S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Trailer Teases Snippets of a Harrowing World
GSC Game World -Ukrainian game developers- released a short teaser trailer of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. The trailer shows off mostly interiors with snippets of the post-apocalyptic world of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 through the eyes of the protagonist Skif.
Furthermore, the trailer shows off what gameplay will actually look like as the trailer is created with the game engine. The trailer starts off with a rusty door opening with GSC Game World written on it welcoming the viewer to take a look at the world of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.
We see Skif walk down a corridor of a building scarred with crumbling walls and ominous music. As a skeleton of a tree falls down, we are taken to a makeshift camp. The lighting looks great as the glow from the campfire envelops the walls.
The trailer takes a dark turn as Skif discovers a pool of blood and accesses a PDA 2.0 before a chair is thrown at him. Followed by a fade to black then we see the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 title appear.
