S.T.A.L.K.E.R : Call of Pripyat will be released in the UK, Nordic and Italian markets on February 5th 2010.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat will take us once again into the deadly area surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear reactor explosion of 1986. Cordoned off by the military, this highly contaminated "Zone" is scoured by treasure hunters known as STALKERS, who search the wasted lands for unique artifacts. In the role of Agent Alexander Degtyarev, we'll go undercover as a S.T.A.L.K.E.R., to investigate the mysterious disappearance of five military helicopters while facing off against various S.T.A.L.K.E.R. factions.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat skillfully combines first-person shooter action with role-playing elements in a post-atomic world that will now support DirectX11. The grim realities of this deadly environment are underscored by the many desolate industrial ruins, reproduced using aerial pictures and the developers' own photographs. Mutants, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. groups, and lethal anomalies are everywhere, posing a constant threat to the player.

The story advances through numerous quests, across diverse areas such as a secret military base, the Jupiter factory site, and the city of Pripyat. We'll be able to decide how far to explore and which tasks to undertake – freedom determines the game play. Other S.T.A.L.K.E.R. groups respond to the player in a friendly or hostile manner, depending on the group to which they belong. In this ever-dangerous world, we'll be supported by various weapon systems and upgrades, as well as several types of equipment.

Excellent, I bought both of the current games in the Steam sale, and I'm currently playing through the first. :)
I hope it steps up a gear, the first was a excellent game but the second one went downhill!!
I got the first one in the steam sale also.

Lowe did you see that there is a big graphics mod you can apply, just google stalker graphics mod

Have to start a new game to play with mod on, is certainly worthwhile if you have a fairly good machine, the graphic polish, AI tweeks and climate effects really good even by todays standard.
