One game that caught everyone by surprise at the Xbox Games Fest was the sequel of the PC only title S.T.A.L.K.E.R. After being just a PC only title for so long, the sequel S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 finally comes to console. The unique combination of first-person shooter, immersive sim and horror is back. With unprecedented scale, advanced graphics, freedom of choices, and the thickest atmosphere of a deadly adventure, it’s going to be the ultimate S.T.A.L.K.E.R. experience. Now it may resemble or give off a vibe to the Metro games. However, this Russian post-apocalyptic survival title handles things a bit differently in its immersive universe. Check out the trailer for S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytDioRTWtFQ Along with the first trailer, there are several pieces of info to be disclosed:
- For the first time in the franchise, The Zone will be presented to the players as a seamless open-world environment — one of the biggest one to date.
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will feature a branching story with multiple endings. Players will have to constantly make uneasy choices with tough consequences — some of them changing the world itself.
- The unique simulation system called A-Life from the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. trilogy is getting on a new level with A-Life 2.0. With different behavior of characters and mutants, the Zone changes constantly. Every playthrough will be unique with lots of things happening every moment, even if the player doesn’t witness them directly.
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise is making its console debut. Along with PC, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is coming first to Xbox Series X as a console launch exclusive. The console version of the sequel will also enter Game Pass on day one.
