Back in June 2022, we shared some screenshots from an unofficial remaster of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl. And today, we are happy to report that this unofficial remaster will release on December 25th.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl Rebuild is basically being rebuilt in the OGSR Engine, which is an evolution of the X-Ray Engine. This unofficial remaster will have higher-quality textures for select objects/surfaces. Players can also expect new sounds (from mutants to dialogs and weapons, replacing with high-quality ones, creating and adding new ones), better NPCs (also with some new NPC models), better shaders effects, and more.
In order to showcase the new textures, Andrey0007 released the following screenshots. These screenshots showcase some of the improved textures. Do note that the launch version of this fan remaster will only come with a 16GB HD Texture Pack. In other words, this Texture Pack won’t overhaul all of the game’s textures. Thus, expect to see some low-quality textures here and there.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
