Mmm. Wastelands...

You kept asking us when the next STALKER will arrive, and now we can tell you (see, it’s not that hard to be patient). During its GamesCom conference in Germany today, Namco Bandai has unveiled that it will be handling publishing for GSC Game World and their latest offering, STALKER: Call of Prypiat.

It’s set for release in November 2009 (this is for Europe, it’s up to whichever South African distributor picks up the license to determine the local release date). The “standalone expansion” contains roughly seven to nine hours of additional fun, “more if you want to explore the free world”, says Namco Bandai. Now stop bugging us about it, and don’t ask when STALKER 3 will be out, we don’t know yet.
