STALKER: Choice of Destiny - Fan-game Powered by Call of Pripyat Engine Updated

A new version of Choice of Destiny, a standalone free-to-play game with a new story campaign built on the STALKER: Call of Pripyat engine, has been released.

Fan group known as SZM Team has released a new version of Choices of Destiny, a standalone mod built on the foundations of STALKER: Call of Pripyat.

The status of a standalone mod means that it is in practice a free game (similar to e.g. iconic S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Anomaly), as you do not need to own Call of Pripyat to play it.

  1. Choice of Destiny - download mod from our FTP site (the authors gave us permission to host a mirror)
  2. Choice of Destiny - official website

Choices of Destiny - the most important information

  1. The mod offers a new story campaign. Unlike most mods for this series, the scenario contains a lot of detective elements.
  2. In addition to the main storyline, the mod also offers many optional side missions.
  3. After completing the campaign, a free exploration mode will be unlocked.
  4. Choices of Destiny includes three new major locations.
  5. The mod also offers many new models for objects in the environment, characters and weapons.

Other notable standalone mods built on S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat's engine:

  1. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Anomaly - the iconic project which combines maps from all three parts of the series and focuses on sandbox survival.
  2. Anomaly Expeditions - graphically improved version of Anomaly, enriched with many additional features.
  3. Call of The Zone - this project moves an older mod for Call of Chernobyl on the engine of Pripyat and enriches it with sandbox content including a new campaign and hundreds of side missions.
  4. The Journey - a mod with an extensive story campaign that takes place in a vastly changed Zone, two decades after the events of the original trilogy.
