S.T.A.L.K.E.R. prequel gets date

Clear Sky in August.

Deep Silver and GSC World Publishing will be releasing S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Clear Sky around the world on 29th August.

The game been expected towards the beginning of the year, but a slight delay is unsurprising given the legacy of the first title.

Clear Sky is a prequel that offers an alternative view of the events in the 2007 PC original, granting you the opportunity live your life as a mercenary and fight for numerous factions.

Alongside all this will be smarter enemies and technological improvements to the open-ended world of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is based around the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl in a fictional world where everything went even more pear-shaped than we remember it. And we loved it; it was gigantic and scary, if a little rough around the edges.
