The latest announcement by the team behind STALKER 2 caused a storm. Part of the community does not understand why developers have followed the NFT path and want to sell digital items for money. As a way of expressing dissatisfaction, some players drop positions and begin the refund process.
Yesterday, GSC Game World revealed its plans to implement the new NFT game, i.e. unique digital assets. The introduction of “metahuman” has been announced for a good start – willing players can become one of the NPCs in the world of positions.
The news was automatically reacted by the fans of the game and – as we can guess – the feedback was very negative. Since yesterday, the creators of STALKER face huge criticism, which is why they explain the assumptions of the latest proposal – NFT in the game is completely optional and will not affect the gameplay:
– S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is not a blockchain-based game
– No influence on gameplay
– Completely optional
– There will be free giveaways for the community members
– All tokens to be activated before the release
* – Blockchain is a technology used to transmit and store information about internet transactions. The “data chain” works like a digital transaction book on which blocks are written one after the other. Blockchain can be called a “digital ledger” that records a list of transactions.
The Ukrainian studio is another team after Ubisoft that decided to implement NFT in the upcoming production and must respond to critical opinions. Gamers definitely say they are losing interest in STALKER 2, some talk about refunds, and there are also bold announcements of downloading items from an illegal source.
stalker the game seriously going to scam customers? It’s very depressing. Nft bull crap is no good. We all know it’s all a scam i can’t believe your company would stoop to this.
It’s amazing how you can’t seem to get this into your head even when all of us are canceling pre-orders.
WE DON’T WANT THIS
The people who were planning on buying and playing this game don’t want this. The only people that want this are crypto bros who don’t care about gaming
It is not known whether such a strong, negative response will affect the studio and whether the developers will decide to resign from NFT.
