The Farm 51, Perp Games, and All In! Games have announced that Chernobylite, the sci-fi survival horror RPG,  will be available on PS4 and Xbox One from September 7th. The Xbox version will be digital-only while the PS4 version will get both a digital and physical release date. The digital price on both consoles will be $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99, whereas the PS4 physical version will cost $34.99 / €34.99 / £29.99.

Piotr Żygadło, CEO at All in! Games, said: “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. 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.”

Wojciech Pazdur, Director of Development at The Farm 51, said: “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. We can’t wait for people to start exploring the hauntingly beautiful recreation of the real-world Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.”

Some of the features of the game include:

  • 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.

The story of Chernobylite focuses on Igor, as he returns to the site of the Chernobyl disaster 30 years later. He’s in search of his fiancée who went missing at the time of the nuclear accident. Despite the thick miasma of radiation, it appears as though Igor isn’t the only one exploring the exclusion zone in Chernobylite. Soldiers and survivors, as well as a mysterious masked antagonist wielding some pretty hardcore sci-fi weaponry, all seem to call the exclusion zone home.
