The first total conversion modification for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat, returning the player to the Southern Zone in the new engine, in the boots of a much loved character.
Bad news, Stalkers. Due to extremely unfortunate circumstances, development on Way of the Wolf is hereby indefinitely postponed. There is a silver lining however...

It is my sad duty to inform you, our loyal and dedicated supporters/fans, that development on STALKER: Way of the Wolf is hereby postponed indefinitely.
Due to the inability of our modeler, Joshy, to produce and modify content for the mod thanks to the badly-written and now completely unstable X-Ray Engine modeling plugins, we are unable to continue work on making the mod we the team, and you the people, want. Without modifying existing, and creating new level geometry, the mod would be a hollow shell of what it deserves to be. Because of this, we have decided to discontinue work on the mod.
I know this will come as a shock and a deep disappointment to everyone. Believe me when I say that this is not what we wanted to happen. So much work has been put into the mod so far and it's truly heartbreaking to have to abandon what has become our baby. However disappointed you are, trust that we feel ten times worse, for the disappointment we've caused you, and ourselves.
All is not necessarily lost however - developing Way of the Wolf has been exceedingly educational for me especially, in the use of the SDK/Level Editor and in general modding knowledge. I'm happy to announce that the team will be moving our attentions to a project close to my heart - the creation of Call of Pripyat: Redux v2.0.
Redux v2.0 is going to be bigger and better than ever before. I won't go into specifics in this news post (check out the Redux ModDB Page) but suffice it to say that everything you wanted v1.0 to be will make the cut for v2.0 (stashes + upgrades especially) plus a hell of a lot more. We ask that you stick around and support us in this endeavour as much as you have for WotW.
Once again, we apologize, and thank you for your never-ending support and dedication to the mod. You guys are really amazing.
- Beacon and the WotW Dev Team
