Background

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.
