New Publisher of STALKER:CS, 3 New Screens, and a Calendar - A News for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.

The rumor that the prequel of STALKER: Shadow Of Chernobyl will not be published by THQ has been proven to be true! Originally, it was said that Clear Sky would have been handled by GSC World Publishing, but it is now confirmed that GSC World Publishing will only handle distribution within Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and the Commonwealth of Independent States (for more information of which countries fall under the CIS, please look here). Apparently GSC Game World and Koch Media have cooperated before, and have announced a new partnership. It has been revealed that Clear Sky will be published under the labels of Deep Silver and GSC World Publishing. Koch Media is a leading marketer of software, such a partnership really sounds promising and beneficial for the next instalment of STALKER. It is the opinion of this STALKER fan that whatever direction the developement of Clear Sky under Deep Silver will take, it can only be better than under THQ. Here is what the two parties have said about this new agreement. "The unique atmosphere of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. caused a sensation among gamers, while the sales have demonstrated the brand's enormous potential. We are delighted with this chance to publish the prequel together with GSC under the Deep Silver label." -- Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, Managing Director of Koch Media "Publishing the game Heroes of Annihilated Empires worldwide together with Koch Media distribution, we were happy of the cooperation and are glad to continue it with S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky project." -- Sergiy Grygorovych, CEO of GSC World Publishing Sounds promising, to me at least. And as a bonus, GSC have released three new screens of Clear Sky. They feature already revealed locations an situations, but still don't fail at making the game look so damn juicy. GSC Game World were also kind enough to release a new calendar this month. They come in English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Czech, Hungarian and of course Polish. Calendar . Big thanks to Saavik256 and the Oblivion Lost team for releasing this story.

    Posted by RME Until they fix how the weapon models look, im refusing to play this great looking game!
    I've said this time ang time again...GSC said that that is one of their priorities, i.e. to change the weapon models and how they handle to make it look better and more realistic. It's in progress right now, but from what I've seen in the Russian previews, it looks impressive.

    Okay, after thoroughly reading that, I can't wait. I love the statistics log they produced: Evnt121: Stalker 'Gosha' #43 picked up the assault rifle belonging to 'Gosha' #84, and is now standing around with two assault rifles like a god damn fool Evnt122: Stalker 'Gosha' #7 stomped on several rats Evnt123: The dead rats' mates celebrated by feasting on a dead pig Evnt124: The pigs didn't like that and wasted 'Gosha' #43 Evnt125: Stalker 'Gosha' #61 is standing over 2 assault rifles scratching his head, because he doesn't know which is better, and cannot use both like 'Gosha' #43 for religious reasons

    As long as the game has an eerie atmosphere and the scavenging for treasure (looking through dead people's pda's) like in the first stalker, them I'm fine.
