S.t.a.l.k.e.r.s. of the world, unite!14 January 2011
S.T.A.L.K.E.R., without exaggeration, is popular not only in the former Soviet Union, but also with players from all around the globe. The universe of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. attracts more and more people internationally and the growth of interest in the mysterious Zone continues.
Now and then, we may ponder, what do the developer-native Russian-speaking community think of the game? What do they like about S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and what are their expectations of the future sequel?
The Official S.T.A.L.K.E.R. community group on Facebook has initiated the collection of questions to the Russian-speaking fans of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. You have a wonderful opportunity to look at the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. universe through the eyes of game fans living in the ex-USSR part of the world, where the project originated from. Post your questions in the Facebook group page, just make sure they are written clearly and concisely. Try to come up with an interesting question, be inventive.
Have fun communicating with s.t.a.l.k.e.r.s all around the world!

"To get recognition in a foreign land is a big honor". An interview with Bernd Frenz21 October 2010
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 problems26 August 2010
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.
