In 1986, the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl power station. Soviet authorities established a 30km 'Exclusion Zone' around this nuclear wasteland, but in 2006 a second explosion rocked the stricken reactor, obliterating all living things and causing the Zone's boundaries to ripple outwards. From this epicenter came waves of mutated creatures, deadly radiation, and a strange, anomalous energy. The Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot on sight anyone foolish enough to brave the horrors within.

It is now 2012 - man has ventured further and further into the heart of the Zone driven by reports of strange 'artifacts' imbued with anomalous energy. Mercenaries and bounty hunters compete to recover these artifacts, which command extortionate prices on the black market. Others seek to find the truth behind the Zone, while some merely revel in the desolate lawlessness of the place. Whatever their motivation, over time these individuals - Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killer, Explorers and Robbers - have become known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s.

STALEKR 2 is NOT cancelled, however, we will not see its release before 2013... GSC is not closing down (at the moment).

Has there been any news on Stalker 2? Idk if that was a myth or if the idea was scrapped or something and I'm really curious because I'd love to see Stalker as a console game one day. Also Idk where else to ask other than Moddb so I apologize if this is in the wrong place.

Too bad the company is in the process of closing and moving the game properties over to their publisher. I hate to see any developer go out of business.

GSC are pseudoclosing. It's PR.

While first notes did indeed point to a pr stunt, it has so far increasingly pointed towards the real deal, even the forums on GSC main have a minor risk of being closed

Best of luck to all the modders.

Anything, friend. Best off getting a good, high-quality industry used piece of software like Pro Tools or Ableton. For making sound effects and songs I suggest Ableton, as that's more fit for that kind of creation. Other people might recommend things like Acid or whatever, you can use them (they're pretty easy to do) but I prefer the things that the industry uses a lot. Best off just asking other sound engineers what they prefer. I personally perfer Ableton for games (And yeah, I'm a sound engineer so I know what I'm on about :3)
