As with clear sky and call of pripyat, I expect the storyline will be based on the books and short stories written by fans and ceritifed authors. If anyone is interested, I'll elaborate.

Sure, sounds interesting.

I hear it'll come with regenerating health and be dumbed down for console play. I really hope not, even still, console users wont be able to get the stalker experience regardless. I want STALKER 2 to be on xray 2.0 and have the same mechanics as STALKER. KewlCrayon 01:49, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
It's funny how you don't even indicate how cnsole players won't be able to get the experience.
I bet the game will ironically turn out better if people grow a pair and swallow their pride.
As much as I am worried too, I think its still too early to tell. 184.108.40.206 07:52, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
I wont like the STALKER in consoles. That will ruin the STALKER serie and the good reputation of the games; something like the Call of Duty saga, wich have become a stupid game and a copy of Halo. 220.127.116.11 13:17, August 20, 2010 (UTC)SALVA
Damn!Why can't you people stop saying bad things about the consoles man!
You choose what you want to play you know!Also if you say shit about the graphics of the consoles please refer to MGS4 for any further accusation.
and also they are porting it to consoles means more money and better games for our PCs everyone wins
got it?So please just stop saying shit about consoles.18.104.22.168
They're used to it being PC-only. I say we let something as good as S.T.A.L.K.E.R. be available to everyone!
I mean, soft drinks are good, and you don't see anyone keeping other people from drinking one, normally.

Don't b.e so sure about that: Crysis 2's control (no button for leaning, sh*tty usage of numbers for weapon changing), graphic (DX11 comes via patch and so) and physics' (for example: can't play lumberjack with guns, etc) has been dumbed, compared to Warhead, not to mention the appearence of smaller and linear maps. Dragon Age 2's control has been dumped too. /A random stalker fan. 19:59, May 2011/
Is that video related to the game? Is it even an official video? Boredgunner 23:44, August 22, 2011 (UTC)
Yes it is OFFICIAL INFO video. Real Talk Real Info. In the video the develepers are describing on what will be new in stalker 2 :) and i can tell u this, its defently gona be some changes. unfortunately his talking on russian. But i upload it anyway since u can still understand on whats going to be new. Couldnt find subtitles for this video, but im sure it will be up soon translated. new things such as im sure u already know, they are about to remove X-ray and such and make new A-life and so on. New atmosphear and lots more list just goes freaking long. Oleg also said stalker 2 is comming out in year 2012. He also describes that he will gather some ideas from GSC forums, as a part of his project. so people can share there ideas and what they want in this game aswell. He also said that they will improve multyplayer functions, News tell that they will realese outfits as uv seen on my channel, stalker jackets and such board games and even they are prepearing to make some stalker series, in this video they show some of it. and mutch more.
I'm just putting this out here in response to the argument 2 sections above me. Okay?Edit
When it comes to something that'll release on all platforms, it's a wait and see affair.
Obviously the graphics won't be as good as they would on PC, but in most cases of multiplat games today the differences are somewhat subtle. Besides, the PC version is normally developed separately, so there's no reason to be fitsy. Besides, at the base of it, we ALL play the same game.
Here's a video in case my point isn't getting across to you, just watch it the whole way and think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZ-qWCOLNxQ
And no, it's not mine, so don't complain to me. And if you've found anything better, shoot.
I'm not hating on anybody, just so we're clear

Review Vostok Games Developer's Diary 3 (HD)!!Edit
Video Shows some new stuff included the Faction thats is strongly resamblence to the Stalker Faction. AS i said before, Survarium is a cover up for the new stalker 2!!! :D
вродяги = Stalkers in Survarium
Expectations are extremely low Edit
I don't like this "new" STALKER they're making. First of all, change of engine? Seriously? Crytek is the worst engine I ever saw. Why would you want to use a horribly unoptimized engine that was made purely for graphics and not gameplay? It sucks.
X-Ray, yeah, it has some graphics, but they're good enough (not performance-robbing) and they never broke much gameplay, except in Clear Sky, but it wasn't THAT horrible. Wet edges? Sexy. Volumetric smoke and light? Nice! GPU Tessellation? Well alright. What about Crytek? Too many features that makes you wanna fidget with that instead of playing the game yourself.
Why is it that game developers decide to change the engine when this one is already good? So, take Valve for example, their Source engine is actually very bad but when modified it can have great gameplay and stability. Crytek, I don't even know if you're allowed to modify that piece of fecal matter.
X-Ray is a rather versatile engine, and I say they should keep it. Of course, they should make it more stable, no need to abuse graphical features like Crysis 3 will/is do/doing.
If STALKER 2 will ever get released, you better make it worth it with this worthless engine. Bah, I don't think it will be good, this is sadly, the end of the STALKER series and the beginning of the "modern era" games that seriously suck balls for graphics instead of gameplay.

Survarium is just a spiritual successor of the STALKER series, not the actual one. For what it's worth, it look a bit interesting and if I ever get into the Alpha or Beta test, I'll reserve judgement until then.

I'm really sure that the box-art in the template is fan-made, owing to the fact that THQ's one of the companies going to release it, despite the fact that I've read no news that they're even involved with the game's release. SHIELD unit (talk) 14:25, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
