GSC Game World, the development studio behind STALKER 2, has recently released new in-engine footage of the game via IGN. You can watch the teaser below:
In the trailer, three different scenes can be observed: a foggy forested area within the game's iconic variant of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, a dark concrete structure illuminated by a campfire, and the interior of a building bathed in crimson red light (this looks similar to the supernatural "emission storms" from the original STALKER games). Additionally, the "PDA 2.0," which players will likely use to navigate the Zone and track quests, can be seen at the end of the trailer.
According to a statement from the developers in the video description, this teaser represents "how the game actually feels: fast-paced change of scenery, ominous landscapes and the ever-present feeling of an inevitable danger accompanied by a barely-distinguishable guitar soundtrack." The description also reveals that the protagonist of the game is named Skif.
What do you think of the footage? Personally, I think it looks awesome, and I can't wait to get my hands on STALKER 2. It's expected to release on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Windows 10 PCs at some point in 2021. It will also be available through Xbox Game Pass.
