Chernobylite receives a September release date for consoles

The Farm 51 has been confirmed that their highly anticipated sci-fi survival horror RPG will be launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this September and will bring with it an unsettling experience at an affordable cost.

If you haven’t already tuned in to one of the few streamers playing Chernobylite and watched them explore the world the game has to offer – you’re missing out. The game is going to have a lot to offer when it releases in both physical and digital format for PlayStation 4 and digital-only format for Xbox One on September 7th, 2021.

The Farm 51 has confirmed that the game will be landing on digital storefronts for $29.99 or on physical shelves for $34.99. The PlayStation 4 exclusive physical release will include a physical map of the Exclusion Zone, digital postcards, a digital artbook titled “The Art of Chernobylite”, and plenty more for collectors to enjoy.

“With the PC launch right around the corner, we’re thrilled to reveal that we’ve locked in Chernobylite’s console release for this September,” said Piotr Żygadło, CEO at All in! Games. “Working on our first simultaneous physical release together with Perp Games has been a great experience so far and a huge milestone for All in! Games. We are confident that Chernobylite will be one of the most exciting indie games of 2021 and intend to continue to give it our full support.”

The game itself is already proving to be absolutely haunting, stirring up a few jump scares, and plenty more when fans dive into what it has to offer. Some even taking their time to build up their bases, resources, and more along the way.

“It’s humbling to see how Chernobylite’s original concept, an interactive VR documentary, has become a full-blown video game, soon to be available across a variety of platforms,” said Wojciech Pazdur, Director of Development at The Farm 51. “We can’t wait for people to start exploring the hauntingly beautiful recreation of the real-world Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.”

The most unsettling part of it all? You’re going to be diving into a 3D-scanned version of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. You’ll find a hostile military presence, supernatural creatures, and a rather harsh as well as unforgiving wasteland that you’ll need to explore in order to rescue Igor’s missing wife from Pripyat.

You’ll find that no one playthrough is the same, no one base will ever be built the same, and you’ll need to master the art of stealth as well as the art of combat in order to survive. It’s certainly going to put us on edge starting September 7th, 2021, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
