Stalker Call of Pripyat is the third part of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series and was the most current part of the series until the announcement of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Heart of Chernobyl. The graphic engine is X-Ray 1.6 and supports DirectX 11 now. The developers included many innovations: the HUD had a makeover and emissions are new in the Game. The emissions led to the fact that you had to seek shelter. NPC’s will not suffer from the emissions too and will sought refuge and protection. Due the emissions there is also the possibility that already looted artifacts respawn.
As additional Survival element you need to rest now, which can only be done in peaceful areas like at the merchants. As always there are new weapons as well as modifications and attachments for them. In addition there was the option to continue the game in Free 2 Play mode after completing all missions. The usual factions as well as some old familiar faces are included in the third version of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series.
Stalker Call of Pripyat takes place after Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl. The government wants to recapture the reactor from the hands of the Monolith Faction with Operation Fairway. However, 5 helicopters that carry out this mission have crashed due to unexplained circumstances. You slip into the Role of the Investigator of the Situation!
As always, there is a huge open world map and the old Eastern Bloc charm makes fan hearts beat faster! As allways the Modding Community is very active and you find some highly recommended mods that enhance the game or even completely revamp the gaming experience.
