The PlayStation 4 version of survival horror RPG Chernobylite has been confirmed for a 7th September 2021 release, with a native PS5 edition set to follow later on in the year. A new trailer captures the tense gameplay loop of the title alongside developer The Farm 51's visit to the real-life location of Chernobyl. The experience features a fully 3D scanned recreation of the entire Exclusion Zone, complete with some of the team's own horrific creations. The game will be available both digitally on the PS Store and through the usual physical version.
While everyone will play as Igor, an ex-employee of the Chernobyl power plant who has returned to the abandoned city to investigate the disappearance of his wife 30 years prior, no two playthroughs are said to be the same. "The choices and story are in your hands. Choose wisely whether to trust your comrades or not, use resources for survival or research, and to face conflicts or avoid them. The future is up to you." You'll need to engage in stealth, combat, and build up a base full of resources and allies to ensure your survival.
