stalker_sar.jpg S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, previously known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Oblivion Lost is due for release 23/03/2007, I’ve been waiting for and watching the development of this game for 3 to 4 years.

If you haven’t hear of this game, you can take a look here http://www.stalker-game.com and here http://www.stalker-videogame.com

It uses a Game Engine called X-Ray that has been developed just for this game and has been the main reason for the delay, no matter how much THQ pushed for a release the developers wanted it to be everything they set out to do and more and hopefully bug free.

To give you a quick idea of the game here’s the blurb :

“In S.T.A.L.K.E.R., the player assumes the identity of a “Stalker”, or illegal explorer/artifact gatherer, in “The Zone”. “The Zone” is the location of an alternate reality version of the Chernobyl Power Plant after its 1986 explosion which contaminated the surrounding area with radiation, and caused strange otherworldly changes in localized fauna, flora and even the laws of physics.”

So from March 23rd onwards that is were I shall be
