This is a story of human pride. Time is at hand when, in their utter desire to study the world, people will start destroying it. Tests of high-energy heavy particles accelerators will result in billions of microscopic black hole rupturing the structure of time and space. This will become the point of no return. A counter-strike from nature itself will follow and the Earth as we know it will cease to exist.

This is a story of human strength and true heroes. Three generations after the apocalypse, not only did humankind survive in the man-made hell – it continued to develop. Gradually, the infrastructure restored, wars stopped, people were returning to normal life. However, the crippled nature was barely starting to fight back...

So-called anomalous activity zones started appearing all over the planet, like terrifying scars left by the man-made catastrophes. The vast territories of post-apocalyptic world live their own life, which looks like nothing you have seen before. Bloodthirsty mutated monsters, inexplicable phenomena, mysterious anomalies are but the tip of the iceberg.

One of the Zones was formed in the vicinity of Ukraine, in an area combining the unmistakable atmosphere of Soviet times and the fast pace of modern life. In order to contain the dangers of the Zone, the government decided to fence the perimeter, and introduce quarantine in the area. Local residents found themselves trapped and left to their own devices. However, forbidden fruit is always the most enticing. And this was when the "stalkers" came in. Mystical artifact hunters, former military men, explorers, adventurers, armed gangsters, mafia and just those who love getting away with shooting live targets – they swarmed in like locusts in Egypt to lead mortal combat with monsters and humans alike.

This is a story about YOU.

There is a non-stop battle between stalkers' clans, between aliens and locals. You can support any side or remain a free shooter. You can give a dota tion to your mates as a leader or take every loot to yourself. And if you don't want to lose your life in a proxy war, there is a PvE server and safety zones. You can shape your own story in the Zone.

Who will you become?

  • Over 40 square kilometers of lands to explore, from closed science villages and abandoned military facilities, to the forests of Tunguska and snowy deserts of Terra Nova.

  • Deadly mutants, anomalies and hundreds of main story quests.

  • Huge choice of artifacts, gear and weapons.

  • Repair broken things or assemble new gear from scratch.

  • Improve dozens of skills and abilities.

  • Be a doctor, a scientist, a hunter, a soldier or an engineer. Take part in mass PvP, bring death or salvation to those around you.

This is the Zone. Come to hell and make it your home.

I left a good feeling when I set up this game, then I quickly understood the nullity. Being attunted by rats and baby zombies has the exit of the zone, player who steals your "resources" and possibility of dying by being Deco/computer off.

Early access review I tested this game, which still had potential, in the style of stalker or a post-apocalyptic survival reference, but seriously, this game has disappointed me so much the first few minutes of play. I understand nothing, there is a tutorial non-existent, we do not know or go, if you have to go see the blacksmith or the gun salesman, in short I understood nothing sorry. 2/10

Early access review the best desinstalation Simulator I could test. More seriously: big MAJS needed for this HIT it's ugly (GTX770 OC graphics to the bottom), it's slow (I7 @ 4790-16Gb RAM), unable to configure an AZERTY keyboard. That was enough for me, I gave up. There are more and more "dung of the genre", still happy that these are free. TEST IT TO UNDERSTAND ^ ^

Product received for free the game was much nicer before going out on steam in official version... The big concern of this game is the presence of Russian on the EU Serv (the Serv RU is working FULL CB of the coup we slap all the RU full cheat ban of the Serv RU)... DITTO for the EU Serv host in RU, we spend hours to go crazy because your bullets make 0 of damage due to the ping that is not in your camp. Graphically it's old but the game play is really addictive, needless to talk about the translation RU to ENG... need a notion in archeology to decipher. graphically: 5/10 gameplay: 8/10 Fairplay: 2/10 rots by PS ru: If you are a group of buddies the game can be very nice and addictive and you will become the Ninja masters of the I dodge the areas or play the ru ^^

This game is a mix of Dayz and stalker. It has a dark and horror atmosphere. The graphics are good for the time of creation. If you like to explore, crafter, make quests in an apocalyptyque horror environment with the constant threat of Bandit and ruthless players this games is for you. I played on the US PVP server, I never got assaulted by another player. Positive: great amount of quest crafting system of experience and LVL atmosphere horror games fluid with a regular computer (GTX 660, I7, 12G RAM) cons: dark image games that requires time for bi understand the mechanics (craft, equipment, skill points) can of players graphics that requires improvement good knowledge of English required games easier in team basically I give a 7/10 for I games.
