Return to the Zone: the first official S.T.A.L.K.E.R. trailer has been released. 2

After more than a decade of silence, the legendary STALKER series has received an official sequel. The company GSC Game World, the creator of the game, announced the new part back in 2018, but convincing evidence of development has emerged only now. The presentation of the trailer took place during the Microsoft Xbox Series X Games Showcase, and this is no coincidence - the game is announced as exclusive content for the Xbox Series X.

The game will also be available on PC and Xbox Game Pass, a little later, but the main bet is still on the next generation consoles. This is where the sophisticated graphical effects and richness of varied lighting shown in the trailer can be realized. The picture as a whole makes an impression - instead of a clumsy and seemingly cut out of a pile of pixels, now the Zone appears as a detailed, lively, and even more frightening place.

In terms of gameplay, the developers promise a "unique combination" of FPS, immersive sim and horror. That is exactly what millions of players fell in love with the first part for. GSC Game World hinted at the largest open world game world to date and an epic storyline with a number of independent endings. No release dates have been announced, but for now, you can admire the cinematic trailer.
