Developer GSC Game World plans to drop the second follow-up to the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. this October in North America. Dubbed Call of Pripyat, this upcoming and stand-alone title (think Clear Skies) will push players deeper into the universe’s story, specifically within the confines of the busted-up Zone center. What awaits people in this place? Hooded old men with magical shields and some sort of pox.
A lengthy teaser for the title was released yesterday afternoon. A hovering camera lingers on the environment of the title for a good clip, slowly revealing a maze of buildings and even some green stuff. Eventually, the focus is shifted to the protagonist as he shuffles through a dilapidated building with some sort of old-man-midget-monster following him.
Call of Pripyat seems like it will be aS.T.A.L.K.E.R.-ass S.T.A.L.K.E.R. title. Are any of you thinking about picking this up when it hits this fall? Or are you S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'ed out?
