Apologies if there's been a thread about this already and I am just blind, or if you already know it, but some of you might be interested in this:

I'm almost certain it will be free.

I'm looking forward to the release of the SDK that is mentioned there, too. Just imagine what the modders could do when that comes out.

I don't think modders will do much at all because they'll have all died from excitement.

Wow I love the lack of english in that post (Post = the news article). The freeplay mod sounds completely stupid also. "Lets remove a bunch more content from the game and give you the most useless task ever. Go kill stuff." Ohh wow. I'm sorry....GSC needs to stop trying...honestly. If they want to make the game have a decent replayability value they need to be adding things, not removing them. A ranking system is kind of stupid for SP if you think about it.

"We're preparing a big update with a new game mode - Freeplay, with no story tasks, including only the A-life driven ones, where the goal is to gain ranks, climb up in rankings, so as to become the best S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in the Zone."

You can pretty much do this normally if you wanted, minus the 'awesome' ranking system. I'm currently running through the game (again) just killing everything. Freeplay is a useless ploy to make us think they're working hard.

If they want to make a massive update worth it, they should re-add all of the content they removed over the past 4 years of development. The content that got most of the community interested in the first place. IE: Bring back the F*cking role playing elements

It's no wonder 75% of people have pirated copies.

That's my two cents....

Actually, I think the ranking system is already in there.

And to be fair on the developers, they speak better English than I can Russian.

I was talking about the ComputerAndVideoGames.com guys. Not really trying to be mean or anything though.

I don't like the idea of the ranking system. It is dumb for sp. Think any sp gamer really cares how many bad guys they shoot? They should not take anything away, just add to it. It's already a great game. Why take away the thing's that make it great? Why not just add more of what made it great to begin with? If they do what that article says they are doing, it will be a huge disappointment. Oh well, maybe Crysis will be out by then.
