Reviving old games with new mods has become a popular past time for programmers and gamers alike, with one popular target being S.T.A.L.K.E.R. which has seen it's original form released for free as well as other rather impressive mods. After a long six year wait, there is another huge mod for the game now available, the Lost Alpha Standalone which does not even require you to own the full game to play as it uses the released original game. There will be bugs, you will suffer some pain but wasn't that the best part about the game? Head to Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN for links to a preview movie and the official torrent.
"It’s been in development for five years and is now available, slightly earlier than originally planned. There are download links (including an official torrent) over at Moddb and you won’t need to have the original game installed to play. I want to spend my day in the Zone."
