Stalker Online MMORPG announced for PC, coming to Steam later this year

Stalker Online MMORPG

A Stalker Online MMORPG was just announced by developer Mobile Technologies LLC. You can stop assuming right now that the game will be exclusive to mobile devices  – an error that we own to as well – , because Stalker Online is in fact developed for PC. It is also free-to-play and coming to Steam later this year.

The Stalker Online devs say that the open world PC MMORPG is inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film Stalker, as well as by the classic Stalker games – looking forward to GSC Game World's STALKER 2, by the way. The Mobile Technologies development team is Russian, founded nine years ago and made up of 20 employees.

Stalker Online is set in the Zone, where reckless mercenaries risk their lives for the great rewards that lie in wait. Many dangerous mutants, anomalies, and the harsh weather will test your skills, while other players will surely be the most feared threat to your objectives.

Your Stalker will earn experience and unlock new skills, learn different jobs and trade with other players. Joining a faction is an option that is vital to achieve your goals, with reputation to be earned when you venture into the Zone with your party, or by yourself. You can build a base to safely retreat to when you need to gather your thoughts and organize your gear and skills.

Here are some of the features that you should find in Stalker Online. First, a massive open world with locations and architecture inspired by former USSR style. This MMORPG will feature a player-driven economy where players are able to trade items between themselves, and you get to use realistic weapons and equipment.

Stalker Online isn't a brand-new game; it is available in Russia for a while now, with some player opinions referring to the improvements that it has seen throughout the years, some of them visually.  If this was enough to make it feel up-to-date, we'll have to wait and see.

For now, you can head over to the official Stalker Online website and sign up for the upcoming beta. A word of caution though – the sign-up form requests your phone number, and you'll get the activation code via text message, so make sure that you want to sign up to play Stalker Online.
