A new trailer, entitled "Come to Me," for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl was released today by GSC Game World. The new trailer shows off some gameplay for the upcoming open-world shooter sequel that is being built on Unreal Engine 5.

Today's new gameplay video also comes with a small message about the war taking place in GSC Game World's home country of Ukraine. Earlier this year, we were given a small look at what life has been like for many of these developers and the people of Ukraine ever since Russia invaded the country back in February 2022. It was also at this time where we learned that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl was being pushed into a 2023 release window.

The video contains footage from both cutscenes and gameplay, and gives a better understanding of the adventure beyond. Featuring a huge, borderless open-world and a non-linear story, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl releases on PC and Xbox Series X/S in 2023. The game will be available on Game Pass day one, and pre-orders are opened on our website, as well as on Steam and GOG.

We dedicate this trailer to our fallen heroes: the ones who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect Ukraine. We also want to take a moment to express gratitude for all the support we have been receiving from our players and partners during the past months. Even the basic words can do miracles when the situation is dire. Thank you so much for being with us during these uneasy times.

Since the very start of Russia's full-fledged war against our country, GSC Game World has been supporting Ukraine in all the ways we could. For those willing to do the same, we recommend following a link to the official charity fund of Mr. Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine himself: https://u24.gov.ua/‚Äč
