In a recent interview, GSC Game World PR manager Zakhar Bocharov partially touched upon the topic of modifications for STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl. According to him, the capabilities of Unreal Engine 5 make it easy to implement mod support and freely transfer fan creativity into the game. In the game’s official Discord channel, the developers confirmed that they are actively working on mod support in STALKER 2.
The GSC Game World team is optimistic about releasing dedicated modding tools right in time for the game’s release. There is a possibility that the toolkit may be released later, but mod support in STALKER 2 will be implemented on time. The developers note that it is most likely not worth waiting for mods on the console version of the game. Active work is only on the implementation of mods on the PC.
The developers promise to maintain complete freedom for mod authors. GSC Game World does not recommend violating copyrights and user agreements.
STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl will release on December 8, 2022 on PC and Xbox Series X|S.
