S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl is a survival horror shooter game set in a fictional version of Chernobyl’s Exclusion Zone. After Chernobyl’s nuclear power plant exploded for a second time, what remained of Chernobyl is haunted by mutated creatures whose powers cannot be explained with science.
The explosion also created artifacts that give its wielders supernatural healing abilities and protection from the radiation. While the artifact’s special abilities attract people who wish to sell them, there are also other groups who use them to protect the outside world from the dangers within the contaminated zone. The people who operate from within the Zone are referred to as Stalkers.
The game will provide players a unique experience of a first-person shooter in a survival horror setting. The game will have one of the biggest and most “seamless” open-worlds in video games. Moreover, the game will have a non-linear storyline as player choices will have both small-scale and global-scale consequences.
