    Very strange that they're selling multiplayer bonuses when they're not even listing a multiplayer mode on the store page yet.

    I think you'd benefit from giving it a try before comparing or worrying about this vs that.

    Seems they want to protect the integrity of their paid campfire stories for now.

    You want those exclusive drunken stalker stories you worm? Then pay the 140 dollar preorder price that includes our next 20 story expansions slated to release up until 2030 and bonus DLC skins for a possible multiplayer mode we haven't even started working on!

    150GB? Jesus Christ.
    I have the storage and plenty to spare but that's almost half of what the Series S has onboard and 1/5th of the Series X

    The only positive takeaway I got from the store page is the map size - they're listing 64 sq km, which is the size of the Hunter Call of the Wild reserves and those maps are HUGE to traverse on foot, like, REALLY HUGE, probably bigger than the Call of Chernobyl All-3-Games-Maps-Mashup together.

    Just like many were predicting: thanks to advances in technology, developers will just get lazier. 150 GB, wtf. Even Flight Simulator was trimmed in half recently.

    Fun fact - you can buy the exact same faction patches that ship with the Limited and Deluxe editions on Aliexpress for about 1-2 EUR.

    From my experience, 3x the size not means 3x the content, more like 3x the size of one game with the same content of one game and while that sounds cool, walking for miles on empty maps gets old pretty quickly. Unless they plan to use procedural generation to fill those areas with something to do, maybe placing rare anomalies that you need to hunt on really dangerous areas with high probability of spawning more dangerous mutants would be cool but I dont have my hopes up for that.

    I can just imagine those 20 minute walks between Minimap "explore this icons" with procedurally generated terrain stamps and speed tree clumps with randomly spawning enemies.. Mnnn that Stalker sensation I've grown to love.

    Hello, Stalker Creed: Chernobyl

    The amount of retards posting with the implication that they somehow expected an expensive, UE4 game releasing in 2022 to be a PC exclusive and will now not buy it because it is also on consoles is staggering.

    Well, but releasing on the consoles isnt the only issue, the issue is exactly what you said, this is a multimillion project and we arent on 2004. Releasing on the consoles on 2021 means the pressure for accessibility to appease the console mainstream crowd on this must be huge and we might get a Metro Exodus with a huge but empty open world and lots of little question marks on a map to chase with fast travel. Basically, Stalker Creed, so, until they release more information, being skeptical is being smart about this.

    Fuck it, I'm tentatively interested, but I'd rather have a GOG release. Need to see some proper open world gameplay, too, this had better not be STALKER: Heart of Metro 2033. It's no rush, maybe I'll finally play CoP by spring next year, but either way, this is the first potentially worthwhile thing I've heard come out of this E3 crap so far.

    P.S. If they tack on some decorative skill trees, can we move this thread into General RPG? I'd certainly rather read about this than Horizon Zero Interest or Asswipe's Creed etc.

    64-km²? That's three times Vvardenfell, so expect empty/proc-gen space aplenty.

    30+ firearms? I wonder if that's counting unique variants. Just under 40 different guns were usable in the first three games combined.

    150 GB of space? WTF?!
