Looks like we’re all going to need some cheering up after that last item, so how about some bleak Ukrainian apocalypse to give your day a bit of buoyancy? This new trailer for Call Of Pripyat flies through Pripyat itself – so I suppose it’s a kind of spoiler – but it gives you some idea of how large the new maps in this game actually are. I’ve yet to get there in my own playthrough of the game, which I talked about here, but last night I did discover a neat “looped” dungeon, which uses some kind of portalling to always bring you back to the same place – a kind of Escher level. Which is odd, because it’s exactly the kind of design I’d been looking to find in games recently, and here it pops up in a minor side-quest in Call Of Pripyat. Interesting stuff.
