Bit over eager aren't you?
Last I heard it was going to be yet another battle royale BUT WITH SLAVGUNS AND MUTIES AND ANOMALIES, ANON.
Someone slap the goon with the monkey's paw already.
For you, I've never played a Stalker game myself, so I'm not all that interested in the news of a new game.
I've been wanting to play one for a while though, just to see what the fuss is all about. Just not got around to it yet.
Thats a different game IIRC. This is by GSC world and not the former devs of the STALKER 2 they canceled in 2012.
It's a generic looter shooter filled with fetch quest and slav memes.
It's basically worse E.Y.E without everything that made E.Y.E cool.
You are a day late. It was already discussed to death earlier
>I have no taste but I must eat
>memelands slav edition
>Stalkan is anything like memelands
>Implying you have taste if you can't enjoy Stalkan
Not an argument
>no content to rehash
>2021 release date
2025 calling it now
Do you even know what are you talking about?
Wasn't GSC just Sergei and his yes men and cocksuckers after the game first got cancelled?
One thread was enough. You're all getting cancer-tier hyped over nothing.
Its one slowpoke faggot
game will probably be shit anyways this is CY+3, there's no telling what kind of cancer CY+6 will bring
I don't care about STALKER that much but EYE is dogshit in comparison.
Yeah, but i know it overhayped a bit, when think.
Also where is first thread.
t: too lazy look into catalog
Are you saying I have bad taste for wanting to play Stalker?
Is just a fucking teaser. How fucking fresh are you?
They've been "making" a sequel to the series for a good while now and until we see gameplay footage and get more details there's little reason to be excited. Plus considering the average budget needed to make a multi-platform release these days is likely that they had to sell out to some publisher and it will be calling the shots.
Also, remember this is GSC we're talking about
Ebin cuckhan filename meme fellow reddditor, upboated
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a PC-only game, anon
I forgot about that episode.
>Implying that will be the case for the sequel
You know that won't be the case anon
They wanted to do a multiplat for Stalker 2. In fact Stalker 1 was going to be a multiplat. I'm speaking from memory so take this with a grain of salt.
the earlier iteration that was shut down was designed from ground up to be a console title
ppl say the engine was horribly optimized (X-Ray 2.0)
i guess with this reboot they will do something different, rumors its UE4
>In fact Stalker 1 was going to be a multiplat
I want to fuck that nazi.
>This is by GSC world
That's not a good thing, the guy who owns them gutted them a while back
How far i know, gsc has no experience on multi-platform games, so basically this >>14799910
>earlier iteration that was shut down was designed from ground up to be a console title earlier iteration that was shut down was designed from ground up to be a console title
And it was thrown down the shitter just for that. Sure they had production issues and lack of funding, but another reason Sergey cancelled the project was because he didn't like the quality. So rather than us getting a shitty Stalker sequel he chose to just kill it right then and there and try again in the future.
And the future is now, Stalker
That or some Russian bombed his garage recently
>Sergey was the good guy all along
>implying Sergey didn't just run out of Pepsi and needed some cash right now
From a business perspective these days there's no reason for a game to be exclusive to either platform unless MS/Sony/Nintendo are the ones paying for the development or it's a genre like RTS or the devs can't afford to port.
They don't but when they announced STALKER 2 in 2010 they said it was going to be multi-platform.
No, fuck you for defending him, the game was thrown in the shitter because he didn't know what the fuck he wanted to do with STALKER 2 and when financial troubles came he closed the studio and had part of the staff unpaid for months even though they still wanted to make the game and were trying to secure funding for it from outside investors but he said no.
The reason the series has been dead for so long is because of him.
How about Battle Royal Stalker?
With monster NPCs and anomalies for extra content? But instead of killing circle you have The Monolith. First players don't know where it is. As times passes area of possible location reduces around Monolith hidden underground or some building. Player can activate Monolith to charge it (3-5 minutes first time and player can do anything during this time, other players get announcement). when it is charged player who charged it can reactive Monolith to get Wish and win the round (everybody else dies). If charged Monolith is reactivated by other players it recharges for them, Monolith does faster and faster depending on the number of previous activations.
Why do you purposely try to make people mad?
I wasn't defending him, it's just that he has a smug little face and there's potential for Sergerypostiing here.
>From a business perspective these days there's no reason for a game to be exclusive
Businesses are retarded and if this fucker wants Stalker 2 to succeed then he better make it a fucking PC exclusive or else I'll be really fucking pissed. Stalker on consoles is guaranteed to be uber-trash. Keep your shitty nuhardware away from my franchise.
