Back to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - June 2022 Update

Hello. We are publishing new information about Back to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. project. Let’s begin!

New information about storyline

As we said before, at this moment we are working on maps and storyline.

The concept of the plot has not changed - it's still the same story of the Marked One. However, the storyline itself will be much, much longer than the original.

We try to combine all the best moments and tasks from concepts, design documents and builds. For example, the game will have the same quest with a case and a military checkpoint that you all know about. However, the quest itself will be interactive: there will be various situations, scenes, etc...

All old (and new) quests will include some kind of interactive scenes, cut-scenes and branching in the storyline. This is exactly how the story is built in BTTS. After all, everything new is a well-forgotten old.

But do not think that the mod is based only on the ideas of GSC. For example, there are many moments in the story that we came up with or added ourselves.

We are trying to reduce the running around quests. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that at least one build-style mod will be able to completely get rid of it. That is why the augmented a-life system helps us out. Thanks to alife's work, each walkthrough will be unique. For example, during the first walkthrough, the road to the Garbage will be held by bandits, but, for example, during the new walkthrough it can be occupied by mutants or even other stalkers!

New weather

We experiment with the weather. In these screenshots, in addition to skycube from the CGIM modification, our cubes are also used. A few more skycubes will be made in near future.

Haha, yeah, i forgot to take this button down. This is just a leftover from CO-OP mode i was working on. Sadly, it was't stable so i cut it out.
