S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Way of the Wolf

Final Status Update




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

As an idea, you could release the mod with all of the base levels from the previous games, then as a major future update you could add some of the original build levels to the mod.

You should try Lost Alpha, it will contain all levels from previous builds and release date is sooner then Way of the Wolf...

Now that you opened it, will you include locations from old builds? Like Dead city or generators?

Heard this once:
An experienced stalker is standing at a crossroads, looking at a sign:
"if you go right, there will be anomalies and a little loot"
"if you go forward, there will be lots of monsters and medium loot"
"if you go left, there will be inns, women, and endless loot"
The stalker thinks a while, and goes forward. While walking he thinks: I think I heard something about this, but should ask at the bar, what crap are "inns and women"?

Will the system requirements for WotW be similar to those of vanilla COP or will they be greater?

As with almost any mod, you'll likely need more RAM and a 64-bit OS to experience the mod without occasional crashes due to 'Out of Memory' errors. Other than that, it should be very similar to CoP Requirements :)

Man, this looks good! One question, though. Would one be able to play WotW with CoP: Complete graphics/weather/etc?

Thanks! Most definitely not, no. WotW will have its own graphics/weather improvements, anyway. Just FYI, CoP: Complete's graphics and weather enhancements are almost entirely due to Cromm Cruac's excellent AtmosFear and Absolute Texture Pack mods :)
