In 1986 the world's most horrific nuclear disaster took place in Chernobyl. After subsequent unexplained explosions in 2006, a military zone is set up preventing access to this area. Stories of huge anomalous energy disturbances and strange sightings within the Zone are rife. Only the foolhardy or insane venture in. After having been found unconscious in the zone, you have become a S.T.A.L.K.E.R., a mercenary paid by scientists and other undisclosed groups, searching for strange artifacts, information and technologies while striving to regain your memory. However, you're not alone: rival S.t.a.l.k.e.r.s., military guards, mutants and deadly anomalous creatures stand in your way as you begin to unravel the mystery of the Zone and your own identity.

Sounds cool. Reckon it's too soon though? I doubt people who had frineds and family in Chernobyl will appreciate them being brought back to life as mutants and zombies.

Sounds kind of like F.E.A.R, I wonder if it's trying to grab some of its popularity. Good concept though. Looking forward to it.

fear is a corridor shooter, like doom or quake.  this game is more like Oblivion with nuclear fallout..  And I've been patiently waiting for 5 years.  Stalker was originally supposed to compete with HL2.

Very true, I just watched documentary on it. Gruesome stuff, I didn't realize the whole thing happened because they were pressed to push for a safety test. Kinda Ironic.

Why Chernobyl and not Agent Orange?  Radioactivity usually leads to death or cancers, whereas Agent Orange caused deformity for years after in Vietnam.

So that game looks pretty sweet.

Any idea of the minimum system specs?

shouldn't be too brutal.  the engine is based on 3-4 year old tech.  think HL2.  It's not a next gen title.

I'm talking about the storyline more then the gameplay, especially the line "...as you begin to unravel the mystery of the Zone and your own identity...."

I've never heard of this game before, but now I'm really looking forward to it. Sweeet.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was a big deal to me back in early 2005. Now, it's been overriden by Crysis, at least according to my anticipatory mind.

Anyone know if this is DX10? Screenies look pretty good, even though it is based on older engine. Anyone have system specs for it?

i doubt it.  this game has been in development since dx9 was new.  If it does fairly well, they might patch it later on to take advantage of some dx10 features, or not.

Been keeping an eye on this one for a while now,  looks very interesting,  like a post nuclear 'Oblivion'  but better....    I like the sound of a working ecology where the creatures are motivated by hunger and hunt each other and the Player.     

Hope they release a Demo.

How can something as nice soundingas "Agent Orange" be a bad thing?

I saw this like a month ago on the Point of Existence Forums. Looks pretty good, even though I dont really enjoy the fakeness if the storyline is good Im ok with it. Examples are Half Life 2 and Far Cry.

Just waiting for package from DABS

I think with those specs the game should run with above average settings
Winfast NF3 250 Series AGP 8 / 450W Power supply
AMD Sempron 2800+ ( OVERCLOCKED )
2 X 1GB RAM DDR 3200 Kingstone + 1GB DDR 3200 PNY  ( 3GB IN TOTAL )
Gainward 7800GS AGPX8 TV Dual DVI Golden Sample 256MB DDR3
Creative Sound Blaster Live 5.1 24BIT
3 HARD DRIVES
Seagate 200GB / Seagate 40GB / Seagate 20GB ( 260GB IN TOTAL )
DVD-RW LG / DVD-RV LITE ON

If there will be problem with DX9 version
I will be able to play on DX8 full settings
At least I hope so

STALKER's been in development a little longer than that. While it's no Duke Nukem, its release date has been pushed forward more than a year.

Although it does look like  fun trhough the open gameplay and what you can actually do, I think people are going to be dissappointed with the graphics side. In 2002 when this thing was first conceived, they were implementing next-gen graphics for that particular time, now though after 5 years I think it'll be BF2 level of graphics, good but nothing special. I could be wrong, and I hope I am, but I think this is where this game is heading.
