The game is set after the events of Shadow of Chernobyl and even later after the events of its prequel, Clear Sky. Call of Pripyat puts you in the shoes of a military officer disguised as a Stalker and sent into the Zone to investigate the downing of a series of military helicopters and other aspects of life. Of course, the Zone is still as dangerous and unpredictable as ever, with periodic emissions tearing across the landscape and killing anyone who's not safely ensconced in a shelter. It's a tough world to survive in, even for an experienced soldier, and it will be even tougher to pierce into the heart of some of the most dangerous areas the Zone has to offer."
