S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky brings the players one year prior to the events of the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game in 2011. A group of stalkers has, for the first time, reached the very heart of the Zone-Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant-and brings about a cataclysm on the brink of a catastrophe. Publisher's Koch Media say that the game will feature a rich narrative and gripping combat action as players uncover new challenges and insights in the Exclusion Zone. A new version of the game engine, X-Ray 1.5, will apparently offer superior graphical details and realistic and non-scripted combat AI.
