Let’s see if it lives up to its legacy.
To a lot of PC game players, the tense, survival action game, STALKER represents the peak of what PC gaming had to provide all last generation; while the IP is unlikely to see another new entry at this point, there seems to be something else like it on the market- the MMOFPS Survarium, which seems to wear its inspiration on its sleeve.
Of course, with this being a free to play MMO game, it is definitely never going to offer the same experience that STALKER did, but it is being developed by much of the same developers who worked on that cult classic, so there are similarities here, as well as the incentive to play their next game.
Anyway, the game is now in open beta in Europe; technically, there is nothing stopping American players from trying the game too, but the game’s servers are, at least as of now, all in Europe, so the pings might suck.
