Anyone know when the release date is for this game?

Q1 2008, sorry I can't be more specific :(.

Wasn't the original terrible to get working on steam? (the forums were full of people advising people to buy retail)....and it was made unavailable to Australia/New Zealand and a few other countries (because the publisher realised they could be getting more of buyers through inflated store prices).

Hopefully it's a good game, I think I might end up buying retail though.

I think Steam has gotten a bit better, but we shall see.

Just to clarify - I love Valve and steam, it's been great to me and I've bought a dozen or so games through them. It's just Stalker that I had hesitations about buying (...and Activision games - they pretty much screw over Australians and New Zealanders with their pricing structure)

Again see what I meant with STEAM people (and Online distribution of PC games)?

And regarding this "prequel" its a HELL YES! I cant wait to go back to the Zone! get ready your anti-rads people!

reinstalled the first one yesterday, I can't wait for this. Time to get spooked by scary invisible mutants (if they keep them in there), wander if they will actually allow vehicles I know they had vehicles prepared for first one, but then scrapped them.

Though either way "Zone ftw"
