STALKER 2 looks like a spooky and atmospheric experience in this new gameplay trailer

Stalker 2

Technically, it’s news to someone even if it is almost a week old! While we were all shoving handfuls of food into our gaping maws during the silly season (how do you make mince out of fruit and turn it into a pie asking for a friend), developer GSC Game World  dropped a new trailer showing off STALKER 2’s first-person atmosphere. Well it was on December 31 to be technical, but considering that we had a very dry new year’s, I’m guessing you all celebrated with food instead. Check it out below:

There aren’t too many details to glean from the trailer, other than the fact that Chernobyl’s irradiated exclusion zone looks about as tourist-friendly as visiting a Manchester pub while wearing a Liverpool top. It’s ominous, everything is coated in Baytanium judging by how flammable ordinary objects are, and it’s probably fashionable to mutate a few extra eyeballs if you call the radioactive-wrecked Zone your home.

In case you missed it, here’s the other STALKER 2 trailer that also showed off the game’s environment, which dates back to the July Xbox Game Showcase:

It has been a heck of a long journey for STALKER 2. With Shadow of Chernobyl proving to be a smash hit back in 2007, follow-ups such as Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat continued to build on its legacy and a proper sequel was inevitable. That sequel looked well on its way towards being realised in 2011, and then all hell broke loose. Talent left, tensions rose, and we got several superb Metro games in the fallout, when 4A Games formed from the developer exodus.

Silver linings, and all that.

  1. Do you really want that fruit mince pie recipe?
    Cause yeah, I agree that those things CAN be awesome, if prepared properly. Some stores just stuff them up…
    But I’m a baking prodigy, yo! Or so I tell myself every time my latest batch of sweet baked goodies come out the oven.

      Do not enter the wormhole that is Darryn’s preference for food… You will never recover from the experience

        Yeah, I hear he even likes those KFC dunked wings. Disgusting stuff.
        Which is why I’m shocked he won’t write about the KFC console. It seems like a match made in hell.

          Fun fact: It has been around two years since I last had Dunked Zinger Wings. Not because I’m off them, but the price for their delicious flavour is a stomach that feels like it just went 12 rounds with Mike Tyson.

            Fun facts are meant to be fun.
            You have:
            a) admitted you still want them dunked wings, so that’s astounding
            b) expressed that you cannot have something you want, which makes it sad

            So that’s more of an astoundingly sad fact you just told me.

            I subscribe to the Plankton definition of “Fun”.

          Dunked wings are fucking appalling. Absolute abomination. Gah, even thinking about them makes me want to smash in my own teeth.

          It’s meat and fruit in pie form clearly. Pure heresy.

            Perfect for me, in other words.
