S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat has finally been announced, and yes, it does in fact involve a large-scale operation going horribly wrong, and revolves around you coming in to figure out why while trying not to get yourself killed.

Taking place right after the ending moments of Shadow of Chernobyl, Call of Pripyat will add things like a new interface, sleep functionality, more terrifying creatures, and additional characters. Y'know, the usual.

See that, uh ... thing up there? Does that or does that not vaguely remind you of the dog with a human head from the movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers? I'll tell you what, if there's one monster that never ceases to scare the crap out of me in games, it's the ones that resemble dogs.

Anyway, Call of Pripyat is headed for an autumn release this year on PC, but the name is a working title, so there's always a chance it could change long before then. Hit the break for the full press release.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat announced

GSC Game World is glad to announce a new project in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series – S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat (working title) for PC.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat will become a third stand-alone game in the highly-acclaimed Survival FPS S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series.

The project is slanted for release in autumn 2009.

The events of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat unfold shortly after the end of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. Having discovered about the open path to the Zone center, the government decides to hold a large-scale military "Fairway" operation aimed to take the CNPP under control.

According to the operation's plan, the first military group is to conduct an air scouting of the territory to map out the detailed layouts of anomalous fields location. Thereafter, making use of the maps, the main military forces are to be dispatched.

Despite thorough preparations, the operation fails. Most of the avant-garde helicopters crash. In order to collect information on reasons behind the operation failure, Ukraine's Security Service send their agent into the Zone center. From now on everything depends on the player.

Destiny has so much lore, it's sad that almost none of it is in the game

In-game, Destiny's story is probably the worst part of the experience. Constant Dinklebot "defense" missions and short exposes during load screens are hardly what I'd call a narrative, but that's what Bungie ended up giving u...more

If you happen to have EA Access, I highly recommend playing Garden Warfare

I keep forgetting about EA Access. Perhaps you can say the same. It's a $4.99-per-month service for Xbox One that gives unlimited access to select games from you-know-who along with other perks like early demos. One of my fav...more
