Back in May 2008 we wrote a review of the original STALKER game and rewarded the RPG a good 8/10, later got our hands on the first standalone expansion pack in our video review of STALKER Clear Sky giving it a disappointing 6/10. Now there is news about the proper sequel to PC shooter STALKER – Call of Pripyat will feature the town of Pripyat as well as The Zone around Chernobyl. Expect all the weirdness of the first game with some much better graphics this time around.
Update (14 Jan 2010)
Originally we reported that the STALKER Call of Pripyat release date was announced for Autumn 2009. Since then it has been pushed back to a concrete release date of the 2nd of February 2010 in the US with Amazon accepting pre-orders – so you can preorder S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat from Amazon for $39.99, also available from the 5th of February in the UK for £29.99.
If you like post apocalypse RPG games and can’t wait until the release of Call of Pripyat then we recommend Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition for the PC which includes both the game itself and all the expansion packs for one neat price.
