Journalists get an early taste of the much-anticipated shooter game during the Summer Game Fest. Here's what they found.

Journalists had a brief opportunity to test the waters of the upcoming shooter game, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl, as part of the Summer Game Fest 2024. They were quick to note that the game demo showcased during this event is a significant improvement over the version exhibited at Gamescom 2023, particularly in terms of technical prowess.

The game's visuals have received a significant overhaul, with a richer and more immersive in-game world that adds depth to the gameplay. Furthermore, the developers have beefed up the game's artificial intelligence, making for a more dynamic and challenging experience.

Most of the gunfights in the demo version took place in open spaces. Importantly, the game displayed a steady frame rate on Xbox Series X, with no observed issues or dips during testing.

For players fond of the challenge posed by the original game, the sequel upholds tradition. There's an immediate encounter with shortages of medical supplies and ammunition, prompting thoughtful inventory management and strategic game play.

The mutation-affected creatures of the game world pose a severe threat, as noted by the journalists testing the game. Overcoming these formidable adversaries, particularly the elusive "Invisible Ones," required time and skill.

Overall, the early reviews suggest that fans of the series and newcomers alike have a lot to look forward to when S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl hits the shelves.
