GSC Game World’s famous post-nuclear survivalist nightmare sandbox trilogy is finally receiving a sequel. Like the original games, Stalker 2 promises to be a unique blend of first-person shooter, immersive sim, and horror.
Stalker 2 resurfaced back in March this year with a single screenshot and an assurance that this is GSC’s most ambitious game yet. A previous attempt was aborted years ago, but more than a decade on, there’s still plenty of reasons to be excited for a return to The Zone.
The simulation of the factions and creatures in Stalker 2 will be controlled by A-Life 2.0, a reimagined version of the A-Life system that appeared in the original games.
The game is launching on PC and Xbox Series X simultaneously, though no release date has been announced.
