S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was one of the standout games shown during Microsoft’s E3 2021 briefing this weekend, but it won’t take long to find its way to PlayStation 5. Leaked documents published as part of the lawsuit between Apple and Epic Games revealed earlier in the year that the release is a “three month console exclusive”, so unless anything changes behind-the-scenes, it’s possible you’ll be playing it on Sony’s system as early as late July, following its 28th April release date on PC and Xbox.
In case you missed it, the new gameplay footage from Xbox’s showcase is embedded above, and shows a mixture of campfire cut-scenes and shootouts from the forthcoming release. Visually, it’s absolutely jaw-dropping stuff, and we’re digging the thick Eastern European atmosphere as well. This one’s got a huge response online, so we’re looking forward to seeing more and getting confirmation of that PS5 release date as well.
