Studio West Games delete Areal and returns with Stalker Apocalypse




Game Studio West Games has announced a new game. The company initially worked on the controversial project Areal, but the new title of the developers called Stalker Apocalypse. It is unclear whether the two projects match.

The game runs on Unreal Engine 4 and in addition there would be Oculus Rift support. Stalker Apocalypse has several modes of play. There are a single player, a multiplayer and split-screen mode. The game will be released in August 2016 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The purpose of the crowdfunding campaign is to collect $ 600,000, converted more than 480,000 euros. So far collected only a small percentage of that amount.

Stalker Apocalypse has a new story and contains several recognizable elements, as the description reads on the crowdfunding site World Wide Funder. There are anomalous zones and it may be impossible lived. Certain groups that try, however: the so-called stalkers. The object of the game is to survive and to do research. The different zones would constantly change based on the actions of the player.

West Games started a few months ago a campaign on Kickstarter called Areal; However, that project was suspended by Kickstarter itself. The crowdfunding platform gave no reason for it, but at that time there were doubts about the reliability of the studio and the money flows around Areal. It was striking that in a short time two substantial pledges were made, making the target amount of $ 50,000, or more than 40,000 euros, with three days to go suddenly was reached.
