It’s been over two years since GSC Game World announced that it had begun development on a sequel to its critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic sandbox FPS, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., but the Ukraine-based developer has begun lifting the veil on the mysterious title. Following the release of a cinematic 4K trailer over the summer, we now have a short but sweet glimpse of what S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will actually look like courtesy of a teaser shared by IGN.

“Get your first in-engine look at the first-person sequel S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 and its Zone through the eyes of its main protagonist, Skif,” the publication wrote. “As developer GSC Game World puts it, this teaser represents ‘how the game actually feels: fast-paced change of scenery, ominous landscapes and the ever-present feeling of an inevitable danger accompanied by a barely-distinguishable guitar soundtrack.'”

While the teaser doesn’t provide any clues as to where the story is headed, it does suggest that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will be a gorgeous experience. According to GSC Game World, players can expect one of the biggest open worlds to date, as well as an epic, non-linear story with multiple endings.

“The game is coming to PC and launching first on Xbox Series X as a console launch exclusive,” GSC Game World noted. “S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will also enter the Xbox Game Pass service on Xbox Series X on day one.”

  1. “In engine” doesn’t mean anything to me. I’ll get excited when I see some real gameplay footage.

    Yeah, this has become a common thing nowadays. It’s meaningless. It’s as if trying to sell food by saying it was cooked in the same kitchen.

    Stalker is another game that I was never into. I’ve tried the leaked alpha of the original, but never actually played any of the finished games. There were just too many versions, with part of the fans swearing on one the rest the other, it’s all too confusing.

  3. My mouth is watering for a new stalker series. I still enjoy the dated old games. Graphics are of concern but not of the highest concern for me here.
