GSC Game World's S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat is another high-profile DX11 game, although unlike what the table suggests, it won't actually come out in the United States until early next year. The original, Russian version of the title debuted in October, and a German version reached stores in Europe earlier this month.