I'm also afraid that Sergey will fuck up and unironically use Unreal Engine 4 for this. Sergey Galyonkin who's an employee for Epic Games teases UE4 and that's fucking horrible and if GSV knows what's best they better stay away from that shit. The last thing I want to see is a Stalker game running on Tencent-owned chink engine that runs like garbage and hasn't produced a single good game so far.
>battle royal stalker
please no , its to pure to be tainted like that
>Unreal Engine 4
This is so fucked up, it might just happen.
Speaking of Sergey, do you guys remember his pathetic facebook posts from a while back? About him being this really, passionate programmer who just wanted to make games and how everyone just mistreats him despite his "sacrifices"?
Yep he slave driver who wanna guys work on stalker2 for free for idea only.
you have to at least admit that it would work
the entire chernobyl map could work for an actually good battle royal/day z type of game its bound to happen
Of course Stalker 2 is going to be a masterpiece and I trust Sergei, he has proves many times that he knows what he's doing. This franchise is in safe hands and I cannot wait to pre-order his latest addition to this great series known as the dark souls of fps.
Clear sky was kinda team-battle royale shit, and all we know this most worst game in series.
i just want call of chernobyl multiplayer for fuck sake
Some of the maps are nice though.
Play wind of time.
Thank you fellow anonymous poster, I'll be sure to buy this game you speak of.
Very hyped I am
I don't want the game to come to consoles, I want it to embrace the full power of the PC but I'm not naive. Just look at the numbers, the game is slated for a 2021 release, let's say the game has been in development for a year at best giving it a 4-5 year dev cycle by the time it comes out, not counting delays.
Who's paying for this dev time? Sergei? Not fucking likely. Let's not forget that STALKER is a big game and the money required to make decent graphics on current hardware is nothing to scoff at.
Plus GSC hasn't made anything of worth in years or ran a kickstarter so unless Sergei has been saving all his allowances to self fund this game he's most likely at the mercy of some publisher who's going to want the game to come to consoles.
Yes, that's why I was mad at >>14800089 but I guess I took the bait
>the dark souls of fps
MY FUCKING SIDES
CoC is dead, lad. We're coming up on two years since the last full release, and a fucking year since the last beta release. If you've been paying attention to the bitbucket, work hasn't just slowed to a crawl, it has slowed to a trickle.
Ray of Hope maybe? How is that going?
Well, to be honest by 2021 new consoles will probably be released.
even shittier and with less games than these ones
>CoC is dead
Don't be retarded
Next you're going to tell me that CWP isn't dead either.
>See stalker 2 threads
Hmm… I should play CoC again, it's been a while, I wonder why I stopped. It was a lot of fun.
>Take 5 steps
Ahh, now I remember.
>Comparing CWP to CoC
You have the IQ of a nigger
>both worked on by poison pill darryl
>both started promising before falling off a cliff right around the same time
The only difference at this point is he deleted or hid the CWP repo. See you next year when we still haven't seen another release and you're swearing up and down that it's not dead yet.

Check what I found. Yesterday Epic Games (UE4) released a video contest showing off Photogrammetry for a new game set in Chernobyl, made by some polish studio. Is it just pure coincidence, or perhaps there's some Kojima-tier falseflags going on here and (((Farm 51))) is actually GSC Game World under disguise?
Embed related "gameplay" or more accurate just fucking walking at 45 minute mark
Interesting. Could we try to send the video to Sergei?
It's not a game, it's not new, and Farm 51 has nothing to do with GSC.
>How about Battle Royal Stalker?
Many have, which is how I even discovered it. His Facebook post is being spammed with questions, mostly in russian. This gets me thinking, how will S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 look visually? Will they use their own engine? Will they go with UE4? Is the production bar set high at all? Considering that Stalker alone had already sold over 4 million copies back in 2010 and Cossacks 3 was a success, there's some hope that GSC has enough money to deliver. I really want to see some gameplay.
So it was just a coincidence after all. Good, that's really good. That demo looked like garbage. All these high-poly assets and yet the textures were muddy, colors washed out and shitty lod. Also ran like shit. 15-20fps even on the developer's "high-end" laptop.Hopefully GSC uses some kind of new X-Ray engine, and not UE.
