Sci-fi survival horror RPG Chernobylite will bunker down on PlayStation 4 in July, with a native PS5 version to follow later in 2021. The title takes you to Pripyat and the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, where you’ll assume the role of a physicist investigating the loss of a loved one. You’ll need to build up a base, forge relationships, recruit allies, and advance your abilities in order to learn the fate of your beloved. Unfortunately, there are some supernatural secrets lingering in the shadows.
This is a role-playing release in every sense of the word; you determine your approach, so whether it’s stealth or all-guns blazing, you can play exactly as you want to. You’ll need to craft equipment, feed your friends, and gather as much information as possible to influence your choices. There’s a new trailer embedded above which should give you a better idea of what to expect – Chernobyl has been 3D scanned, so this is about as authentic as you’re going to get without literally travelling to Ukraine.
