Some have argued (I agree) this is the spiritual successor to the old THC S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series (allegedly some of the old S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Devs worked on this at 4AGames). Anyone else following it, or planning on getting it?
Well., I bought a copy, even if YOU didn't! Excellent game so far, VERY atmospheric, looks fantastic on my rig a 2K ultra---plays smoothly as well. For any of you who like stealth mechanics this game has it (and a fair bit of blasting indiscriminately as well), exploring (usually for scarce crafting resources, the odd fire arm
, NVGs, pouches for ammo or throwaqbles, etc left lying about) & crafting---check! Keep your rather limited ammo, throwable, and gas mask filter stocks up to snuff, clean your fire arms regularly, of you'll be sorry! Weapons are VERY moddable with different stocks, sights, barrels, etc, and 4A has done a VERY respectable job of programming the various guns with real world power factors (e.g. 7.62 x 54R is a lot more powerful than 5.54 x 39, and both are much more powerful than pistol round/pistols). Successfully sneaking up on an enemy gives you the option of a hard kill (BIG knife), knocking them out, or leaving them with hands raised. Enemies will surrender if they are intimidated enough (usually by you having killed most of their buddies), and you get the 3 options of dealing with them once again. If you didn't pre order on Steam---the Epic Games Store is your only option now, until sometime in 2020.
Oh yea---------------there's a crossbow (with explosive bolts too!) late in the game for all you bow hunters!
HONEY!!! Have you seen my chest plate?
WATCH OUT! There's a tiger behi..............aaaahhhhhh; never mind!
