After the excellent campaign Kickstarter that last year allowed the developers to collect 206. 000 dollars (double as requested), and certificates of appreciation from users who participated in the closed alpha last month, The Farm 51 announced that Chernobylite will arrive early on Steam and GOG starting next week, or since 16 October.
The price initially envisaged is 36 dollars but the developers have decided to lower it further to 29, 99. Moreover, following the idea of non-exclusivity on the publishing platforms, the version in early access will be released not only on Steam, but also on GOG through their program called “Games in Development”
We see the new trailer showing how the Chernobyl exclusion zone has been recreated in the game. Good vision.
After a few years of working on an extremely accurate reconstruction of the Chernobyl exclusion zone, the developers have prepared a video that compares real places with their virtual counterparts. You will see how the characteristic places of Pripyat and Chernobyl have been digitized in game settings with the help of photogrammetry and other advanced 3D scanning techniques implemented as part of their Reality technology 51.
For greater authenticity of the world setting, in the initial version all Russian game dialogues were recorded, with the help of the voice actors of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and the Metro series first. The game is already subtitled in English and Russian and the following languages (English and Ukrainian voices, subtitles in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Hungarian and more) will be added immediately after the launch of early access
The full version of the game, instead, is scheduled for the second half of 2020. After the release on Steam, the game will also appear on other digital distribution platforms for PCs
ABOUT THE GAME
Chernobylite is a sci-fi horror survival experience for the team that made it Get Even .
The game mixes the free exploration of its disturbing world with exciting fights, unique abilities and non-linear narration.
Chernobylite uses Unreal Engine 4 and is based on Reality scanning technology 51, which is being developed by The Farm 51 for over five years.

You can spend as much time as you need to prepare, but keep in mind that your story is still being written. Always evolving.
