Release Date: Q4 2004
Genre: Survival FPS
On the afternoon of April 12 in 2006, a massive explosion shattered
the Chernobyl area. The Zone, as the area got to be known, was characterized
by anomalous energy disturbances, which rendered even the most advanced
form of protective suits worthless. Fearful of the consequences, the
military quarantined the area to prevent unauthorized entry and reassure
the local populace that the area was under control.
Almost 4 years after the initial event, expeditions can now safely
traverse several kilometers deep into the Zone. Among these are the
Stalkers, assorted groups of mercenaries, poachers and thieves that
enter the zone searching for artifacts and anomalous formations that
are highly sought after by certain organizations and groups.
You are a Stalker. Entering the zone you hope to make your fortune, but
soon you realize that your role is to discover what really happened in
Chernobyl all those years ago.
