So you thought S.T.A.L.K.E.R was done?? Well fans will have quite a few new locations to explore in the upcoming Call of Pripyat. And as one might expect from the title, many of them center on the real life district of Pripyat.
“We will present a complete set of new locations in Call of Pripyat,” public relations head Oleg Yavorsky told Rock, Paper, Shotgun. “This includes the Pripyat river basin and its rusty fleet standing still for over 20 years now, the Kopachi village completely buried after the accident, Jupiter factory located on the outskirts of Pripyat, the railway station Yanov, and, to crown it all – an entire district of Pripyat, modeled in its real scope.”
“I think Call of Pripyat will be the most photo-realistic, and hence, atmospheric S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game of all three.”
Call of Pripyat has been previously confirmed to be a sequel to the original Shadow of Chernobyl, with 2008’s Clear Sky being a prequel. It will feature an improved interface and a new A-Life system, which includes features such as the day and night cycle affecting the behavior of monsters and NPCs. Look for Call of Pripyat this fall.
