As long as there is modding support, offline play options, and the ability to set up your own servers, then I'm fine with it at this point.

Very sad news about STALKER 2, even at my age when you think I should worry about better things than games

And news is double sad because new team decided to make MMO instead of SP!

I wish them all the best but I'm not holding my breath of ever seeing this project finished. Many have tried and many have failed, not sure if this team has what it takes to build it.

The sequel to GSC Game World's post-nuclear first-person shooter S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl is no more. The team behind the troubled S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 says that development on the project has frozen and that the studio has been shuttered.

Well good luck to them.

I think the idea of an MMO is a good one and F2P is just the way things are progressing now so it makes sense.

I'm not buying 2013 though. Not for a second. Maybe a ALPHA by 2013.

They have a lot of work ahead of them not the least of which are the mechanics, if they decide to go with some kind of persistent FPS MMO/RPG hybrid. There are very few of those that survive and those still around, most of them suck. Keeping in mind this does not mean a 24player drop in/drop out multiplayer - a persistent MMOFPS is far more taxing and far more complicated of an engine to build and manage with a high degree of QOS across all servers and for all players, possibly in the thousands, as compared to a closed map with only players [connected through some form of multiplayer protocol] no AI and really no dynamic content to speak of.

Even minor lag will cause missed hit registrations and if the FPS part isn't spot on then it all breaks down. I suspect they'll use some kind of compensation/predictive hybrid interpolation system to reduce the sense of latency. Can't just rely on hitscan.

Anyways - it's going to be interesting to see what comes out of this studio and whether or not they're open to us measly NA's players or if they are sticking close to home during the development. Count me in for BETA! (;

Better things than games?That's blasphemy!!

OK, now seriously, why such pesimism around? If I'm not mistaken GSC has said that this forum will continue to exist and so will its great modders, let alone the russian speaking community. Even if STALKER 2 isn't coming around, STALKER isn't becoming obsolete anytime soon because of the above reason.

As for Survarium, I prefer to think of it this way: These guys are the guys that delivered STALKER which is really one of a kind game. So as far as I'm concerned, there's no reason to not trust that they know what they're doing. MMO games aren't my favourite kind either, in fact I've never tried any of them for more than an hour. But I definitely want to see how this one turns out just because it's developped by these guys, and no major publishing company is behind them.

If they release it in 2013, and by release they probably mean an open or closed beta test, it will probably be very simple and buggy.

I am not aware of any First Person MMO's (apart from one, which I can't for the love of me remember the name of.... horizons, I think(?))

---END QUOTATION---




Would it happen to be Shattered Horizon, maybe?

I'm not really excited about this MMO thing. I was expecting more an atmospheric experience sort of thing. With more mutants and a lot less npcs, abandoned factories with no one around but me and occasionally a pseudogiant. But I guess it's all down the drain now.

EDIT: I don't care. s.m.r.t.e.r. 0.45 will be Stalker 2 to me.
