    Damm I own every Stalker game ,have not played any for more than an hours.From my memory the game loads every few meters causing a pause or hitch which drove me crazy.Using the UE4 engine I think it will be the same thing again.I find most games on that UE engine to exhibit the same hitching/pausing within the game.

    Many of that is tied to Xray engine of the original. Idk how this UE4 thing will turn out.

    At least good news.
    I will certainly buy Stalker 2.
    I finished the first two games, the third has many bugs.

    Ya when Gerard mentioned it was on UE4 I thought the same, the way things render in UE4 look great but there is something off, its weird, like to much polish, almost a wax look, the XRAY engine pushed the feeling of gritty better then anything I can remember.

    The world was never the same after COVID-19, okay why not.
    The world was never the same after S.T.A.L.K.E.R, i have a doubt ?! Maybe the gamer world !?

    It's a pity that things turned out the way they did. They should have made a sequel years ago. They must have been screwed out of all that money by the publishers or something? I'm sure there's a story in there somewhere. Meanwhile, for about 12 or so years now, other game makers have been ripping off aspects of their game and profiting.

    I remember finishing this game without realising it then thinking "is that it." It's going to take something special to be better than Metro lets be honest.

    I just hope that S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 won't be a game like The Division in which you have to share your world with other player, I am straight single-player guy who prefers a good story and gameplay over repetitive competition we have in multiplayer or MMOs. Both If the rumor are true I am in for a disappointment!

    Well this came out of nowhere. STALKER was a good game when it came out, but man was it rough. Hopefully they have the resources and time to make this one more polished.

    I never played past an hour or more of any STALKER game. I do own them all though, but they're all a bit dated by today's standards.

    I do look forward to this game though.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games were little rough to play, but I think this was at least partly intentional. They are not games where you high jump to cover, but take a careful approach instead and move slow with heavy equipment. I really liked every Stalker game, they just ran badly often times, but Unreal Engine 4 should be easy enough to utilize, so I expect better performance this time. Unreal Engine 4 is most likely the best choice given the vast games made already with it, that might load just a sec or two occasionally, but that means nothing given the visual quality. I will not get my hopes too high about the upcoming game though, since anything can happen in the industry today, but I certainly wish this game will eventually be released and tell something concerning the nuclear accident. That said, the story doesn't absolutely have to relate to that very accident, any other catastrophe would fit as well, since I think it's not defined what exactly makes Stalker game a Stalker game. For me, essentially it's the general area at eastern Europe, a scandal, anomalies, mystery and loneliness.

    Also important to remember is that the Stalker games where graphically way more advanced than majority of games at the time. Sure, they weren't technically the full package like Crysis, but certain areas like shadows were just so good you missed them years after. Most often, successful games are part of technical innovation, which in the case of Stalker games were indeed the vast "levels" with the NPCs and graphics, that really enchanced the mood in a drastic way. Is Stalker 2 going to break any poundaries or just focus on the story part? We don't know, but it's fun to imagine what would be something technically advanced that could be used in a game like Stalker.
