Back to Gaming Overview

In the Game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl we find ourself in 1986. The world’s worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Soviet authorities established an ‘Exclusion Zone’ around, but a second explosion hit the reactor in 2006, creating The Zone as we know it. After that it remains a dangerous place, filled with mutated creatures, deadly radiation, and a strange, anomalous energy. But the Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot on sight anyone foolish enough to get inside.

Year 2012. The Zone is still a dangerous place and a threat to all mankind. Mercenaries, bounty hunters and explorers ventured further and further into the heart of the Zone. Driven by reports of strange ‘artifacts’ imbued with anomalous energy. To sell them on the black market or trying to find the ‘truth’ behind the Zone. Meanwhile whatever their motivation, over time these individuals – Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killers, Explorers and Robbers – have become known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s.
