But we are talking only about the protagonist of the story campaign, without taking into account the multiplayer.
The information that the main character of STALKER 2 will have a fixed appearance without the ability to change it was shared by a representative of GSC Game World as part of a Q&A session, which the authors sometimes hold on the official Discord channel.
An employee of the studio clarified that we are talking only about the protagonist of the story mode. It is likely that in a multiplayer game, gamers will have the opportunity to customize the appearance of the character. It is also worth noting that in the single-player campaign it will be possible to change equipment and weapons, so there will still be some amount of customization.
The release of STALKER 2 is still scheduled for December 8th. Previously, GSC Game World announced that it would definitely notify fans if the shooter decides to reschedule to a later date.
