The text contains some interesting information, which was revealed to the magazine's editor by Evgeniy Grigorovich, the game's director. He emphasized, among other things, that his team introduced a slightly more modernized feeling of decay and destruction of environment to the vast world of the title (which is to cover 64 square kilometers of various biomes). In addition, the game will feature new types of monsters and mutants (such as a deformed deer), much more dangerous anomalies, and an expanded survival system. There will also be three factions - Freedom, who will want to share the secrets of the Chernobyl Zone with the whole world, the religious sect Monolith, and the Guardians acting as a kind of law enforcement.

This includes side quests and the main plot, filled with various choices (which requires more than one playthrough to get to know all possible perspectives). Both of these elements were worked on by 30 narrative specialists. To quote Grigorovich:
"Creating a non-linear story is the biggest challenge when it comes to games, and we consider the story to be one of the most important elements in our title. We're really proud of how we've managed to shape it."
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl is coming to PC and Xbox Series X/S.
