“Yet Another Winter” mod will be retired soon in favor of textures appropriate for the up and coming season. Perhaps vanilla, not sure. Winter textures will be missed for sure, had fun with that.
Zombie survival is the go to scenario of late. In this mode spawns are replaced with waves of zombies, while Ironman simply provides permadeath. Gameplay is usually short but far more intense.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 is looking promising. May or may not have read something about crossover developers involved, may have imagined it, may be hype, hard to tell. Hardware upgrade is simply not happening this year and if requirements are too high, too bad.
