Don't bother to announce release dates until your game goes gold. That's still plenty of time to generate preorders and such.

It's not entirely surprising when you consider how little of Stalker 2 they've shown to the public. There's only been 1 trailer that I'm aware of that showed significant gameplay footage. I thought that was odd seeing how close to release it was.

I've always wanted to play something in the Stalker series as I quite enjoyed Roadside Picnic and the Tarkovsky film. I really should see how well they run these days.

I really liked the first STALKER.

Encased has drawn a good part of its inspiration from Roadside Picnic, though it's an "isometric" game with turn-based combat, so the gameplay is quite different than STALKER. They've also taken the concept of anomalies and artefacts you can wear to modify your stats.

They run fine on newer systems and OS, but I wouldn't recommend playing them without a basic mod that fixes additional bugs.

Well news to me as I didn't know it had a possible releases date. As the developer hasn't even shown concrete game-play yet. Classic example of bad game marketing.

Stalker is legit. Nearly unprecedented atmosphere for a shooter. They all feel pretty out of date at this point, though.

That's where the mods come in. There are quite a few that enhance those games considerably.

Maybe delays due to being distracted by the NFTs they were planning to link into the game?
Anyway since they've abandoned that nonsense I still have high hopes for this and am happy to wait if it means we get another bleak adventure in to the 'Zone'.

I'm not complaining. I might even have my new gaming computer by then.

+1. I've been waiting for the prices to go down for 2 years now, sadly that's still not in sight.

I just saw that the first game was currently -70% on GOG, by the way, 4.8 EUR.