I played Survarium a lot. On one hand the engine is pretty much an Xray offshot, movement feels stalkerish, gunplay is decent and the environments are pretty good. On the other, it's probably going to be a grindfest, it's going to be P2Win, best case only so in the higher tiers, and I expect the dynamic anomalies to look awful.
>Hopefully GSC uses some kind of new X-Ray engine, and not UE.
What engine they use on Cossacs3??
I don't know, there hasn't been an official name for it but they have confirmed it's a new "lightweight" engine made by GSC.
PLEASE KEEP YOUR CANCEROUS HYPEFAGGOTRY TO ONE THREAD
Shilling is not ok just because slavs are doing it. >>14795643
Ok, mods please lock thread.
Try STALKER COC and play around with it, it's different than the regular games but it's also free and has all the maps and shit.
I felt like encoding this probably not a good job, but whatever. Enjoy.
I guess this is the STALKER thread so any suggestions for COC variants/mods to play? I'm mostly waiting for Dead Air now, was playing CoM/Last Day before I dropped it mainly because I reached Yantar and there was no way to stop the hallucinations while inside the underground which was fucking annoying.
Took care of some of the shit threads, it's scary how much of a difference a few shitty threads make.
did this thread bump or is it having issues
I want an actual feeling of the different factions actually doing what their goal is, simulated in the game. As in, if i want to reach the monolith, i actually have to actively try and hinder the other factions from reaching it.
So you sort of have a hidden timer in the game.
I really want to play as the Mercs tbh
I want to get rid of the retarded story altogether and just get a sandbox where you go stalkan in the zone and are chiefly motivated by what all the Stalkers should be: making money. The fact that artifacts sold for pennies and the economy was fucked made money pretty much worthless by mid game in all three games, and that's a damn shame.
Nigger the story is great and the potential is massive. All they have to do is stop focusing on Strelok and his autism adventures so much and instead focus on the average stalker life or even Mercenaries. Removing the lore would be retarded.
>All they have to do is stop focusing on Strelok and his autism adventures
That's what I meant by the story. I of course love the lore – it's one of the best parts of the game
Tying up Chernobyl disaster with Roadside Picnic and Stalker IP is stroke of genius
This good news, I've just recently started playing SoC with Autumn Aurora 2 mod and been having a blast with it. My only and big complaint though is that even with the mod, its buggy as shit. Streklok got stuck near the burner tunnel after I risked my ass saving him from mercenaries, and I had to kill him for the flash drive. I had plenty of fights where the AI would just stand there and let me shoot them in the face, same with allies too. Right now I can't even progress in the Dark Valley, everytime I save it gets corrupted and I have to revert to a save before I enter the valley. I completed the mission twice without dying but everytime I try to leave, my game crashes and I have to start all over again. Fucking slavs somehow made a game buggier than Bethesda, but at least they made a much better game.
Too much retconing with the monolith shit. The game would have to be much more alien and strange than it is. Not that it'd be a bad thing mind you.
You people don't realise what this means
>New stock of IRL stalker gear and patches
Sign me the fuck up.
Is Sergei still a cunt? This is important.
Now now… what a terrible thing to say! Sergei Grigorovich™ is a great passionate person who makes great computer games. Sure he may have accidentally made some little mistakes in the past but that doesn't matter because he is a whole new person now filled with passion and new ideas! I trust Sergei with this franchise and I cannot wait to see his marvelous work! I will start saving up some money to pre-order his great upcoming computer game S.T.A.L.K.E.R.™ 2!
I cannot wait for Sergposting to replace Toddposting.

Now that I think of it, Atomic Heart is clearly very inspired by S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Roadside Picnic. Is Soviet science fiction emerging in video games now?
Atomic Heart inspired at firs place by Bioshok and maybe Singularity, and only then stalkan.
For some reason I just know there's going to be porn of those robots, there's always porn of things like that.
