S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat may only be three years old but at the time of release it was already looking dated, mainly as it was still re-using assets and the engine from the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game. Now a modding team is ready to release a full overhaul of CoP entitled Misery 2.0.
This nine-minute-long trailer shows off a lot of beatiful scenery (make sure you watch past the 2:20 mark, otherwise you'd think all S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games were set inside dreary Eastern European buildings) and the new dynamic weather systems. There's also big changes to the inventory, faction system, upgrades to the guns and armour, new mutant designs, and more.
I have to be honest, the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. formula was wearing thin by the time Call of Pripyat was released but this Misery 2.0 mod has me interested in giving the game another shot. I've been itching for a full modding project to put my new PC through its paces but I'll have to wait until the 30th of July to give Misery 2.0 a try.
