The event was arranged as a quest. According to legend, one of the stalkers had been poisoned, and the other players had to look for an antidote to this poison that was a new NON STOP S.T.A.L.K.E.R. limited-edition can. Also, quest participants were to answer questions related to the game, take a picture in the themed photo zone and post stories in social media with hashtags #NonStopEnergy and #stalker2_thegame.

For the first time, the drink showed up in 2007 in the debut game – S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chornobyl.
