The survival game Chernobylite is not only suitable for bridging the waiting time for STALKER 2. The horror survival shooter from the Polish studio The Farm 51 wants to cast its spell over you with exciting sneaking and shooting action.
Chernobylite has been in Early Access since October 2019. Now a new trailer gives the approximate release date. In addition, a new update on Steam gives you a foretaste of the release version.
Horror and survival around the Chernobyl reactor
What does Chernobylite have to offer? The action game combines survival and horror elements with exciting battles. As an ex-physicist at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, you explore a large game world that has changed a lot after the disaster there.
In addition to treasure hunters, there are also mysterious creatures in the exclusion zone. That makes it difficult to survive. You look for equipment and raw materials, build your own shelter, try to avoid military patrols and the mutants and find clues to the whereabouts of your missing girlfriend.
It is necessary to manufacture weap ons and equipment in order to defend you against the numerous threats. It is possible that you can ally yourself with NPCs in the zone and build a group that has a better chance of surviving together.
