S.T.A.L.K.E.R. isn't Dead Yet!
"Ain't nobody got time for your server shut downs GameSpy!" S.T.A.L.K.E.R. shouted as it booted up its own servers.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.. may have been running on GameSpy servers up until now, but the good people over at GSC Game World just released a patch for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. allowing players to continue playing on their servers instead. Steam players will receive this patch automatically, while others will have to download the patch from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. website.
Players have been instructed to create their new profiles in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat since some old data was unfortunately unable to be saved. That being said, It's a new start for everyone, so pull up your best FPS boots and get to shooting, because it's a brave new battlefield out there now!
