While the ID@Xbox event didn’t provide the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 blowout some were perhaps hoping for, GSC Game World still gave us a fresh behind-the-scenes look at its upcoming shooter, with the promise of plenty more to come. 

We get our first look at the new character models and costumes, cramming vastly more detail to their rugged survival clothing than the original. GSC has promised many more factions, erm, stalking the contaminated zone than the original, including what sounds like a dominant new force.

STALKER 2 will feature more than 30 weapons, including plenty of returning favourites. For those who want to delve into the finer details, there’ll be plenty of scope for modifications to adapt them to your chosen playstyle. Cue slow-motion pan of gun porn for well over two minutes.

Last but not least, and definitely not something we were expecting to hear about - teeth. GSC Game World has made characters’ teeth a vitally important part of their visual detail. The studio has developed a custom teeth tool to ensure each and every character in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 has a smile like no other. I’m going to go ahead and say these are probably the best looking teeth I’ve ever seen in a game. It’s probably not saying much, I know, but now I can’t wait to stare at their dental work down the scope of an SVDm-2. It's really above and beyond for game where everyone gas masks. Maybe should tell them.

And that just about wraps up this updated look at STALKER 2, which will be coming to PC and the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles. It’s also going to be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one.

I always get wary of a game when they showcase the graphics more than game play or game mechanics...I just hope it's good

Does having all gold or metal teeth add to some protection? Like -5% dmg from headshots? Or headshots have a 10% chance to ricochet back to the attacker?

I love how proud they're of their teeth technology that they placed it in their official reveal.

We don't even need trailers anymore, just a dude presenting some game assets. What a time to be alive! xD

I had stalker all 3 games for a very long time but i never really gave a shot, moreover i never was into horror games, now stalker is not straight horror game but it has few jumpscares:D i had my share of horror games i completed like 50% of outlast and completed all silent hill games back in the day but decided that these games are not my thing, metro franchise is as far as i would go :D loved that franchise btw I wonder if i try stalker 2 some day...

Oh as i said i havent tried stalker series properly just 30-60minutes, i seen some footage in youtube that few monsters can have few jumpscares if its really less scary than metro then i might give a try. Metro 2033 i believe had few really scary moments i remember one part when you were walking in some underground bunker or maintenance room(cant remember) and you could hear ghosts whispering all around you, damn it was well made, i remember i had goosebumps in that one
