Stalker 2 – Heart of Chornobyl doesn’t have a release date yet. But that’s understandable, given the circumstances. The Ukraine-based development team is currently facing some external stability problems, nothing too crazy. Just an invasion by the world’s second largest military power.
Balancing game development with a militaristic defense of their homeland (no, this isn’t a joke) is no easy task. But it’s a challenge they take on nonetheless, having released a trailer for their upcoming title.
This trailer is called “Enter the Zone”, and features a character, well, entering ‘the zone’. It gives off a haunting, supernatural vibe that is unmistakably Stalker.
“Chornobyl Exclusion Zone has changed dramatically after the second massive explosion in year 2006. Violent mutants, deadly anomalies, warring factions have made the Zone a very tough place to survive. Nevertheless, artifacts of unbelievable value attracted many people called S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s, who entered the Zone for their own risk striving to make a fortune out of it or even to find the Truth concealed in the Heart of Chornobyl.” Reads the game’s Steam store page.
