The Ukrainian development team GSC Gameworld has released a new trailer for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Hearts of Chornobyl today. While the game has a playable demo at the Xbox booth at Gamescom the game was notably absent during Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live.
This new trailer is called ”Bolts & Bullets trailer” and the descrption for it is this: ”Take a look around! Looks like the same old Zone, at a first glance… Freezed at the time and always transforming, primed to struck at the unforeseeable moment. But don’t let her trick you: She has changed from the last time you were here. And to let the stalker survive, she’ll demand the same! New S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl — Bolts & Bullets Trailer for your preparations to the upcoming adventure.”
This week it’s also been revealed S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Hearts of Chornobyl is releasing in the first quarter of 2024. This means it has been delayed a few months.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Hearts of Chornobyl is set to release on Xbox Series X|S, PC (Windows Store, Steam, Epic Game Store and GOG) and Game Pass.
Looks great to me. So very happy that this was delayed out of 2023. I just need Ubisoft to delay Avatar to 2024 so my December, January and perhaps even February can be empty so I can catch up with whatever 2023 games I have left over.
Back to Stalker 2, again, looks great and yeah, im in!!
I was skeptical from the start that they could achieve what they were showing so I’m not surprised. But damn, the lighting but also the LOD took a hit. I hope for some good particles and weather effects still.
It didn’t look impossibly good to me, definitely doable. But who knows what the war they are in has caused. That for sure has affected them and that’s very understandable. But releasing bullshots just is not good, it’s misleading.
I really doubt it. But if they need more time for that, absolutely fine. Overall it’s not only the graphics either, gunplay doesn’t look too great either.
All this unreal engine 5 games looking sort of underwhelming from the initial promises, kind of why I’d like to see other engines used. Not only does it look downgraded it also seems it’s chugging o the fps. I do think it will still be great and wish them well.
