The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series bibliography counts over 40 novels (in Russian) released. Its popularity continues to be so huge that book publishers have to do reprints of the novels sold out. As as result, the process of nearing the two sides – games and books – has seriously progressed. Nevertheless, it is not the first book experience for GSC Game World (given the earlier release of Heroes of Annihilated Empires series of novels in ex-USSR).

Temporary game running problems

26 August 2010 Shadow of Chernobyl, Clear Sky, Call of Pripyat

Dear players! Many of you have faced a problem of making S.T.A.L.K.E.R. run on your PC today. On behalf of GSC Game World, we would like to apologize for the inconveniences caused.

The problem of running the game is caused by temporary shutdown of our internet service. According to our colleagues, the situation will be resolved within the next few hours. For players who would like to play in single mode or in multiplayer over LAN, as a temporary solution, we suggest disconnecting the internet network cable on your PC on launch of the game, or disabling the internet connection via Windows OS tools.

We are thankful for your understanding of this situation.
