Thanks Chode for the heads up on this.
GSC/THQ have finally released a new trailer for the much-anticipated S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl (the first official trailer in almost 12 months). It comes in at 43MB, and shows off their DirectX9 renderer in a night-time environment. There is also a low resolution 8MB version for download.
The DX9 renderer is shown in all its beauty (although in the future we will show this functioning in full outdoors and in daytime). Lighting is all dynamic – even each blade of grass casts a shadow from any light source.
Combat AI is demonstrated - team actions, accurate reactions from the sounds of characters other beings, accurate reactions from the grenades as well as the AI ability to evade gun-fire and grenades, camping skills as well as ambush and group attack.