Never trust slav-jew but since we haven't seen anything from the game yet it's possible they won't fuck it up
I liked how the setting was presented in this tabletop RPG they released way back based on it. In brief
>The zone is too hostile for settlements to survive inside
>Stalker camps are usually set on the outskirts of the Zone
>Sneaking in and out of the Zone's perimeter under the nose of the military snipers and/or the souped up 'Institute' scientist offshoot faction is crucial
>Shallow artifacts close to the border sell for cheap, but enough to allow gear progression
>Artifacts from deep inside the zone are a bitch to haul (radioactive, anomaly magnets, the works) on top of the inherent risk getting to them, but sell for a small fortune, encouraging repeat trips and stash making
>Haggling and finding the right buyer for the right artifact is considered
>Anomalies are too hardcore (allowed your pinky finger to drift into the anomaly? Too bad it's stuck there forever bud) but could work if toned down, or simply using the anomalies already on the games
>Doesn't have much in the way of mutants, again the mutants we already have would work fine
FUCK. FUUUUCK. FUUUUUUCK. I FUCKING HATE MODERN VIDEO GAMES. I FUCKING HATE IT. I HATE IT ALL. GOD FUCKING DIRTMUNCHING SLAVNIGGER THAT USES A DEAD IGUANA TO SCRATCH HIS BLOATED TESTICLES. I PRAY THAT RUSSIA FUCKING NUKES YOU, YOU FUCKING ROTTEN WORM.
I just wanted to stalk in the zone again.
This better be a shitty joke.
==FALSE ALARM.== It's just satire from a russian stalker VK group. I have taken the fucking bait all the way to the stomach.
Oh thank God, I almost had a fucking aneurism.
I feel like one of those people who falls for Onion articles.
The part were they mention purchasable campfire music should have made it more obvious in hindsight.
More accurate than other newspapers these days.
Having to buy new characters, potentially for real money settled it for me. Not even Kotick would be that greedy.
There probably is already (if not, it's because we don't know the search terms for what they are yet)
What is this (((press)))? Google cant find single word wrom him, except that from twitter.
Its huge bulshit.
With all the goons comming out of the woodwork assuring that the game will be terrible and to give up, what should Stalker 2 be?
Stalker CoC on a new engine?
Going with tradition and making it the same game as CoP but with minor tweaks, additions, and a new story?
A radically new expirience, but with the added risk of GSC fucking shit up?
Just a big asset pack; making it a modder's sandbox?
A h-game where you stealth-rape mutants and Freedumb soldiers?
Just finished this meme game Stalker: COC which you people love so much, what a boring ending, and I still have no clue what the fuck this was all about.
COC doesn't really have a story. It's more of a sandbox/modding thing. You dumb ass.
>Fugg what I'm doing. This game must be shit.
>COC which you people love so much, what a boring ending
Congrats for outing yourself as a redditor and confirming that you never played STALKER. Kindly kill yourself.
I just finished it an hour ago reached the monolith inside Chernobyl after staying in Prypiat for no more than 30 minutes, a fun game although the beginning was terrible.
It has no ending you retard. It's literally a freeplay version of Stalker with all the maps from all games.
"Emerging"? It's about as popular a theme now as it's ever been.
>I played this fan-made modding base - I can't believe that this is supposed to be the trilogy you people have been so fond of all these years
You're so fucking stupid holy shit, I wish I could fucking curb stomp your face and remove your genes from the genetics pool
Pretty sure story mode has different endings, my man.
I bet he doesn't even realize what he said that makes it obvious he's an idiot.
PEPsi. It started as snake oil that gives you Pep.
Wouldn't that be Pepsiiiiiiiiiiiii?
Next time read the fucking ModDB page of COC you nigger.
>this meme game Stalker: COC
I think a multiplayer STALKER would be pretty badass, but not like that. That (((monetization))) is disgusting beyond nigh all compare. Luckily its fake.
anyone got a torrent for stalker? i want to play stalker coc
Are you fucking shitting me?
You need CoP for CoC. Check the im not telling you, you dipshit
Wew this will be the first game after some 10 years that I will be actually looking forward to. Well maybe Witcher.
Slavs are the saviors of mankind.
>For you, I've never played a Stalker game myself, so I'm not all that interested in the news of a new game.
Then why are you posting faggot?
>playing the guitar in an exoskeleton with no pick
I hope they get rid of healthpacks and radiation, such redundant mechanics, along with reapir/upgrading, like just give us the shit we're already getting instead of filling all the emptyness with fucking scavenging and walking.
>S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will come out before Gunslinger and RoH
what the fuck are you doing, thats the heart of the game
Ignore the shitposter, talk about mods instead.
All those angry replies, simply cause I accidently (it's the absolute truth, not trolling here) wrote COC instead of SOC.
I didn't even knew there was a mod called Call of Chernobyl before I read the bloodthirsty replies politely telling me to remove myself from the gene pool.
Oh yes, and Clear Skies is even worse with the grenade spam, bullet sponge enemies, horrible gun accuracy, bleeding to death even after falling from 3 meters, etc etc.
