Call of Pripyat takes you once again into the vicinity of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor that exploded in 1986. This so-called "Zone" is a highly contaminated area cordoned off by the military and now is combed through by the so-called stalkers, modern fortune hunters, in search of unique artifacts.

In the role of Agent Alexander Degtyarev, who is dressed up as stalker, you have to investigate the mysterious disappearance of five military helicopters and thereby stand one’s ground against the various stalker groups.

This "mobile tank" got some cool features and now it's not just your armor, but your assistant in field you might say.


Look for timestamps below. Russian words in thumbnail: "Exoskeleton. Condition monitoring, servomotor's 'music', auto-injection".

Exoskeleton features mini-computer (with it's touch-screen located on your left wrist) and pre-installed First Aid System software. You can use it to inject medkits and antirads to yourself. The advantage of FAS is it's speed of interaction. It greatly reduces time of using 'kits and 'rads. Also, all those features new and unique animations.

Exoskeleton First Aid System


Touch-screen features First Aid System and Monitoring system (read about it in Monitoring section below). FAS consists of four buttons: red cross (inject medkit), blue cross (inject army medkit), yellow cross (inject scientific medkit) and radioactive sign (inject antirad).

P.S. For "realism" guys: what kind of medkits and antirads are needed for exoskeleton? Those are the same 'kits and 'rads you're using without exoskeleton. No, we are not going to add separate 'kits which are usable only for exoskeleton - we don't want the player to play the game where he need to find special type of 'kit just for exoskeleton. It will be boring and it will take time. So, let's use S.T.A.L.K.E.R. setting and exoskeleton's "futureness" for that - First Aid System is accepting standard medkits and antirads. How do you equip those in your exoskeleton? Well, you doing it just like you wearing your armor, helmet, picking up weapons... yeah, behind the scenes, just like most thing in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

Another feature of touch-screen is displaying exoskeleton's current condition. You can notice what suit's icon can be yellow, red and etc. The color of icon depends on the current wear condition of your exoskeleton. It goes from white (or blue) to yellow to red. From best condition to worst. Art by STRIFER, magic by Sin!

Exoskeleton features it's own sounds wrist computer and footsteps sounds. ExoStep sounds override standard footstep sounds, thanks to Sin! for realization. Sound art by Navaяo.

BONUS 3:44
Near the end of the video you can witness one bonus feature - the unique animation for medkit. It plays if you're using closed type of suit. The character is injecting medkit to his shoulder instead of palm. WELL, LET'S SAY there is special hole for syringes, so you can use 'kits while wearing closed suit.

STRIFER - FPS animation, compile and icons
Sin! - Engine fixes, scripts, config
Mr.Rifleman - 3D/2D art
SAM61 - 3D/2D art
Synap - 3D/2D art
Navaяo - Sounds

And that's it for now. Also, we aren't using source code to implement new features. We don't do any requests. Read our FAQ to know more. And please, no more "WHEN?". Thank you.

Also, we got a Facebook page, so... you can comment here, share news or something. Yeah. It's a mess right now, but it's going to have more pictures and videos later.

the town was way too empty. nothing going on at all. some snipers here and there and some mutants and something to find would spice the place up a lot. the game was a bit small but gameplay wise the best till now.

CoP has the Illusion of being huge. Most of the area in map 1 is so sparse it just seems big. You can run to the freighter/bar from about anywhere when the blow-out alarm sounds. One of the odder sights was when a dozen or more Stalkers and/or Bandits were standing outside the freighter in formation. Zombies would come up and start shooting. I'd stand between one of those guys and the Zombies. They just stood there grunting each time a bullet hit them until they died. I also experienced the sudden spawning of snorks, rats, bloodsuckers, dogs, and all the other mutants all at the same time. It was impossible to fight them all and I could use up every med kit and bandage I had in seconds. They only solution was to keep reloading a save until it didn't happen. During these attacks sometimes my character would shoot up in the air like a rocket and land far away with no damage. I got swarmed like that at the entrance to the Wild Territories (train yard side) and I shot up and touched down by the small sheds next to the unfinished building on the opposite side of the area behind the crane. (There were always Mercs posted there in the SoC game). On the return trip the between the tunnel that leads from the Wild Territories to the transfer spot to the area with the bar was so often full of all the different mutants it was just ridiculous. Another oddity was when I had to meet up with Stalkers or military to do missions. I'd see them in the distance and packs of dogs or other mutants would be jumping all around and on them while they just stood there. Once I got close enough they would "wake up" and begin fighting them but ended up dead before I could help. The only way around it was to remain at a distance and try to pick off the dogs one by one without nicking or hitting one of the men. If I did they'd wake up and open fire on me instead of the mutants. I wish that there were times I could have told them to hold their position like you could to characters in Fallout 3.

