STALKER 2 will launch April of next year as a timed Xbox console exclusive, announced during today’s Xbox and Bethesda E3 Showcase. The news was followed by a gameplay trailer that highlighted different gameplay segments, alongside the fancy ray tracing tech and enhanced next-gen graphics. Say what you will about the gameplay, but STALKER 2 is looking to be a dazzler.
STALKER 2 will launch April 28th, 2022 as a timed Xbox console exclusive.
STALKER 2 is coming to PC and Xbox next year, specifically April 28th. A new gameplay trailer was shown, featuring the main character in a variety of different scenarios. There was combat against hostile humans, a dangerous foray into a radioactive swamp plagued with hidden threats, and a battle against a mutant.
It wasn’t specified if the captured footage was on PC or the Xbox Series X, but what was shown off was pretty damn gorgeous (for a game set in a fallout-covered hellscape). The ray tracing was shown off, and the footage was running at 60 frames-per-second. While I have my doubts the capture was from the Xbox Series X, if that’s indeed where it came from then STALKER 2 could be one of the first true next-gen titles we’ve seen on Xbox.
STALKER 2 will release April 28th, 2022 on both Xbox Series X|S and on PC. It will be available day one on Xbox Game Pass. The game will eventually release on PlayStation, and we’ll share that date once we know it.
