GSC Game World, GSC World Publishing and Koch Media have today announced a worldwide publishing agreement for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, which will see the game released under by the games labels Deep Silver and GSC World Publishing.
“The unique atmosphere of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. caused a sensation among gamers, while the sales have demonstrated the brand’s enormous potential. We are delighted with this chance to publish the prequel together with GSC under the Deep Silver label,” said Craig McNicol, Managing Director of Koch Media.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky is set one year prior to events of the first game, with a group of stalkers having reached the heart of the Zone-Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The game is powered by a new version of the game engine, X-Ray 1.5, offering players improved visuals and non-scripted AI combat.
Last week Valve announced it had secured the exclusive digital download rights for the game, with the download to be available simultaneously alongside the retail release.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky is scheduled for release for the PC platform later this year.
