GSC Game World’s upcoming S.T.A.L.K.E.R. title, Call of Pripyat, takes place immediately after the events in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl. The story will focus on the inside of the zone -- a place where no one really wants to be. Pripyat.
And it at least appears that GSC is taking the recreation of Pripyat seriously. In an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun, PR director Oleg Yavorsky revealed that Call of Pripyat would have several new locations, all faithfully modeled after Prypiat.
“We will present a complete set of new locations in Call of Pripyat,” Yavorsky said.
“This includes the Pripyat river basin and its rusty fleet standing still for over 20 years now, the Kopachi village completely buried after the accident, Jupiter factory located on the outskirts of Pripyat, the railway station Yanov, and, to crown it all – an entire district of Pripyat, modeled in its real scope,” he continued.
“I think Call of Pripyat will be the most photo-realistic, and hence, atmospheric S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game of all three.”
Whoa. Sounds serious. Hopefully GSC lightens the mood with, uh, dinosaurs or something. Yeah, that’ll do the trick.
