Moving right along, Valve Software has announced that their popular Steam service has acquired the exclusive digital distribution rights for GSC Game World's upcoming first person shooter, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky.For those of you who are unfamiliar with the title, here's a brief description:
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky brings the players one year prior to the events of the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game in 2011. A group of stalkers has, for the first time, reached the very heart of the Zone-Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant-and brings about a cataclysm on the brink of a catastrophe. Through a rich narrative and gripping combat action, players uncover new challenges and insights in the Exclusion Zone. A new version of the game engine, X-Ray 1.5, powers superior graphical details and realistic and non-scripted combat AI.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky is scheduled for a simultaneous digital/retail release later this year.
