The Zone ... The Zone is constantly changing ... After each release, sone of the traps disappear, but even more appear. Safe places become impassable, and fields covered by anomalies may become a straight road. The path can simple and easy, but can confuse you to death. This is the Zone! It demands respect for itself, otherwise it will punish! Sometimes stalkers die as soon as they leave the refuge with a full backpack of swag. Not everyone here survives, but from those who can, the Zone regularly collects tribute. Not only the corpses, but also injuries and ruined lives. The Zone seems to be a living, rational being to many of stalkers, but there are those who are seriously convinced of its divine nature. United in the group "Monolith", they decide that the Zone wants to spread. In order to help it, this group has created a device that, provoking emissions of anomalous energy, should extend the Zone to our entire planet. Happy hunting, stalker! May the mutants not meet you, an anomaly will not hook you, you will not be covered with the outburst, let the enemy bullet pass you by, and let the artifacts come to your hands!
