Stalker Clear Sky is set in 2011, one year prior to the events of the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game.
A group of stalkers, for the first time, reaches the very heart of the Zone – the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant – but triggers a cataclysm on the brink of a catastrophe. Further an immense blast of anomalous energy transforms the Zone. The once reliable and relatively safe roads are no longer save. The landscape is wiped clean by outbursts of anomalies, and previously unknown areas appear on the Zone map. Therefore Stalkers and expeditions perish or end up isolated within the lost territories.
After that the anomalous activity is at its maximum, the unstable Zone continues to tremor with outbursts. The transformation of the Zone map destabilizes the fragile balance of forces in the Zone. Hostilities for the new territories, artifact fields and spheres of influence flare up among groups. There are no more old enemies or friends – now, everyone watches out only for themselves. The Factions War has begun.
The protagonist is a mercenary who appeared at the edge of the opposition between stalker factions, Strelok and even the Zone itself. The main character experiences the key role in the events that led to the creation of the Zone right up to the point from which the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game begins.
But what new challenges await stalkers within the depths of the new zone? Why do anomalous outbursts continue to rattle the Zone? What can be done to stop them? Which faction will take the upper hand in the Factions War? These and many other questions will be answered in the official prequel – S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky.
To help you find the way in the Zone we offer Maps for all Parts of the Game. Some even have all the loot you can find included. We recommend to play the Game first without to much Spoilers since the conquering is what the Game makes fun.
In Addition you find Longplays for all Parts of the Game, if you just enjoy watching it. First those are streamed on Twitch with Commentary and Voice. Later they are uploaded to YouTube without Voice and Commentary in true Longplay Fashion. Preserving Gaming History.
