Chernobylite is a sci-fi survival horror RPG that mixes free exploration of a disturbing world with challenging combat, crafting, and non-linear storytelling.

It is set 30 years after the Chernobyl catastrophe, and pollution is increasing due to the “unexpected activity of a dangerous substance.” This terrible thing on top of a terrible thing was produced as a result of an explosion, called chernobylite.

Here’s a list of features:

  • Explore a beautiful and horrifyingly accurate 3D-scanned recreation of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
  • Collaborate or compete with other stalkers in the Zone, but whatever you do, never fully trust them. Remember, everybody has a hidden agenda.
  • Face and survive natural and supernatural threats.
  • Immerse yourself in a thrilling, non-linear science-fiction horror story.
  • Make good use of your chemistry and physics knowledge to craft equipment and manage supplies.
  • Fight against savage creatures pouring out of an alternate reality.
  • Investigate and collect data with a set of sophisticated environmental and substance-analyzing tools.

The game will benefit from an Early Access 20% discount on Steam from today through April 30. Any purchase made during Early Access will guarantee all future, post-launch DLCs for free.
