S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 / Website about the game STALKER 2 / NEWS, Screenshots, videos, gameplay, plot, news, release date
The hour has come, when the long-term lull was interrupted by GSC Game World's statement about developing S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2.
This late at night on may 15, 2018, said in his facebook profile Sergey Grigorovich, founder of the company.
On the official website of the game "Stalker 2" now flaunts the name of the game and the four numbers written through the point: "18.104.22.168." The gaming community has suggested that it was in 2021 that the long-awaited game will be released, ignoring the version that 2021 is the year of the events, in the world of which the main hero of the game S. T. A. L. K. E. R. 2 will exist. But in any case, the point between the numbers is nothing more than a simple stylization of the text, which we can find even on the site of GSC Game World in the inscription "A. N. O. U. N. C. E. D. 2".
The history of the development of the game has enough interesting facts that talk about the possible unpredictability of the results of the work of the Studio, because we have seen a striking return of experienced developers in the project team, and the announcement of the complete closure of the Studio after only a month. The reason for this was the financial problems in which even the almost finished version of the game (the development period 2009-2011) had to be postponed in the archive, forcing a huge part of the team to leave the Studio and to replenish its portfolio to start publishing the results of their works in the form of video and photo materials. All this, coupled with the failure of the timing and the statement of the termination of the development greatly shattered the authority of not only the company, but also personally Sergey Grigorovich.
By combining the available information about the development period of S. T. A. L. K. E. R. 2 of the past years, as well as new trends in the gaming industry, we can predict some important moments, the appearance of which in the new game is almost guaranteed.
How to excite the gaming community
Announcing the development of Stalker 2, the head of the company GSC Game World thus publicly subscribed to the fact that it has a sufficient number of professional game developers who work in the same team. People from the old state of the company would not be able to move from the development of the next "Cossacks" to RPG shooter, so most likely Sergey Grigorovich recruited new staff for such a large and expensive project. STALKER 2 must keep the competition, what to do even in 2018, given the presence of all-complex advanced games in terms of graphics and physics is difficult, and if we talk about 2021, so in General only with full confidence.
What will be the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2
It will be all the same RPG in the first person, and the basic intuitively mastered skills of players in the first trilogy of S. T. A. L. K. E. R. will be useful this time. Innovations will affect the graphics "engine" of the game, the physical model of the behavior of objects and other in-game components that will correspond to the new time. Dynamic lighting, thanks to the modern Unreal Engine 4 and high-resolution textures, coupled with good optimization will create an atmosphere of "Zone" in every piece of the game world, which will dynamically change depending on the external conditions.
Yes, the plot of the new installment of the iconic franchise will razvorachivatsya in the vast the same the Chernobyl exclusion zone, where lawlessness prevails, and abnormal nature and events that can in a moment destroy the plans of any serious grouping.
The game world "in the second Stalker" is much more informative than in the previous parts of the series, it is great and seamless. Pulling up the picture in the game, the developers will try to support the plot of the game at the proper level, most likely linking it with the stories of the games of the past series of parts. S. T. A. L. K. E. R. 2 will show players new locations, among which, if we consider the idea of developing a new Stalker of previous years, will be the radar "Arc", the city of Chernobyl and ChNPP.
To the delight of players
The game industry has put on stream the creation of many worthy things, whether it is a multiplayer alternative to the story mode or the official support of mods and Addons from the gaming community. Creating games is a business, and the business should be successful and have a large audience of fans, so the obvious solution is to implement all your favorite multiplayer (network game mode) in S. T. A. L. K. E. R. 2, as it is done in Survarium (a game from Vostok Games, the development team previously working in GSC Game World), where players can fight not only in the usual PVP, but also pass joint tasks.
The project will either as another cultural event of mankind, or in any way.