Often, they go charging in and if the enemy doesn't get them they will cross your line of fire and get killed. They always get mixed in with the melee so you can't tell who is who. All the STALKER games had this to a degree, but CoP seems the worst of all. My biggest disappointment in CoP was Oasis. It was spoken of in almost every conversation all through the game. There was an almost reverent mythology about it, and with the difficulty in finding it, I expected so much more. It was like finding King Tut's Tomb and it was a tiny broom closet with a mean dog and a potted plant! What a let down!!!! I hope any mod makes Oasis the legend it deserves to be! At least it should be another big map! I figured out its location when I was up on the water towers hunting the Chimera for a mission. It was dark and a blow-out alarm sounded. The safe place marker appeared to the side and below me but I couldn't find any opening so I ran back to Yanov Station. I went back at daylight and searched again for an entrance and couldn't find one. I studied the map and saw what lined up with where the marker had been. I quickly solved it, but I don't know how else I would have found it without searching on the Internet for it. I thought it would produce a second artifact so I could have a complete collection, but that was a no as well. The glowing artifact you recover early in the game for a mission was the only one like it as well. In several parts of the game actions could change the direction things went. One was who you gave the PDA from the missing Duty squad leader to, Freedom or Duty. Another choice was if you sold or kept Strelok's messages you found. At the end whether you chose to go or stay affected the game ending or going into free play

I read that at one point you had to side with Duty or Freedom. I never had to side with either and they stayed green towards me the whole game. My point is not a one of the event altering choices gave any indication that it was so important. There were missions/events such as with Crow or whatever the guy's name was you do a few missions for at the freighter. At one point he accuses you of having a weapon stolen from him that you bought from Nimble. In the response dialog I threatened to shoot Crow with it and that was that. Only much later when I engaged Nimble in a conversation to buy a protective suit did I see a dialog choice relating to the stolen weapon. Selecting it set off a whole chain of events from a shoot-out to having my stuff stolen from Yanov Station later in the game. This happened more than once. The PDA gives no hint or clue something needs to or can be done. The game can be played through and a whole bunch of stuff missed without ever knowing it! I hope any mod would at least put the font for the choices affecting the storyline in a different color. Adding some kind of clue on the PDA when things aren't fully played out or still open would be nice. With Pripyat the way missions kept coming up one after seemed as if they were urgent and needed immediate attention. I wasn't sure if I was working against a clock so it kept me from exploring as much as I wanted to. The game ended much too quickly. Fortunately the STALKER series conditioned me to frequent saves I finished the game by leaving with the military and then reloaded and stayed discovering that sent me into free play.

When I went into the secret lab in Pripyat by chance I found the main document to complete the mission almost immediately. I learned later there were 6 documents there in al. The other 5 had some use but only the one was the key to completing the mission. I went back later and found I missed a lot besides the documents! Another mission gets a red access card to get into a store room in the lab. It has some goodies, but is not mission essential. I missed that mission and never got the card. I think it's possible to missions out of sequence and other missions never come up as a result. Early on I was supposed to talk to this hermit for information on how to get to a plateau. While exploring the area I hit some sort of anomaly purely by chance, wound up on the plateau and the talk to the hermit mission disappeared. It didn't show up as active, completed, or failed. It was just gone! My main Pripyat gripes- lots of buildings but very few were actually accessible. The ones you could get in had limited places you could explore. The other gripe was bodies started disappearing almost immediately. I would encounter a dozen mixed Mercs and Monolith troops and had a hell of an enjoyable fire fight. When I would go looking for bodies to loot I would be lucky to find two or three. Even the exit is a massive firefight from one end of Pripyat to the other. After the choppers leave, not a body can be found. I still playing in free-play mode. I've seen everything there is to see, explored all there is to explore. The only fun is the far too infrequent massive firefights against Mercs and Monolith or between Bandits, Stalkers, Freedom, and Duty.

Awesome final installment with the potential for modding greatness.

The downsides, It is too short and when you do jobs in certain places you end up with an empty area afterwards. But Modding is the answer and mods like MSO solve that particular problem.
