GSC Game World has released a new trailer for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Heart of Chornobyl called Enter the Zone, which allows you to preview the nature of the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone, depicted in the game.

“The Zone reveals a whole new world! We can stick with the old one, fearing change… but tell me, do you want our descendants to remember us as cowards? Or those who dared to venture forward to new, better humanity?

Despite the threats that veil the journey from the ordinary world we used to call “homе“ to the unknown. Would we dare to pursue the comprehension of human nature that shapes under the prism of a new reality?

However, we are already on this path. The path to the Heart of Chornobyl itself!” said the description of the trailer.

As previously reported, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was officially postponed to 2023, however, without a specific release date. The new “developer diary” from GSC Game World clearly shows why the game had to be moved.

In a description of the diary, the studio calls for support for Ukraine and notes that despite the war, it continues to work on the game, and the team is very motivated to release it:

“War changes everything: desires, expectations, the pace of life and mindset, and even what’s waking you up in the morning. Splits the life into “before” and “after”. It makes you get used to a new reality without true safety, even at home. Some Ukrainians are forced to leave their homeland. Others have devoted themselves to volunteering or defending the country with arms.

GSC Game World is a Ukrainian company, so our story is alike. Everyone is in their place and helps Ukraine to win. And at the same time, we are working hard on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl, which development became even more momentous and symbolic. Although, it was impossible to imagine that it could be “even more” before.

It’s been 111 days since war broke into the home of every Ukrainian. It’s still here, reaping the harvest of crime and grief. And still, we are fighting back with the belief of victory.

Helping Ukraine is a good deed that everyone can be a part of. We are sincerely grateful to those who have already contributed and encourage those who have the ability to help Ukraine through the fundraising platform launched by the President of Ukraine initiative:“.
