GSC’s Oleg Yavorsky has told RPS that STALKER followers can expect a full range of new environments in the next in the shooter series.

“We will present a complete set of new locations in Call of Pripyat,” said the developer.

“This includes the Pripyat river basin and its rusty fleet standing still for over 20 years now, the Kopachi village completely buried after the accident, Jupiter factory located on the outskirts of Pripyat, the railway station Yanov, and, to crown it all – an entire district of Pripyat, modeled in its real scope.

“Many players have repeatedly asked us to implement Pripyat in the game, so we decided to satisfy their wish.”

Yavorsky said the title will top both the vaunted original and battered sequel, Clear Sky.

“I think Call of Pripyat will be the most photo-realistic, and hence, atmospheric S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game of all three,” he said.

It’s out this autumn. There’s a full interview through there.
