S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Add-on & Sequel?

GSC Game World is apparently working on a new S.T.A.L.K.E.R. add-on called S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat as well as a full-fledged sequel to their irradiated first-person shooter. This is according to rough English translations on ClanBase and the TTLG Forums of comments made in a Russian-language chat with GSC Game World's Sergey Grigorovitch. A question asking if the April "Call of Pripyat" entry on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. calendar was an April Fools' joke was answered with the revelation that this is the name of a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. add-on that they expect to release this autumn. He also apparently says they are working on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. Thanks Kincaid.

"A bit" unpolished? Clear Sky was a total pile of dog shit, even half a dozen patches later. I never ran into many bugs in the original.
I played it from the day it launched on Steam and found it to be very stable. I came across one bug that crashed to desktop but there was a workaround on the forums and it was fixed in a later patch. I'm not saying that was the case for other people but my experience was very good. Performance was a bit lacking but that improved with the patches. Despite its flaws I still rate it very highly, much more so than games like Crysis or Call Of Duty.

This would make a better console game.

WTF indeed...Jesus fucking Christ stick to your cursed bedamned console. Don't try to drag one of the last good pc games into your shitty consoley achievement whorehouse. We don't need more of your shitty ports.

FFS...I could slap the shit out of some console bitch right now...

Put it on the Atari 2600 console already dammit. Jeez. I loved the game but had to drop the resolution to 180x120. I can't stand games that aren't compatible with my single button joystick.

I'm guessing it's going to be another stand alone expansion like Clear Sky was.
Clear Sky was never an expansion, standalone or otherwise - it was a prequel. That's why I questioned the news about is being an "add-on". It doesn't concern me because I have both games and I'll likely grab it anyway - the STALKER games have real character, even if they are a bit unpolished.

I just hope that the rumour of it using CryEngine 2 is nonsense as despite its flaws I still prefer the Clear Sky engine.

stalker is good stuff, if a bit unwieldy at times... it actually reminds me alot of 80-90s sim type games, old DOS shit like Midwinter or Terminator... the game world has a sense of wide open, yet oppressive solitude that carries really well in this genre

its got way more 'character' than most games ive played in years

which is why its so unfortunate the engine is such a lumbering hog plagued by infestations of bugs

i waited till the clear sky patch came out before picking it up, just started into the game actually last week - so far im enjoying it, and it does seem better than the first
 
Go forth, and kill!

Way back when, I heard that alongside the release of Clear Sky they'd release a major patch for the original game that would fix a whole lot of things. Thus I decided to wait for that patch before spending any time on the game. Has this patch ever materialized?

I refuse to write it with the periods. I call it Stalker or STALKER if I feel generous.

And I'm with Hump. Stalker is an immersive game, a diamond in the rough in the same way Far Cry 2 is a polished glass bead.

What, you don't like explaining Esteeayeellkayeeare to everyone?

no i dont like explaining and typing it out every time i find it is a pain is the arse to be honest it in fairness it does make its name stand out which im sure has helped it sell a few additional copies but if it is meant as a sales marketing technique then thats even worse crass and cheap imho

(Wow, actually using Zero Punctuation is nasty!)

SACRILEGE! You are a heathen, and should be burned at the stake!

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. has been the only game I've played in recent years that did not feel like a dumbed down piece of shit console game. You want a console game go play Mario or Halo, want to play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. go buy a decent video card. Shit, I just picked up a EVGA GTS 250 that plays both games great for only $150. I played both previously with a ATI 3850 well enough.

This news is music to my ears, a concerto, more S.T.A.L.K.E.R. bliss.

Bugs or no bugs, both games were one of the most immersive gaming experiences I've ever had. Bring on the next batch!

Maybe this will be the one to run without game breaking bugs. Clear Sky was an abortion.

Dammit. I can't (and won't) run any more Stalker games on my PC. Put it on console already. Jeez. I loved the game but had to drop the resolution. This would make a better console game.

"Is this an add-on to Shadow Of Chernobyl or Clear Sky?"

I'm guessing it's going to be another stand alone expansion like Clear Sky was.

Wow, just wow. STALKER is one of the last true PC shooters.

(edit)

My god, when I come back to it, it's even more offensive on second look!

I wish they'd drop the stupid dots already. I don't have a clue what they stand for nor do I care - and I'm sure most other Stalker players are the same. It's a stupid backronym that everyone hates typing, let it go.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R = Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killers, Explorers and Robbers.

I agree that it's kind of stupid. Stalker makes sense on it's own without being a ridiculous acronym.
