    I've only played Shadow Of Chernobyl, but wasn't Clear Sky the prequel to it? So;
    1. Clear Sky
    2. Shadow of Chernobyl
    3. Call of Pripyat, which is SoC's sequel?
    Don't take my word for it, obviously.

    Ye-es, but isn't that wrong? I always understood Clear Sky to be set a year before Shadow of Chernobyl. See?

    I know what you mean, the article is clearly wrong somewhere. I think what they meant was
    1. Clear Sky
    2. Call of Pripyat
    3. Shadow of Chernobyl
    So that CoP is the middle game, but really I have no idea. Either way I can't wait!! Will try out the benchmark (and see how much my dinosaur suffers) when I get home.

    bit-tech editorial fail - COP is the last game chronologically in the series:

    "The events of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat unfold shortly after the end of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl following the ending in which Strelok destroys the c-consciousness. Having discovered the open path to the Zone's center, the government decides to stage a large-scale operation to take control of the Chernobyl nuclear plant."

    Maybe they can use this to bench new graphics cards rather than running old dx9 junk!

    I have to say, for all the bells and whistles that come with the new engine, the textures still look like they belong in a game released 5 years ago...

    I thought it looked rather good on medium and it certainly didn't run at all badly at 1920*1200. The start of the last test was a bit ropey but apart from that I was pleased!

    Can't wait for the full game, the STALKER series is my favourite of any :)

    Here's a 1080p youtube video (with the standard 'youtube video crap music')

    I don't what's so DX11 about it... it doesn't have a very large view distance and there's pop-in of some of grass textures.

    The foliage popup was quite irritating, bizarrely switching to ultra mode doesn't seem to increase the draw distance, it instead just means more foliage is visible, meaning you notice it popping up even more!
