S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Pripyat gets release date

Bangs down in February.

Publisher bitComposer has announced the February 2010 arrival of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. sequel Call of Pripyat.

The PC game will be among the first to support DirectX 11, which explains why these new screenshots look nice.

Call of Pripyat begins moments after the original Shadow of Chernobyl finished, sending you, a Ukranian special agent, into the heart of the disaster zone to investigate why a government-sanctioned mission to the area hasn't returned. Clue: nuclear zombies.

Developer GSC Game World has also polished numerous components of the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. formula, such as AI and quest creation.

This will be S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s second expansion after Clear Sky. Our reviews of both the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky can be found elsewhere on the site.
