S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Rumor Control

GSC Game World (thanks Frans) has a post up responding to post-E3 rumors about S.T.A.L.K.E.R., the frequently delayed first-person shooter. The post denies that the game's signature A-Life AI and the requirement that characters must eat have been removed, while confirming that voluntary sleep has been removed and that use of vehicles in the game has been limited.

Eating and sleeping was originally linked into the story and environment. I seem to remember them giving day and night cycles which spawned different mobs. Night was more mutant creatures and day may have more stalkers about competing for loot etc.

So if you were scared of the dark or didn't want to risk coming up against tougher mobs you could find a safe spot to sleep through the night.

Eating was just an extra over the boring old medpack. Vitamins in certain foods aiding you in your struggle to survive, or getting over, the effects of the radioactive areas in game.

This is just from what I remember from a preview feature in some random PC mag a couple of years ago
