Ever wanted a modern exploration of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, but S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is no longer doing it for you? Developers The Farm 51 (the makers of Get Even) look to have the answer, as their new survival horror game Chernobylite has been revealed and announced for a Fall release on Steam this year!
The story goes that 30 years after the Chernobyl Disaster, the pollution in Chernobyl continues to increase due to the unexpected activity of a dangerous substance produced as a result of the explosion, called “chernobylite.” It’s rumored that those still living in the Zone are under the influence of its radioactivity, and some strange things have started to happen.
You’re returning to Chernobyl with one goal in mind: to find your missing girlfriend and uncover the secret behind her disappearance. Not only will you have to deal with the dangers of radiation and the military presence, but also the potential threat from those under the chernobylite influence.
Chernobylite “mixes the free exploration of its disturbing world with challenging combat, unique crafting, and non-linear storytelling.” Ally or compete with other stalkers of the Chernobyl zone to survive, as well as craft your gear and weapons to protect yourself from the hostile military personnel and supernatural threats lurking in the zone.
