This mod looks like it’s going to be huge. Their previous news posts contain model renders of weapons and vehicles, and the newest boasts at least three more: an AK-47, flare gun, and prototype rifle. The models and textures are detailed, and I can’t wait to get my hands on them.
The concept sketches contain two new enemies: a spider and an armed Soviet. There is also a modeled and textured gas mask-toting baddie wearing a sleeve-less shirt (for maximum muscle-showiness, of course). Not many mods introduce new enemies, so it’s impressive that the Ivan’s Secrets team is willing to put in the work.
On top of all that, there are also a slew of screenshots that reveal a world slightly reminiscent of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. The detailed environments and interesting landscapes are visible in every shot and the world looks full of atmosphere.
Here are some of their weapon animations that appear to be shaping up nicely… Wait a second! Is that a Steam notification in the bottom-right corner? Shame.
