The explosive combination of first-person shooter, immersive sim and horror is back in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, unprecedented in scale, advanced graphics, freedom of choices and the thickest atmosphere of a deadly adventure.

A long and tedious road.
The hostile and treacherous Zone.
Unbelievable treasures that might cost you everything.
A blood trial, separating your old life from a new one...

Welcome to The Zone — an area of exclusion around the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, a seamless open-world environment full of radiation, mutants and anomalies, it keeps drawing adventurers from beyond the perimeter.

Bounty hunters dwell deep into the Zone, driven by its treasures and mysteries. These people are known as stalkers.

Are you ready to become one of them?

I can almost see the beauty that you are speaking of... The complete set of stalkers' gear: poster, patches, token, backpack for the raids to the Zone, map with safe routes marks and notes, and even the official Zone permit!

They even say that there is an action figure of stalker in special ones. And the most solid catch, the real artifact with a special container for transportation. It's hard to find something like that even for the most versed stalkers, and here it is close at hand.
