STALKER 2 Still Happening, Official Website Adds New Art and Music

There are signs of life in Chernobyl.

GSC Game World has been keeping quiet about STALKER 2 after it was announced in May last year, but it looks the official website was quietly updated with added key art and music. It's not much, but it's a sign of life that the nuclear horror game is up-and-running.

STALKER 2's official website has some new artwork assets, and a new song which can be downloaded from the website. In addition, STALKER 2 now has an official Twitter account where it will be sharing news and content in the coming months and years.

STALKER 2 was first announced in May 2018 with nothing but a title logo and a 2021 release year. The original STALKER developers, GSC Game World, is also developing STALKER 2-though the team hasn't released any additional info since the initial announcement.

STALKER 2 and the original STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl are a series of first-person shooters loosely based on the Russian film Stalker. The film has influenced a lot of different movies, books, and games, including Remedy's upcoming Control.

Players take the role of explorers venturing into the irradiated Russian zone of Chernobyl, which was the site of a deadly nuclear meltdown. Supernatural and horrific monstrosities have since taken over "The Zone," though you might be able to survive them if you're careful.

Although there isn't much else in the recent STALKER 2 updates, it's a good sign that development is ongoing. And we'll hopefully hear more about the project soon.
