GSC is currently working on what it calls a "big update" for S.T.A.L.K.E.R., the developer has informed CVG.

In an interview which we'll be publishing shortly, Anton Bolshakov, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. project lead, explained, "We're preparing a big update with a new game mode - Freeplay, with no story tasks, including only the A-life driven ones, where the goal is to gain ranks, climb up in rankings, so as to become the best S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in the Zone."

When we're to expect to update wasn't revealed, but speaking about the future of the game Bolshakov did mention too that, now the multiplayer SDK for the game has been released, the developer's working on getting the single-player SDK out the door. So take note, mod creators.

GSC of course recently let slip that it's to make some S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-related announcements at this year's E3. But it's keeping lips firmly sealed on what's to be unveiled.

Bolshakov would only say that "We will be happy to share all the interesting details during the E3 in July."

although freeplay sounds good how interesting could it be. I'd imagine they have just taken the sp maps and made them mp but with no objectives would it not get boring. I could imagine maybe this is a taste of a stalker mmo to come.

I would reinstall to try freeplay, if they gave me a vehicle to use.

I don't think they meant that it'd be a multiplayer game mode. It sounds like its just a way to keep playing the game without any main quest to worry about.

oh yeah you're probably right, gamespot said it was a multiplayer mode in there article but they could be wrong.

This patch will make the game. Freeplay is much needed. It will give life to the game that it needed. :D
