stalker_clear_sky_leadin.jpgFans of GSC Game World’s S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl who haven’t yet had their fill of shooting radioactive mutants will be pleased to have installed Steam today, as the prequel has been announced as exclusive to the digital distribution platform. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky will still be coming to retail shelves early this year, but it won’t be available online outside of Steam, a nice get for the boys and girls at Valve. For a look at the first-person shooter’s ability to render grass and all things abandoned, check out a baker’s dozen screen shots in the gallery below. Official word on the game is after the jump.


  • Damnfrapperyawesome! I initially didn’t like STALKER, but then borrowed it off of my mate a few months ago and could NOT stop playing it until I finished the game (and got a LAME ending) so I’ll definately be all over this!

    Also, where is our STALKER mod report? I’ve been itching to hear about which mods are worthwhile so I can install em and play through STALKER again without the game being samey….

  • You know what’s funny? You can’t even buy the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl (the original game) from STEAM now in Australia..
