S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and Two Other Games Release for the OnLive PlayPack

The three games OnLive released for the PlayPack are S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, Syberia II and Fate of the Pharaoh. This brings the PlayPack to 94 games and counting.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl is a RPG Shooter game from fellow OnLive publisher THQ and Ukrainian developer GSC Game World. Sadly the multiplayer part of the game is missing for OnLive, so it's single player only. The game can be played with mouse and keyboard or a gamepad.



In 1986, the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl power station. Soviet authorities established a 30km Exclusion Zone around this nuclear wasteland, but in 2006 a second explosion rocked the stricken reactor, obliterating all living things and causing the Zone's boundaries to ripple outwards. From this epicenter came waves of mutated creatures, deadly radiation, and a strange, anomalous energy. The Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot on sight anyone foolish enough to brave the horrors within.

It is now 2012 - man has ventured further and further into the heart of the Zone driven by reports of strange artifacts imbued with anomalous energy. Mercenaries and bounty hunters compete to recover these artifacts, which command extortionate prices on the black market. Others seek to find the truth behind the Zone, while some merely revel in the desolate lawlessness of the place. Whatever their motivation, over time these individuals - Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killers, Explorers and Robbers - have become known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s.



Awakening in the Zone, you are one such S.T.A.L.K.E.R., fighting for survival in this man-made Hell, while trying to discover the truth behind Chernobyl's sinister past and ominous future.

Some of the game features are:

  • An immersive storyline seamlessly blended with a living, breathing, non-linear open-world environment governed by the revolutionary 'A-Life' system.

  • Accurately modeled real-world buildings and locations from deep inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

  • Unique 'Survival FPS' game play - combines action, stealth, survival and RPG elements to create an incomparable experience in the Zone.

  • Enemy Threat Evaluation AI system - NPC characters react dynamically to environments and situations.

  • Brutally realistic combat mechanics - weapons display accurate ballistic properties and can be modified with silencers and telescopic scopes.

  • Dynamic day/night and weather system directly impacts game play.

  • Advanced physics and dynamic lighting effects powered by the proprietary 'X-Ray Engine'.
