The new Chernobylite video gameplay gives us an appointment on October 16 to witness the launch on Steam of the Early Access version of the promising dark-hued shooter of The Farm 51, the Polish authors of the popular Get Even adventure.
The Early Access version of Chernobylite will allow us to freely explore a large portion of the Chernobyl Alienation Zone and participate in the missions of the first act of the main campaign, for a total of about eight hours of “narrative” content. The non-linear nature of the plot will contribute to multiplying the hours of play thanks to the possibility, for the user, to face the adventure again by taking junctions that lead them to unexplored areas of the map.
To recreate the ruins of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the neighboring industrial complexes and the buildings now invaded by the vegetation of the abandoned town of Pripyat, the developers of The Farm 51 have made use of the latest tools of the Unreal Engine 4 and a photogrammetry technique which allowed them to scan all the buildings and natural scenarios to recreate them in the game with a graphic and visual fidelity to the limits of photorealism.
For the duration of the Early Access phase, the Chernobylite project will be expanded with new chapters for the main campaign, additional areas of the map to be visited and new gameplay elements for the shooter module and the roster progression, all through free updates for users in Early Access. The final version of this ambitious subjective horror should arrive on PC in mid-2020, with likely subsequent release on PS4, Xbox One and, why not, PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
