S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky Expansion Pack

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky. Official announcement.
11 July 2007

GSC Game World announces S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky for PC, the official prequel to the most atmospheric game of 2007 – Survival FPS S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.

The story of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky brings the players one year prior to the events of the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game in 2011.

A group of stalkers has for the first time reached the very heart of the Zone – Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, and brings about a cataclysm on the brink of a catastrophe. An immense blowout of anomalous energy changes the Zone. There are no more reliable and relatively safe roads. The entire levels vanish in the outbursts of anomalies. Stalkers and even expeditions die or end up sealed on the lost territories. New areas, which remained unknown since the time of the Zone emergence, appear on the Zone map. The Zone continues to shake with blowouts. The Zone is unstable. The anomalous activity is at its maximum.

Changes of the Zone map known to stalkers shake the fragile balance of forces in the Zone. Among the groupings, there flare up hostilities for the new territories, artifact fields and spheres of influence. There are no more old enemies or friends – now everyone is for himself. The Factions War has started between the groupings.

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 will have to play the key role in the events, which led to creation of the Zone up to the point from which the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game begins.

What’s waiting for stalkers in the opened depths of the Zone? Which new challenges bear in the new territories? Why blowouts continue shaking the Zone? Why did the Zone change? How to remove its instability? Which faction will take the upper hand in the clan opposition? Why did Strelok end up in the death truck? What happened to Strelok prior to that? Was there any other choice to make? These and many other questions will get answered in the official prequel S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky.

Experienced stalkers and newbies! Get ready for the new challenges in the exclusion zone in Q1 2008.

Game features:

* Atmosphere of the Exclusion Zone

Well it isn't an expansion pack considering this is a whole new full blown game that will hopefully explain all the lose ends

We know how the Zone appeared and why it's getting bigger and bigger unless the C-Cons guy at one of the Ending's wasn't lying about it. But here has to be something more deeper behind it all. If they improve gameplay from S:SOC on a massive scale and actually activate A-Life to the full extent, i don't really want to know what happened to Strelok in the end, just want to see a full living and breathing world that there aiming for in the 1.1 patch in SSOC

well it did say that new areas were gonna appear in the zone is what lead me to believe its an expansion pack, if you noticed on the stalker map thier is areas that you can't access, and maybe thats what clear sky prequel will use, the areas I marked in red boxes are what I'm talking about. You could be right tho, it maybe a seperate game.

i think you are right nite. but looking at some of the screenshots of Clear Sky umm it seems to look as tho they are in a place that we seen in some of the very first version of stalker that they decided not to go with.

Hmm, it would be a interesting idea for a Expansion.

They could fully patch the game while advancing the A-Life system and making the game full
Start a New Game > Start as the Mercenary > Finish his Story > Death Truck > Strelok Story

Or a Menu for the Clear Sky or Shadow of Chernobyl Single-Player & Multiplayer
