The developers of Stalker 2 have published new screenshots, which impressively confirm the attention to detail of the studio and the performance of the Unreal Engine 5 used.
Last August, development studio GSC Game World confirmed it Stalker 2 will be based on the new Unreal Engine 5. The developers have now published five new screenshots of the survival shooter, which impressively showcase the quality of the graphics.
Stalker 2 screenshots: Highly detailed environments
The screenshots provided by Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl show great attention to detail. Only PC gamers have been used to getting this graphic quality from provided screenshots or even rendered images, but with Unreal Engine 5 it’s clear that developers are able to increase the level of detail dramatically. In each screenshot you can see countless small details, realistic lighting and atmospheric conditions, as well as a large number of polygons. Ray tracing effects are also used here. However, one can only hope that the developers have not revised the screenshots after all.
Stalker 2 is supposed to offer a non-linear storyline, where the player’s decisions have an impact on the course. This is not only about short-term consequences, but also has to have an impact on a “global” level. The address location is the restricted area in Chernobyl. Players will be able to explore both familiar and new locations and landscapes. Motion capture and photogrammetry of shapes and faces should be used. The developers have announced support for the mod for PC.
Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl will be released on April 28, 2022 for PC and Xbox Series X | S.
