If you asked me about S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl even six months ago, I would have probably cried ‘vaporware’. However, after speaking to the team and having the game played here at Snackbar, the reality is that THQ’s GSC Game World developed PC survival horror FPS is not only real, it’s also poised to make quite a splash when it ships to retail in the very near future. To further drive this point home, THQ sent notice today that the game has gone gold, as we say in the ‘the biz’.
Look for our hands on impressions of the game in the near future – as soon as we are let out of the clean room.
