Polish developer The Farm 51 have revealed their upcoming survival horror game, Chernobylite. Set in the present, a melted nuclear reactor core combined with various chemical substances has created highly radioactive material that hadn’t been seen since Chernobyl.
Chernobylite will utilize Unreal Engine 4 and its currently set for a PC only release, allthough the Polish developers haven’t ruled out expanding to Xbox One platform. The Farm 51 were also nice enough to release a teaser trailer, which personally has got me excited.
The Farm 51 released the following information on their official website here.
April 26th, 1:23 AM Ukrainian time. Exactly at this date and time the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe has started. The melted core of the burning Reactor No. 4 mixed with the other chemical substances to create a highly radioactive material that hadn’t exist anywhere in the world besides Chernobyl.
And we’re going to tell you the story of Chernobylite: conspiracy, horror, survival, love, and obsession in a form of a video game.
But it’s just the beginning. We’re a game development team from Poland that has been spending a lot of time in Chernobyl Exclusion Zone gathering all data and materials required to make the ultimate survival horror experience of the Chernobyl catastrophe. We want to bring you a deep, emotional story, engaging survival and horror experience, and a visually stunning recreation of Chernobyl area achieved with detailed 3D scanning of rich game world, beautifully rendered in Unreal Engine 4.
No release date has been announced, but expect more details soon when the Reveal Trailer for Chernobylite is released.
