Call of The Zone


Call of The Zone is a standalone modification for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. – Call of Pripyat that allows you to explore the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone – a desolate and highly contaminated region of Ukraine that has been abandoned and closed off for decades ever since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. What has been going on in this irradiated wasteland since then? There are no shortage of rumors and conspiracy theories, each more fantastic than the last. Rumors of mutated wildlife, brainwashed cults, secret experiments, and unexplainable paranormal events abound, as do promises of great riches and wildest dreams coming true for those who are daring or desperate enough to try to break through the cordon. You are about to find out for yourself what is true and what is yet undiscovered, and experience for yourself all the Zone has to offer... or to take from you.

Built upon Team Epic’s revolutionary Call of Chernobyl mod that incorporated the maps from all three original Stalker games into a vast and freely explorable Exclusion Zone as well as adding countless features and improvements, Call of The Zone delivers numerous gameplay and immersion enhancements for your adventure into the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

Featuring a dynamic storyline that will lead you all throughout the Zone, Call of the Zone features hundreds of unique, dynamic, repeatable tasks and dozens of brand new task types. Task targets, areas, rewards are determined in real time whenever a task is offered. Infinite replayability is possible as your game will never be the same no matter how many adventures you take into the Zone!

In addition to the dynamic tasking system, the Zone itself is now completely dynamic. Factions will create alliances and go to war with each other. Anomalies can appear anywhere and shift position with every blowout. Mutants and stalkers are spawned dynamically and with far more variety. A-life is free to wander the Zone and is no longer tied to limited areas. The Zone is alive and continually transforming as you make your way through it.

Call of The Zone features numerous gameplay enhancements, custom and restored dialogs, graphical improvements, a-life enhancements, performance tweaks, and bugfixes. Gameplay and immersion were the overarching priorities, to deliver you a fun and thrilling adventure into the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone whether you are a seasoned veteran stalker or brand new to the Zone!

- Dynamic, repeatable storyline and hundreds of custom tasks.

- Added modified storyline tasks from the original Stalker series and Call of Chernobyl story mode.

- New Blackout feature: a player on very low health in a firefight might pass out from blood loss and get mugged by the attackers, or your companion may get kidnapped and you will have to rescue them!

DoctorX Call of The Zone is a standalone modification based upon the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. trilogy. Featuring a dynamic storyline that will take you to every part of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, and hundreds of dynamic, repeatable tasks with targets and rewards that are determined in real-time, CoTZ offers an infinitely replayable adventure into the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone that will never be the same no matter how many times you dare venture into the Zone!

In addition to the dynamic tasking system, the Zone itself is more alive and unpredictable. Alife population is no longer tied to predictable areas and are free to wander the Zone. Faction relations are in constant flux as alliances are forged and former allies go to war. Anomaly fields appear and disappear in different areas with each blowout.

CoTZ also brings a slew of improvements and bug fixes, sound and texture enhancements, thousands of lines of new and restored dialogs, as well as countless other improvements. If you haven't checked it out yet, stop on by! And if you've already been enjoying CoTZ, I hope you will enjoy the 1.2 update even more!

Huh its really sad that such a talented modder like doctor x passed away at such a young age. I wonder what he could have done to this mod if he was still alive because as far as I know he was one of the intelligent modders I ever had the privilege of seeing. I am damn sure the mod would have made huge progress under his command. Because the stuff, ideas he introduced to this game were sublime. Unlike most of the modders who just love to add more difficulty and graphical enhancements to the game. It was not something that doctor x did. He took a different approach. He did something unique and this is what i like about him the most. Also the doctor x contributions are not only confined to cotz. But his work can be seen almost in every single freeplay mod right now. Because most of the quests that you see in anomlay and its modpacks in coc in rttn. Are directly taken from his addons. This proves that much of a influential modder he actually was. Also shoutout to mahzra and rhon for still keeping cotz community alive and still addressing the problems of the community and helping them fix bugs and releasing community updates and making addons. The cotz community wouldn't have been the same without you folks.

Thanks. I realize that the most popular gaming videos are those people that play or review multiple games. The most popular Stalker videos are those with personalities that talk about the game or watching their reactions to playing.

I'm of the opposite view, that you don't see me and you don't hear me. It's just the game and nothing else. I do write comments on each video I upload but if you don't read those, then that's my only input. I just feel that Stalker players don't need me to explain or comment on what most already know.

Yeah i agree. Tbh i like videos like these in which there is no commentary and the person is just playing and enjoying the game. All you can hear in the video is just the atmosphere of the zone and distant sounds of gunshots Mutants and stalker fighting with one another. You deserve more subs bro.
