earlier statements talked about the launch of STALKER 2 during 2021, and it seems that this is still the developer's design, and all we have left is to hope that the parallel development for consoles and computers will not harm the quality and maturity of the product we get.
The first trailer for the game was shown a little over five months ago, also on the official YouTube channel of the divisionXbox - but it seems to have been based on a dedicated and pre-created CGI segment. The new trailer is a first glimpse into the actual game engine, ostensibly, and symbolizes further maturation in the development process that has been going on for the past two years
