Chernobylite is a science-fiction survival horror RPG, set in the hyper-realistic, 3D-scanned wasteland of Chernobyl’s Exclusion Zone. You’ll take on the role of Igor, a physicist and ex-employee of the Chernobyl Power Plant, returning to Pripyat to investigate the mysterious disappearance of his fiancee, 30 years prior. Compete with a hostile military presence and other stalkers, face supernatural creatures as well as a harsh and unforgiving environment in your search to uncover the truth. Get ready for a thrilling adventure of survival, conspiracy, horror, love, and obsession. Will you survive your fears?

 
  • Stealth, Survival, & Combat - Survival in the Zone is not easy, and each day brings new challenges as your comrades die and supplies diminish.  Avoid detection with stealth takedowns or engage in open armed combat.  Danger lurks around every corner.  
  • Base Building & Crafting - Construct a base from which to plan your daily operations and excursions.  Utilize workstations to craft gadgets, traps, and weapons, or modify existing equipment to your needs. 
  • Resource & Team Management - Companions are key to your survival and the resolution of your journey.  Each day requires careful planning and assignment of resources and tasks to your comrades.  
  • Non-Linear Storytelling & Strategy - No playthrough is 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.


“We’re delighted to finally announce a release date for Chernobylite on PC,” said Wojciech Pazdur, Development Director & Vice President The Farm 51. “We are extremely grateful to our community, who has supported us since the Kickstarter campaign in 2019, who believed in our vision and saw Chernobylite shape into the ultimate Chernobyl survival experience that it’s about to become.”


“The Farm 51 have done a fantastic job in creating a high-quality survival horror RPG with Chernobylite. We are all very excited for the PC launch this July,” said Piotr Żygadło, CEO at All in! Games.  “We have some exciting news regarding the console release, which we hope to share very soon.”

Chernobylite will also come to the Xbox Series X/S and to PlayStation 5. Stay tuned for more details. Chernobylite has been rated ‘M’ for Mature by the ESRB, and PEGI 18.
