The developers behind “Get Even” have revealed their next major project with Chernobylite, a survival-horror RPG set in the terrifying lands of the Exclusion Zone of Chernobyl. Here’s what you should know ahead of the games July 2021 release date.
Ever since the release of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise, it seems that post-apocalypse survivalists have really had a hankering for a good post-nuclear experience. While the Metro series did rather well, it still left fans wanting more. Well, those who are, may not have to wait much longer thanks to development studio The Farm 51.
In a recent announcement, The Farm 51 revealed their latest project, Chernobylite, a Sci-Fi Survival Horror RPG set in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. A highly irridiated area that almost no one can go into, or much-less survive in without proper protective gear.
The Farm 51 went out of their way, however, and has brought in a 3D-scanned environment of Chernobyl, allowing fans to officially experience the realism that is the Exclusion Zone this July on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game will take many lessons that The Farm 51 learned with their development of Get Even as well as World War 3 and go from there.
Chernobylite is currently available in Early Access for Steam users. The game will also come with free post-launch DLCs for Early Access adopters. Not a bad deal really. Most importantly, however, is the latest update, “The Final Stage” Mega Patch, which has been released on PC, giving fans a rather improved experience.
For PC users curious what was in the patch, let’s take a look down below:
- The entire storyline of the game has been thoroughly rewritten to make sure the Chernobylite mystery will be one to remember.
- We’ve significantly improved player immersion with all-new voiceovers in English and Russian.
- Localization for all major languages is now complete, including; simplified Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, and Spanish, allowing gamers to enjoy Chernobylite in their native language.
- A brand-new and original soundtrack from award-winning composer Mikolaj Stroinski has been implemented, building a whole new layer to a world already steeped in ambiance.
- The first part of the new level – Heist, has been added to tease what will await gamers in the grand finale.
Currently, Chernobylite is priced at $29.99 USD on Steam and GoG in Early Access. For what it’s worth, you may want to check it our or stay tuned-in for our upcoming coverage of the game once it releases.