>in b4 get gud
No i won't, I'll mod this shit instead to make it playable.
I'm not gonna hype for this, especially in this day and age where most devs want to get a larger audience and that pepsi cock loving faggot sergei still owns the IP. I'm just gonna sit here and pretend the sequel will never exist while enjoying the fuck out of a good game because it will never be recreated the same way again.
Is that the one with the furries?
and CoC 1.5
and TaZ 2.0
Don't worry anon, mistakes happen. I forgive you!
Oh. Then it's understandable. Stalker has a lot of Russian philosophies and concepts that a lot of people in the West never caught on to. Read Roadside Picnic or watch the Stalker movie to get more grasp on it. SOC has on ok story but it is confusion as fuck the first time you get into it.
Also if you're gonna replay Clear Sky at least do it with the Clear Sky complete mod. It fixes a lot of the common issue that you mention. Clear Sky was rushed as fuck and quite a mess in a lot of ways.
I'm playing it for the first time, and yes the mod did wonders to the gameplay, the enemy no longer throw super precise grenades at me (amen to that) and they also improved the guns accuracy so now I can shoot what I'm aiming at instead of the shots going to random directions even when I'm firing single shots.
It's a good game, but hell the game punishes you especially at the start with the shitty guns that couldn't hit a barn's door if you pointed at it.
>l those angry replies, simply cause I accidently (it's the absolute truth, not trolling here) wrote COC instead of SOC.
>No i won't
You're either baiting or came from reddit. The complete mods are everything but complete. They turn the games into casual garbage and remove everything that could be even slightly challenging. Everyone hates it with the exception of newfags and redditors who utterly unironically call S.T.A.L.K.E.R. the "Dark Souls of FPS games".
Its ok to be nigger, anon.
Oh yes anon, it's so fun and challenging when the enemy have perfect accuracy with grenades even if you're 50 meters or more away from, it's so fun to play against human bullet sponges that take a full clip of 5.56mm to die, so fun to die after one shot after reloading because the whole clip wasn't enough the enemy.
Very challenging, who doesn't love to respawn dozens of times because your headshot was not registered and you ended up dead for the 11th time in a gunfight ?
This post reminds me of my Last Day experiencies.
>Human bullet sponges
We all knew you weren't playing on Master but why did you have to go and confirm it?
>still believing the master increases damage meme
>Its ok to be nigger, anon.
When was this?
>They turn the games into casual garbage and remove everything that could be even slightly challenging.
I know, but I don't think that the Complete Mod is a bad way to start with Clear Sky for a first run. That's really all, Clear Sky I have only completed 2 times but barely got any enjoyment of it. I don't it's hard but it is a weird cluster fuck when it comes to the weapons.
Just to add the first run was vanilla and the second with the Complete Mod.
I'm playing Clear Skies faggot, I already finished Shadow of Chernobyl.
you should do exactly the opposite, play Complete Mod first
Clear Sky is a fucking mess
>Clear Sky is a fucking mess
>SOC has on ok story but it is confusion as fuck the first time you get into it.
I mean, not really.
I remember in the beginning I was absolutely clueless, granted, but I picked up the story just fine, the game is fairly straightforward.
"Your goal is to kill Strelok" isn't exactly something you can be confused at.
>this fucker can't get a single headshot
It increases chances of getting a kill. Not damage. Stay mad nigger.
Just finished Clear Skies, the end of the game was shit and buggy as hell with clear shots not registering in that faggot boss, I thought I was playing a crappy FPS instead of a RPG game, hopefully Call of Chernobyl is better than this crap, I'm never touching it again.
Btw, I never found a single artifact in the whole game, I heard you had to use that radar shit to find it, anyway you can finish the game without any.
Theres Call of Pripyat left.
It fixes CS mechanics and progression while being less buggy, but only has three big maps for exploration.
Artifact hunt is like CS and gear/weapon modding is less shit.
I liked the weapon/armor mod in CS, it was one of the few things that were good in that game compared to SOC.
Hopefully Call of Pripyat can be enoyed without any mod, SOC was tough but it could still be played, while vanilla CS was absolute shit.
Everybody knows CS is shit though
Did you even get the REAL ending, fag?
>I thought I was playing a crappy FPS instead of a RPG game
I have bad news for you. Stalker indeed is not rpg series.
>Slavs are the saviors of mankind.
I have good news for ya
Anon, it's "Придбайте мою гру, /v/"
