The release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 has been pushed back a few months from spring to autumn. Fans of the franchise can pass the time until the shooter’s release with a free standalone mod called S.T.A.L.K.E.R Anomaly. We introduce you to Anomaly.
What’s the matter? After we recently reported to you about the S.T.A.L.K.E.R project in Unreal Engine 4, today we are devoting ourselves to a well-known total conversion mod that shortens the waiting time for S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2.
Although Stalker Anomaly has existed for quite some time, the download of the mod is currently particularly worthwhile. The developers have continuously improved their complete overhaul and have now released version 1.5.1 including additional storylines and graphical improvements.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R Anomaly is the Enderal of Chernobyl
What exactly is Stalker Anomaly? S.T.A.L.K.E.R Anomaly is a total conversion mod – i.e. a mod that completely changes the base game — for S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat. Thus, it is basically reminiscent of the Enderal mod for Skyrim. You can download the mod for free at Moddb.com. We show you how to install it later in this article!
Anomaly combines all game worlds from previously published S.T.A.L.K.E.R iterations on one giant map — and so no loading times. In addition, the developers have significantly revised the look of the game and added both dynamic weather and lighting effects.
How does Anomaly feel? The mod offers you the opportunity to experience Stalker in different ways. There is a new story, which is divided into four episodes (each takes place in different zones), as well as various side missions.
How do I install the mod? If you want to play S.T.A.L.K.E.R Anomaly, you can, as already mentioned, download the mod for free from Moddb.com (size 8.8GB). After the download, create a folder to unzip the downloaded files. Then you start the launcher and select the game version according to your hardware (AVX with a powerful CPU).
If you have problems installing the mod, you will find detailed, English-language instructions in the video of the YouTuber WaveyGamingAdventure:
We hope you enjoy gaming and exploring the game world!
