A modder is recreating the original STALKER and it looks good so far

Initial STALKER instalments, Shadow of Chernobyl, first published in 2007. As we wait for GSC Game World to unveil the fourth installment in the series, one particular fan and modder has decided to recreate the original game.

Check out the latest dev diary from GSC Game World.

first reported DSOGTuner Andrey0007 has been working hard STALKER: A fan remake of Shadow of Chernobyland revealed some screenshots of their work.

Andrey0007’s game overhaul mod is said to replace all textures with 4K versions. While some of this will be done using AI upscaling techniques, in some cases modders will also create some brand new textures.

The overhaul looks promising, albeit a little grainy.

That’s not all, because Andrey0007 has bigger plans for this overhaul mod. While we’ve seen how modders can change what is already an immersive environment, Andrey0007 also plans to replace it with higher quality sounds, dialogue, NPCs and even shaders.

There’s no denying that this particular screenshot looks great.

However, it has to be said that these screenshots may look good, but the title already has a dozen pre-existing mods that do the same job. There’s no doubt about Andrey0007’s work, as it’s a daring attempt that, with the added restraint of commitment to gaming systems and lighting, could be stunning. However, it’s hard to ignore the graininess of these shots. What do you think?

Sadly, no one knows when the full overhaul mode will be complete and ready for people to play.However, if you find yourself unable to wait for STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl or this fan-made remake, Shadow of Chernobyl is still available for purchase steam Right now (and there are plenty of mods available online to enhance your experience for now).
